ROMP Rummage Store
The ROMP Rummage Store in downtown Locust Grove funds the work and upkeep of the museum, while also providing a service to area residents with useful household items, appliances, clothing, and furniture for sale at reasonable prices.
The store stocks a variety of donated items and will continue to ask for and accept donations to help keep it stocked and running. Donated items are tax deductible, as ROMP is a 501(c)(3) charity, and donation letters will be given out.
ROMP Rummage Store is be fed by and feeds the local community with useful used items that people might not be able to afford new.
The ROMP Rummage Store is located at 110 E. Main, a corner shop in the In-N-Out shopping L at the downtown stop light.
HOURS OF OPERATION:
The museum is expanding its reach and hoping to bring more people from across the region and everywhere to Locust Grove this year and in the coming years, and we need the community’s help. Along with the Locust Grove Arts Alliance, and the Locust Grove OK Area Chamber of Commerce, we also are interested in reviving downtown and trying to fill empty shop spaces and help Locust Grove thrive.
The rummage store has a back room that serves as a ROMP annex. This room houses past exhibits from the museum. Currently, the ROMP Annex features an exhibit on autograph book poetry.
