    I went to a church sale over the weekend and found this wall hanging for 2.00. There was another gal there I knew and she got upset as I told the lady I'd take this and she said, well I wanted it. Well I asked first, sorry, wasn't giving it away, it's all ready on a hanger.

    wall hanging.

    Nice find! I love Church sales. Always seem to find something and they never ask alot of money. I did find a 1943 Domestic sewing machine in the cabinet with all attatchments for $20.00. Looks like it was hardly used. We have 1 church in town that has a sale every 2 months. This place is packed with stuff and people. I always seem to find decent fabric. Can't wait for the next one in October.

    Thank you, this church has one huge sale once a year. People wait in line for up to 2 hours for it to start and when they open the gates watch out!!!!

    I agree, I didn't see it till I was paying for my items, but so glad I told her I wanted it.

    My thoughts exactly! If I see something at a sale, I pick it up right away - can always set it back if I change my mind.
