I went to the Church of the Advent Garage Sale last Saturday.

The Church of the Advent is just down the road from us and every year they have a garage sale. I try not to miss it. You never know what you will find. Silly me, I went with about $30.00, but it is better to ready than forfeit some wonderful item because you didn't bring enough money. I spent an amazing $5.00! That $5.00 gave me five individual purchases...


A vintage rayon scarf to be used for costuming a figure - $1.00...



An elephant eggcup with a few chips around the top, but I love it - 50 cents...


A 1920's silk screened? paper lampshade - 50 cents...


two very old cake racks that may be used in my studio or maybe in the kitchen - $2.00...


A tiny Wade vase ( with a chip on the inside lip, but no one will see it when I use it for a figure or ornament) - 50 cents...


A bag of 1920's/1930's bridge tallies - In it were these three designs...


This Autumn landscape...

This Hallowe'en design...


This unused Hallowe'en bridge score pad...


And inside the score pad were four pumpkin bridge tallies. All of these bridge tallies cost 50 cents.

You never know what you will find. I have never ever found any Hallowe'en items before. The lampshade may be made into something I'm not certain. I had to show you my great inexpensive purchases.
