Church Rummage Sales in September

I certainly didn’t want to miss the last Thrifty Treasures over at Southern Hospitality, even if I am late to the party.  Yard sale season is starting to wane around here, but thanks to a bout of Indian summer, there were still plenty to keep me busy this weekend.  So many in fact that I am going to just share a few of my favorites now (or you may get really bored).  Friday I went to a church rummage sale that was fantastic!  I got there about a hour after it started but there were still so many things to choose and the prices were amazing.

I picked up a boat load of purses, they were .25 cents each.

And this was .10 cents.

Then on Saturday I went to another church sale.  This sale was not as good, there was not very much stuff and it was priced kinda high.  All clothes and shoes were $2.00 each no matter what it was.  Faded Glory t-shirt $2.  men’s snow pants $2.  So I bought my hubby the snow pants which I forgot to take a picture of, left the t-shirt and then found this in the bottom of a pile.

It is a genuine Chanel purse!!!!!  For $2.00!!!!!  I would normally think it was a fake except the leather on the inside is so soft and lush.

It needs a cleaning, but I did my happy dance out of there!

So are you ready for yard sale season to be over or are you still out on the hunt?
