This weekend I went to my favorite church rummage sale, which is held one weekend in June each year. It did not disappoint. I look forward to this sale all year because I always find something vintage for a great price. The sale begins on a Friday evening. When you arrive at the church there is a line out the door waiting for the sale to begin. Mark and I had planned to go out to a special dinner for our anniversary that night. When I learned that this sale was happening at the same time, I changed my dinner reservation so that I could shop first!
I bought all of this stuff for $12.50! I kid you not!
Here are the treasures up close.
A set of pink depression glass. There was a box of it on the table which had 3 dinner plates, 7 bowls, 5 cups and 5 saucers. The price....$7 for all! I snatched that up instantly.
Pottery. I'm always on the look out for vintage planters.
I was lucky enough to find some old McCoy.
More Pyrex bowls. These are not my typical color choice, but I still like them. I may sell them too.
I also found some vintage linens at this sale. This yellow & gray tablecloth is in great shape.
The reason I am so successful at this sale is that Mark and I do the shopping as a team. When the doors open he goes one way and I go another. This way we can cover more ground faster. That is the key to success at this type of sale where everyone is grabbing in a mad frenzy. It is fierce competition those first minutes when everyone is looking to find the best stuff! He is actually a better treasure hunter than I am. From the above photos he found all of the pottery and the Pyrex bowls.
This lot of treasures was round 1. We paid $12.50 for all of this, loaded it up in the truck and came back to search for more. I will show you what else we found tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by today!KayteeJane
