Better than Brimfield!

8 Oct

Every year, the town of South Hadley, Mass has a town-wide tag sale (and a craft fair on the town common). There is a central hub of activity at a church in the middle of town and individual families put their old stuff out for sale on their lawns up and down just about every street in the town. I have always had good luck in years past and this year was no exception. Here are my spoils:

  • three vintage footstools ($4.00 ea. = $12)
  • a safety ladder that I hope I’ll never need to use ($10)
  • an Oreck portable canister vac for quick clean ups and vacuuming the stairs ($5.00)
  • a birthday gift for a friend who loves chickens and roosters ($3.00)
  • a tiny head for my head collection, a tolle tray pin, a diamond brooch ($1.50)
  • a big ceramic urn found on the side of the road (free)
  • Grand total: $31.50 – woo hoo!

Sooo much better than Brimfield! And we had freshly fried apple cider donuts — yummmy!

    Wow! I didn’t know about this event! I wish we had been around for it… judging from your finds, it’s well worth the visit!
