It is that time of the summer when my local churches open up their basement halls and cover their parking lots with a plethora of garage sale goodies.
Their prices are so unbelievably low it is hard for me to feel comfortable.
These women and men work tirelessly to price and sort huge amounts of stuff all in the name of charity.
Lucky for me I always get to share in the gift of grace by helping clear their tables of vintage goods.
Vintage Christmas Tom and Jerry book.
My boys loved this cartoon.
So much so I sewed a Tom and Jerry costume for them in preschool.
They turned out to be the cutest two there...
Box full of Shiney Brites.
Piled high to the brim and priced at a dollar for the lot.
Worth the trip right there.
Some I have never seen up close.
The gnome is flying on a saucer sled in the snow per the edges of ice around the base.
More chenille trim.
Both marked Japan.
Super cute edition of Father of the Bride.
The illustrations are darling.
The Whitman classics are a favorite among many.
Anne of Green Gables...swoon.
And Dolly Madison...not in a plastic wrapper with icing...my kids couldn't believe it!
Prayer ladies at a church sale of course.
Adding these to my blue collection.
Another tablecloth in sunny summer colors.
As I waited in line to check out with my loot
I realized I didn't even have ten dollars worth of stuff.
Without hesitation I placed my money on the table and told them I didn't need the change.
This is well worth the charity.
