We've had a lot of (very welcome after an exceptional drought last year) rainy weekends lately, so I haven't been to very many yard sales so far. However, twice lately Mr. B has called from the car to steer me towards some good events. A couple of weeks ago it was a rummage sale at Christ the King Catholic Church two minutes from our house. There I picked up two small Starbucks bowls, a glittery Christmas tree and an interesting Hadaki lunch tote, all for the grand total of $3.00. This past Saturday as he left to run errands, he called with a sale in walking distance of our house. I grabbed wallet and keys and took off to the drive half a block down the street. There I scooped up two Pottery Barn galvanized metal boxes with lids and label holders that still had their $18 price tags on the bottom, as well as a chicken wire tray, a large candlestick broken into three parts, but still very usable to make something with, three samples of Farrow and Ball paint from England and a wicker bag, $5.00 total.
Do you enjoy yard sales and church events? What were some of the best you've ever encountered?
Until next time,
