Attic Sale Recap 2017 & Another Blockbuster Sale Coming Up In Irvington — September 29, 2017

Attic Sale Recap 2017 & Another Blockbuster Sale Coming Up In Irvington

Once again, the Irvington Presbyterian Church Attic Sale did not disappoint.   This year I did exceptionally well for myself and I will give credit to the fact that I went on the first day of the sale (my first time) which may have made the difference. But then again, I have also done well when going on the second day when pricing is much better and there are still great selections.  Some of the items in my haul were a Lands End turtleneck for $4.00, a Kenneth Cole black wrap dress, a See by Chloe funky dress (I am loving it), a Marc by Marc Andrew tunic/dress – and each dress was $10.00. All the clothes were in pristine condition.  Talk about steals; it was a great score.  I did focus on the clothing FIRST. I took my time and went through the racks which were incredibly organized as is the entire sale. They have designated areas for furniture, books, shoes/handbags, jewelry/crystal, fine china, accessories and so much more. I scored a special edition Barney’s Lady Gag tote bag which is just gorgeous at the unbelievable price of $5 – YES $5. I just had to buy for my equally gorgeous niece who I know would love it. I just have to tell you that this sale is packed and there was always a line to get into the handbag room and the jewelry room – it really is growing in popularity every year for both sale lovers and collectors. I can’t emphasize it enough – this is a really great sale that should not be missed if you love these kinds of sales. All proceeds benefit multiple worthy charities in the Westchester area so all the money is helping others!

If you missed the Attic Sale, the good news is that right next door to the Irvington Presbyterian Church is the Church of St. Barnabas. And….wait for it….St Barnabas is having their Fall Outreach Clothing Sale starting on Tuesday, November 7th. I have been to this sale as well and all I can say is these sales are both equally phenomenal and not to be missed. This sale includes fall/winter clothing, shoes and accessories for men, women and children – they also have a Christmas room and food is served in the café. The main purpose of this sale is to raise money to support the outreach efforts of the parish. Over the past twenty-plus years St. Barnabas has donated over $726,000 to charitable organizations throughout the area.

Here are the details:

Irvington Presbyterian Church’s Attic Sale held on September 11th and 12th Recap — October 1, 2015

Irvington Presbyterian Church’s Attic Sale held on September 11th and 12th Recap

Just a quick report on the Irvington Presbyterian Church’s Attic Sale held on September 11th and 12th. To give you an idea on how successful this sale is, from 2000 – 2014, over $250,000 was raised and donated to many noteworthy organizations – just a few are Autism Speaks, Habitat for Humanity, Make-A-Wish, Salvation Army Food Pantry – it is quite an impressive list. I took some pictures because I DON’T THINK PEOPLE REALIZE JUST HOW BIG AND HOW GREAT THIS SALE IS. Please bear in mind, that I have been going on the second day, I can’t begin to imagine just how much merchandise I missed by not going on the first day. I understand that the home décor/ kitchen section pulled in a couple of thousand the first day.


The men, women and children’s section was extensive and had clothes for all seasons including winter coats (which were being scooped up all over). The houseware section is amazing to say the least as well as all the other sections.


I went on Saturday (the second day) and had a blast—I had to make two trips to the car. I bought a red plastic table for my little porch ($2.00), an adorable large tin decorative holder ($5.00) that I will use to hold my cooking magazines. Journals for my writing were $1.00 Each, I bought two packs of greeting cards ($2.00 each), a Banana Republic long sleeve tee shirt ($4.00). The book section is very book lovers dream. They had to have thousands of books for just $2 and $3 for hardcovers. I saw quite a few new releases.


I went through all f the following sections:
Café (the coffee was awesome)
Children’s Clothing & Shoes
Men’s Clothing & Shoes
Sporting Goods
Women’s Clothing & Shoes

I said it once and I will say it again, this sale should not be missed for thrift lovers. I will of course keep you posted on their next sale. I just wanted to share my experience and a couple of pictures.

Until next time, HAPPY SHOPPING!!!
