My friend is the head of her church rummage sale and was watching the donations for Pyrex bowls for me. She called to report none were donated this year, but she hoped to see me on Saturday at the sale. I had to explain that I won't be able to attend this year, all the girls in the family are going to Lake Geneva to celebrate my sweet sisters birthday. Come on over today and shop we will be here until noon.
Three workers busy pricing last minute donations, setting up displays, and all the wonderful treasures were spread out in the church hall. I was getting first pick, a dream come true for me.
I did pick up a few items from the sale, handkerchiefs were priced at ten cents, such lovely tatting, and lace and the best part is that I always have a hankie in my purse or my coat pocket.
I have a weakness for matryoshka dolls/nesting dolls, and will pick them up whenever I find them if the price is reasonable. This set of matryoshka dolls/nesting dolls stamped made USSR was priced at only two dollars.
I thought this pin was whimsical and fun, I have no idea where White Oaks is located, but my coat lapel will be sporting this cutie come the wintertime.
I picked up a few cookbooks, and a biography about Madame Curie written by her daughter Eve Curie copy write 1939, and several children's book that I will share with you later.
If I would have had room for this blackboard, which is really green, it would have come home with me.

|Rowles company Arlington Heights, Illinois was priced at $15.00.|
I was taking a quick peek through the clothes racks when I saw the dress hanging katywampus from the hanger. While I was taking these photos, my friend told me a story about the dress. It seems a parishioners daughter owned this dress, but she suddenly passed away. This dress has been sitting in a closet at the parishioners house for over twenty years, this year she was finally able to release the dress and donate it.

It makes me wonder about all the stories that thrift treasures could tell me if only they could talk.
