Yard Sale Saturday, March 6th

Today was the annual yard sale for the Hosanna Church, right up the road.    The majority of the churches around here discontinued their annual yard sales after Katrina (not sure why), but this one continues.   They obviously have a generous membership, who donate a large assortment of household items, books, crafts, toys, accessories, etc.   I always find items of interest here and came prepared with three of my shopping bags to load up.  

Finds:
-- Small assortment of jewelry for the found items box ... (except for the elephants; they are for my sister who collects them).
--  A large assortment of sewing related items.    Ribbon, lace, two boxes of threads, needles, buttons, transfers, fabric paints, Amish Quilt kit, magnets, closures and a flower press for the microwave.
--   (Not shown), Two full boxes of sewing patterns.


I'm happy to have the return of yard sale season.   Although I'm well past the point of needing any more supplies, I find it great fun going out.

Thanks for the tip on Pine Island rookery. I'm seriously thinking about giving that a shot this year.

I see you had a pretty good haul. Over here, it's mostly electronics, toys, books or clothing at these kind of sale.
