Hello, all, this is a good news-bad news kind of post. Despite the fact last weekend was prime yard sale opportunity, I was sidetracked having some work done on my car, so couldn't avail myself of the finds out there. The good news was, the day before was Bering Methodist's semi-annual rummage sale, which I definitely did attend. Unlike last November, this time I thought to bring a shopping bag and a rolling milk crate, so it was easier to haul around. Here is a picture of some of the booty from it:
The haul include two crocheted doilies, a Vera sugar bowl and creamer, new box of Christmas cards, madras pillow sham, two black pillow cases, an Edith Holden tin, a heavy red and white striped metal board with a hole for hanging, a cute bird tray, four candles, four silver plate salad forks, ten books, a big old gourd and a few small odds and ends. This sale is separated by category and set up in different parts of the church offices, class and meeting rooms, so I paid in each section, not at the end. I think it was less than $20 total. Some of the books and other items will go on ebay, so it's possible they'll make sufficient $$ to cover the total spent.
It is a very well run sale, with a central spot for parking so you can leave what you've already purchased and go empty-handed to another section. Prices are excellent and the member volunteers friendly and helpful. Recommend A+++++. Will go again in November!
I'm going to post this on Frugalicious Friday at http://www.findingfabulousblog.com/.
See you there!
