Carney Thrifted Finds

Every October, 3rd weekend, Arch Bishop Carney staff, parents and students host their huge Annual Garage Sale. Doors open at 8:30 Saturday and the lineups are amazingly long. 
DH finding an "Ascot on Oak" Mason's coffee pot was a highlight.
Imagine finding a Rockingham creamer (DH found this too)!
The delicate painted flowers around the base and on both sides of the creamer are lovely.
Just a few more vignettes of some of the Carney weekend finds.

Thanks to all the volunteers who sorted, set up, worked and then cleaned up after this huge garage sale (gym, cafeteria, two long hallways, multi-purpose room and even outside the gym doors).
