Weekend Finds late October

Linking to Apron Thrift Girl Thrift Share Monday and Her Library Adventures.

Welcome to Sherry from AU Hello Vintage and Pam from Our Adventures in Home Improvement.

On Saturday there were two 'big' sales, one at the local church just up the hill (a twice yearly event organized and run by the Parish Men's Group), and one at a regional Catholic high school (a yearly event) run by the parents and kids as well as the school staff. Both events were very well attended.

Pickings were slim for the things I look for. I couldn't find any rusty metal, old door fittings or wooden boxes. Both groups had an extremely generous volume of items for sale - lots of big furniture (tables and chairs, beds, dressers, couches, side tables etc.), and sale tables were covered in dishes, kitchenware, plastic containers, books, picture frames, Christmas decorations, bikes, sporting equipment, glassware, Halloween costumes, fabric, toys, videos, electronics (lots and lots), clothing, garden stuff... as well a higher end china, glass, clothing, decorating collectibles.

  5. Some days are better than others, aren't they? You found some great things though. I especially love the suitcases. They always catch my eye. I guess for me it's the association with traveling to new places or visiting family.
