Get Me to the Church on Time

But only if there's a rummage sale. While I do love mid-century church architecture, I have no interest in being in one unless a) there's a rummage sale or b) someone I like is getting married. Today's sale was actually in the school portion of the complex, but the glorious quarter-circle entrance to the church was appropriately fawned over.

At first glance I didn't think this sale would amount to much, but we found some good stuff. Some interesting clothing (for the fabric), and vintage linens were cheap. And can you figure out what in the world that towel in the lower left is getting at?

I found several pieces of jewelry: nice 60s black and white flower pin, small rose pin, odd gold and pearl (real?) clip on earrings, and a gold key necklace that is engraved "Mayor Bill Morris" on the reverse. I also nabbed a nice black and white silk chiffon scarf.

I was very intrigued by this metal, flowered bowl from England. It's rather heavy and quite pretty and for a quarter, why not?

And then the books and CD. I've already pulled out a bunch of the story book's pages to make little origami envelopes to wrap up jewelry purchases from ye olde crafte boothe -- lots of cute illustrations in that one.

Okay, I totally missed that bowl. Methinks they didn't have all the stuff out when I was there! So much for being the early bird!

At least it didn't go to someone who didn't deserve it. ;)
