Finally a few sales!

I have been enjoying my week being a kindergarten substitute, but I have also missed my unlimited time looking for treasures.

So, on Saturday, I headed for the downtown area in Crystal Lake to visit Material Girl.  It is a fabric shop plus.  In their basement is a large assortment of clearance fabric and trim.  I bought some tassels for about 30 cents each.  The trim is now 70% off and they still have a large assortment.  Around the corner is a great store, Carriage House Antiques.  I love it in there!  I found a pink metal candle holder for $3.  I am going to hang it outside on a tree, but not use a candle in it.  I am still looking for the right item to go in it.  They will be having their fall open house in a few weeks.  It is always so much fun going to it.  They even have food for the shoppers.  That's my kind of sale.  The downtown area is hosting a yearly event, Johnny Appleseed festival on Sept 28th.  The antique store across from Carriage House Antiques will be having a flea market during the event.  I'm definitely going to that.  I always like to go to a new flea market.

Remember, Thursday is the church rummage sale in Prairie Grove on Rt 176.  Saturday and Sunday is the last Mukwonago WI flea market.  Also, there is a church rummage/barn sale at the Kane County Flea Market that weekend. Lots of fun sales to go to. Hope you can make one of them.
