Last week was St Peters Episcopal rummage sale in Poolesville. Starts on a Thurs night which was kind of nice (April 7, 8 and 9). Mila and I were waiting in line to get in at 5pm. People actually ran when the tape was lifted. It was a bit weird. It was a fairly quick drive through the country back roads. Everything is so beautiful right now with the trees in bloom. Maryland farmland is just so lovely. This was a decent sale. A couple small tents of furniture outside. Some small vintage finds. Prices were fair/good. The Pyrex, flour sifter, vintage hat and one other glass item that I forgot to take a pic of because I already put it on the mantel (I will get a pic when I finish redoing the mantel for Spring) came from here.
Also last week was the rummage at St James Episcopal Church on Seven Locks in Potomac (starts Friday morning April 8). I had actually been to this one before and had the same luck. Not so good. You would think because of the area that it would be good…not so much. We arrived about 15 mins late because we had to sit in traffic (the roads were wet) but I honestly didn’t think we missed much. I bought the clothes pins (which may not even be old) for $2 and the size 5 Jessica McClintock will be nice for Mila’s dress up box ($6 is pricey, it was not in pristine condition, it is having an oxi-clean bath now). I might skip this one in the future.
Also noticed that St John’s Church 9120 Frederick Rd in Ellicott City was this same weekend (April 8 and 9). Maybe I will try this one next year?
