First Congregational Church of Rockport, MA

We are looking for Donations!

As listed in the categories under Team Leaders, the church is looking for a wide variety of donations to sell at the Old Sloop Fair. In addition to artwork, tools, lamps, collectibles, garden supplies, linens, jewelry, hand-knitted goods, kids’ stuff, and white elephant items, rugs and small furniture — especially antiques – are welcome too.

This year, we will NOT be accepting:

  • Books
  • Electronics
  • Exercise equipment
  • Bulky furniture
  • Items the receiving & sorting committee (RSC) feels will not sell

If you should have any questions or concerns, please email a photograph to of any piece you are considering as a donation to the Fair. Your email will be directed to the appropriate team leader for review. We will respond to you within a week.

These exceptions are necessitated by the new rules at the Rockport Transfer Station. Anything that we cannot sell, we will have to pay to have removed from the church premises and also pay to have accepted by the Transfer Station.

Please note the drop-off schedule for Fair donations at the church. If you would like to drop your donation off on another day or at another time, please call Jack Reed at 978-546-3221.
