Spring has sprung and while for most people this evokes images of flowers blooming and children playing in parks, I start to get a bit giddy by all the upcoming church rummage sales in my neighbourhood. I know that there are many sales across the city, but I boldly believe that the ones here on the West Side are some of the best. They rock it old school with lots of wonderful donated items at affordable prices. And for those folks looking more for antiques, collectibles or fine jewellery, most will also have their “treasure room” and as expected the prices for those items will be a bit higher.
While the shopper in me would rather keep quiet about these sales so that the line ups aren’t too crazy, the blogger in me really wants to encourage everyone out there to come and check them out. In the end, it is all for a good cause and there is enough for everyone–young and old. I believe that the more we can do to keep stuff out of the landfills the better. And if I can find something that I love, and maybe even need, for a great price in the process then it is all win win. You just never know what you might find!
Here are some of my favourites. If you would like to share yours, you can include it on the poll below or in the comment section.
