Our church did a really cool thing this week called the Day of Bounty. Everyone brought stuff they no longer wanted ( had to be in good condition and working) to the church. On Sunday after church we had a no cost yard sale for the church family. It was so much fun!
Here is what I got:
A 1972 singer sewing machine and cabinet. Now my youngest dd has her own sewing machine!
Complete Set ( only used once) China Pearl Noel pattern Christmas Dishes!!!!! I have always wanted a set of Christmas Dishes. This set is beautiful! When no one took it by the end of the day I just knew it was mine! Go here to see the pattern.
A 4 cup pyrex measuring cup!
A paninni maker. We have always wanted one. We had cheese sandwiches last night. It did a fabulous job!!!!
Several dish towels. I can always use them.
2 picture frames.
2 lamps and one lamp shade. One is a piano lamp. Our old one broke a few years ago. Its nice to have one again!
1 Body Works lotion ( new) DD 1 favorite.
1 bottle of alcohol ( for crafting!)
lots of clothes
And an entertainment center! But not the one that was at the Day of Bounty. There was one there so all who wanted it put their name in for a drawing. We did not get it ( a family who really needed it did!) A friend told us they were getting rid of theirs and that we could have it. It is huge! All the tv and music stuff will fit nicely in it.
All the left over stuff goes to our clothes closet to continue to bless folks in need through out the year.
