If you’re lookin’ for something fun to do tomorrow morning, please swing by Mighty Swell’s rummage sale, part of the Standish, Ericsson & Cocoran Neighborhood Garage Sales and a fundraiser for Rae’s wedding and honeymoon. It’s our second year participating in this awesome event, and yet again, we’ve cleaned the clutter from our kitchens, book shelves, walls and closets to pack the shop’s sidewalk FULL. It’s scary who much stuff we’ve got to sell. And, seeing as we’re thrifty ladies who love bargain hunting at rummages ourselves, we’ve priced everything to move. Tons of things costs less a buck and we’ve got bins of 25 and 50 cent items that are brimming with cute clothes, accessories and shoes. It’ll basically be bargain central, with a heavy dose of vintage. Take a minute to peep our Craigslist listing here and bear in mind that it’s truly just scratching the surface.
New this year is the bake sale element! If we’re buds on Pinterest, you know I’ve been plotting what to make for weeks on my bake sale board. Tough decisions were made, and the final winners include Nutella puppy chow, Rolo bars, coffee cake muffins and last but not least, strawberry-rhubarb hand pies with fresh rhubarb from my garden. Rae’s also going to be putting her trusty mixer through the paces tonight, and if you’ve ever sampled her baked goods, you know they’ll be out-of-this-world good. Even her mom’s pitching in some treats! (Cute.)
There are 150+ rummage sales going on the surrounding neighborhoods, so get your bargain hunting boots on and come over! You can pick up sale maps tomorrow morning at the Standish Ericsson Neighborhood Association office, Citizen Cafe, Hudson’s Ace Hardware or the Corner Mini Mart. We’ll be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., although it’s likely that we’ll be setting stuff out early.
I hope to see y’all there!
