This post is probably a bit belated since I’m writing about something that’s happening tomorrow but, if you’ve got the day free I highly recommend a little road trip to Winnetka.
Why, I’m sure you ask. Well, its the Winnetka Congregational Church’s rummage sale at the Winnetka Community house.
I was able to preshop the sale there today because my parents’ both volunteer at the sale and I was able to pick out some good things.
For my money, I think that the book department is one of the best things about the sale. There are so many beautiful art and architecture books (some of the ones I bought are below and yes, I bough a lingerie book at a church rummage sale. It garnered quite a look from the church lady who sold it to me). I snagged the books from the Louvre and British Museum for 2 and 3 dollars respectively. A steal, right?
Clearly this book was meant to be, it had a book mark from my second favorite bookstore, the Boulder Bookstore!
I also managed to snag a vintage (from the 90′s, yes that’s vintage fashion now and it kills me a little) dress from Laundry though it didn’t photograph well. It’s a bit snug so hopefully I’ll be able to squeeze into it for some weddings this summer. Fingers crossed…
Let me know if you go and get anything good!
