SPCA “Digging for Gold” rummage sale March 30

The sale will take place from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, March 30, at Highland School in Warrenton. A preview party takes place Friday night, March 29.
The Fauquier SPCA will host its 11th annual “Digging for Gold” upscale rummage sale Saturday, March 30, at Highland School in Warrenton.

An early bird sale and party will take place from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, March 29. The cost is $25 per person. 

Admission to the main event — from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday — is free.

The biggest fundraising event for the animal shelter, the tag sale has brought in more than $150,000 in the last decade. 

The Fauquier SPCA uses all proceeds from the sale for funding and operational expenses at its animal shelter near Casanova. 

The tag sale relies on donations from the community. 

“The whole sale is a treasure hunt,” said Penny Dart, who helps organize the event.

Citizens may drop off gently used furniture, lamps, rugs, china, silver, jewelry, garden accessories and more from 1 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 27, and noon to 7 p.m. Thursday, March 28, at the Highland Lower School gym.

Donations are tax-deductible.

The sale does not accept clothes, exercise equipment or TVs.

About 40 volunteers help run the sale. 

Angela Keyser, Tammy Statler and Ms. Dart, members of the SPCA’s fundraising committee, started the rummage sale about a decade ago. 

For more information call, Ms. Dart at 540-347-5138 or Anne Hall at 540-347-1268 or email Angela Keyser at or Tammy Statler at

Highland School is at 597 Broadview Ave. in Warrenton.
