Trash to Treasure Sale

Hello everyone!  Guess where I’m going to be bright and early Friday morning?  That’s right, it’s time for the annual Trash to Treasure sale! 
Every year, after Christmas, I start looking forward to this sale!  Usually, I have to travel about 40 miles to where it’s held but this year it’s about half that distant!
According to a recent newspaper article, they raised $173,000 at last year’s sale!  Proceeds are given to local charities!  I remember the first time I went.  Hunter was about 4 and Savvy was 2.  I took them by myself using a stroller.  Fourteen years later, it is going strong and gets bigger every year.  Now, there is no way I would go by myself with two small children!
These pictures are from Facebook and gives us a little glimpse of what will be offered.  I’ve got my eye on that Blue Willow!
How about all this vintage dishware?  Look at all the pretty colors!
It’s being held in an old Wal-Mart so it’s going to be a big spread!
Here’s a gorgeous sideboard!
This is what I want!  I LOVE this chair and it looks in pretty good shape!  I’ll probably have to be in line 2 hours ahead of time to get this!

Hunter likes the old scales.  Oh, did I mention that this a family outing for us?  LOL! The hubby takes off work to go every year.  Since, it’s closer to our home, he said he’s taking his own truck and I said that’s fine with me!  Now, there won’t be anyone trying to rush me!

There is something for everyone!  Toys, boys, tools, furniture, clothes, linens, collectibles, jewelry…….
Click here, if you would like to take a look a last year’s sale.  Next week, I’ll share my goodies with you!
Thanks for stopping by!
