The true kick-off to autumn for me is our local Harvest Festival. We wait for it every year. The village closes the streets for a street fair, sidewalk sales, food vendors, yard sales, and two really great church rummage sales.
Our favorite rummage sale is held by the presbyterian church. The yard and basements are filled with all kids of goodies. The block around the church is taped off with caution tape. People pack the perimeter. At 10 am the bell goes off, the tape is torn down, and it is all systems go! Last year they raised around $30,000!
Book section finds. $4.50 worth of winter reading.
Table runner and some small jelly jars ($.50) too cute to leave behind.
Wool vest and cashmere scarf stuffed (among other things) into my $2 brown bag sale.
Beautiful cast iron skillet.
I've been a bit behind in the posting due to a allergies complicated by a cold. Golden rod is good for the bees, not so good for me. The Harvest Festival was just what I needed to set me right! Hope you all are finding fun things to do to set off this autumn season! See you on Tuesday..
