A Thursday Evening Church Sale

Last Thursday I decided to check out a church sale that started at 5:00pm. Unluckily for me I had to drag my 5 and 7-year-old long. We arrived 30 minutes before the sale started and were probably about twentieth in line. I gave both my boys $3.00 to spend and promised if they stayed beside me we would hit the toys at the end.

The Christmas room was the first place we hit. We found this adorable bottle brush tree with mercury glass garland wrapped round it. Its condition is great!

After that it was a crazy run around the sale. Right inside the front door there was a clothing rack full of bags of all kinds and since I forgot to bring one along to fill with my finds. I grabbed one of the biggest I could find and away we went!

My boys spotted this harmonica and for $1.00 it was within their price limit.

Yep, they did play it while we walked around the sale. I’m sorry if we annoyed anyone.

A lamp that needs a little work, but for $0.50 I had to buy it.

I was trilled to find a few vintage electronics. They included a portable AM/FM radio for $0.50. A cute 1950’s DeJUR Citalion wind up movie camera, but by favorite is the old camera.

The electronics!

The camera is Yashica EE Rangefinder circa 1960’s. It’s complete with case and instruction booklet! So Fun!

And finally, I bought a suitcase for our family vacation we will be going on soon. It also worked great to pack all my finds into safely get them back out to my van after the sale.

My boys were also happy with all of their small finds! It is so great to see them out having as much fun as me at sales! It ended up being a super great middle-of-the-week sale!!!
