ToniOnThrifting Chapter – 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
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!!!
