At the risk of sounding totally cliche, T.G.I.F.! This week’s been a doozy of the tiring variety, and the worst part is, there’s no good reason for all the fatigue! At any rate, let’s look ahead to this weekend…one that will, fingers crossed, be filled with secondhand shopping and maybe a nap (or three).
♥ Hidden Treasures Mid-October Sale: Stock up at this St. Anthony thrift, and enjoy 40% savings both today and tomorrow, on everything from furniture to books, clothing to kitchen goods.
♥ Assistance League Thrift Store Designer Sale: Shop this Penn Avenue thrift today and tomorrow for 75% savings on designer jewelry, shoes, purses and clothes. All art work is also half-off this week!
♥ Vintage-Packed St. Paul Estate Sale: Finding vintage clothes at local estate sales is a crap shoot, but this privately listed, east-of-the-river sale looks promising, with an abundance of clothes, head vases, tools, military collectibles and so much more. Early birds will get the worm at this event; it starts at 7:30 a.m. tomorrow and goes ’til 5 p.m. (Sunday hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.)
♥ Calvary Lutheran’s Annual Rummage Sale: Running today ’til 5 p.m. and tomorrow from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., this Southside sale has become a fall tradition for me. I was there bright and early this morning, and scored some gems, including a vintage Woolrich car coat, a brass and glass candle holder, a new-old wool quilt, an oil painting study of a dying geranium, which I know sounds weird, but is actually quite pretty and some other various kitchen-y things. There’s still tons left, and more to be put out, so hop over to. Bargain-hunters take note—everything’s FREE tomorrow between 2 and 3 p.m.
