When I headed out the door on Friday morning, I had a list of 9 estate sales that I wanted to try to get to before I had to pick up the kids from school. Of course they all started at the same time and they weren't close to one another. I decided that my best bet would be the 99+ family church rummage sale. I thought it would be like a big flea market. I knew that I had made the right decision when I showed up and my aunt who owns the vintage store was there.
I have wanted a Tupperware baking mat FOREVER and found one of the vintage ones from 1958. I also found 2 Starbucks mugs, a turquoise drinking glass, a single book shelf, and this funny Big Boy Barbecue Book from 1963. The illustrations are hilarious. The prices at this rummage sale were so ridiculously cheap. I got all of the items in this picture for $2.25. There was so much stuff and so many people that I had to go through all the tables again to make sure I didn't miss anything.
That was when I saw this........
You might remember in a blog I posted last month that I bought one of these from my favorite antique mall booths. There are two differences between the one I bought there and the one I found at the rummage sale. First, the one I previously purchased has Bakelite handles where as this one has the wood handles. The other difference is that I paid $12.95 at the antique mall which at the time I thought was an awesome price. At the church rummage sale I picked up this little beauty for, are you ready? 50 Cents!! It is in perfect condition and it had been sitting on the table waiting for me for a good 30 minutes before I found it.
Can I just tell you how much I have decided I love church rummage sales?
Not pictured is the gallon Ziplock bag of chip clips I got for a quarter. Sister made fun of me about that purchase but little did she know that chip clips were actually on my Target list.
