Shop Church Rummage Sales; Prices Beat Garage Sales.

This Sparked Me!

I love church rummage sales. Get there early and bring a bag to hold your treasures until you check out. The pricing is done by somebody who didn't own the item, and they really want to see it sold and get rid of it. It beats driving all over when so much merchandise is in one place. Fun for me.

    Regarding church rummage sales, you are quite right about the pricing by a person who didn't own the stuff. I had the greatest fun working with a church rummage sale pricer back in the 90's, and her philosophy was to price it low so they didn't have to deal with leftovers after the sale.
