Good Sale, Good Cause!

Well, I’ll be damned! I thought it was a rummage sale, but it was an Indoor Yard Sale! Whatever you call it, it is a good sale for a good cause, the Dolgeville CAT Project Trap/Neuter/Return.

I never knew there was an old Dolgeville Library.

Last week I drove to Dolgeville to drop off a few donations to the sale. One of the ladies working today recognized me from when I dropped them off. Since I had gotten rid of a few things, I felt justified in purchasing a few more. Yes, I have too many things, that is why my house is such a mess, go ahead and judge me.

Ooh, what a nice Santa!

At least I kept myself from getting any more Christmas decorations! We have so many, we never bring them all down from the attic in any given year.

There was quite a wide selection.

I did not look much at the clothes, except for two pairs of sandals trimmed with rhinestones. However, I resisted them as something I would probably rarely wear. I picked out a few CDs with local music. How could Mohawk Valley Girl resist local music?

I didn’t get any toys, either.

I did find a set of stackable desktop trays. Just what I need to organize my coffee table! I also picked up a rectangle cake pan. I like cake. Then I grabbed a smallish cloth bag and a laptop bag.

After I had paid for my purchases, I put the CDs in the small bag and the cake pan in the laptop bag. One of the ladies working found a large cloth bag for the desk trays. I happily paid another dollar for the big bag. It is a nice bag!

The sale continues till 3 p.m. today, Nov. 13, and continues Saturday, Nov. 14 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Local readers, I encourage you to check it out!

More Saturday Adventures

To return to my Saturday adventures: after breakfast and returning my book to Frankfort Free Library, my friend Tracy and I drove through Ilion into Mohawk to the Mohawk Antiques Mall, where 4PetsSake Food Pantry was holding an indoor garage sale.

The place was hopping, but we managed to find a parking space. We went to the indoor garage sale first, admiring some antiques we walked by to get there. It was fun looking at the various vendors.

We got into quite a nice conversation about art with the guy from Riverstone Sculptures. Tracy recognized his unusual style from some pieces she had seen at the Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts. He told us how he looks for different shapes, utilizing things such as automotive parts and items from the hardware store. I asked if they had a website, which led to a discussion about computers (they are not online).

We moved on to where the 4Pets Sake people were selling food.

“We could have had breakfast here,” I said. If you read Tuesday’s post you may remember that we refrained from having ice cream for breakfast. Hot dogs for breakfast, however, I would find quite acceptable.

Instead I bought some cookies, a plate of Italian ones and some chocolate chip that were three for a dollar. Tracy ate one of those and I piggily had two (I did mention I was up three pounds as a result of the weekend). We saved the Italian ones.

After that we went into the regular Antiques Mall and looked around. We met the owner of the mall. He was pleased to welcome an out of town visitor. He told us about an Elvis impersonation contest planned for May 10.

“Tracy would be interested in that,” I said. “She loves Elvis.” I like Elvis too and immediately made a note of the date.

We also checked out the Factory Outlet Store. A lady handed us a coupon good for one day only. We did not make any purchases, although Tracy was tempted by some vests. Perhaps on a future visit.

We were very pleased with our visit, which was only one of our planned adventures for the day. The Mohawk Antiques Mall is located at 100 E. Main St., Mohawk, NY.
