#SaturdayThrift- My first Church Rummage Sale

Well, it was indeed a glorious day for a Church Rummage Sale! It was super sunny and the weather was agreeable, at least, with me. Not too cold and not too hot! So, off I went to Clinton, MA.

My outfit for the day

It’s a lovely drive down MA 62 and I decided to be bit adventurous. Along the way, I stopped and took photos of objects that struck me. There is no rhyme or reason behind these…. except for the Cadillac (at least I think it’s a Cadillac). Mr Vintage Flicker had one of these back in the day, when he first moved to America from Germany. He has threatened/mentioned (you choose) to get another one for us to cruise in.  I’m not sure he’d actually do it, but I like to tease him!

Really, you want this piece of junk? To each his own– Cadillac!

Along MA 62, Just on the outskirts of Berlin, I drove past this quaint old car! I just had to stop. Counting Sheep Antiques will be opening in March 2016. I will certainly have to pop back and see what goodies they have inside. Side Note: It was slightly dangerous taking this photo on the side of the road. But I decided that it was worth the risk in the name of Photo journalism/bloggerism/some ‘ism !

Just outside Clinton, still in Berlin is the West Street Station. They are rebuilding the station, so may be these tracks will have trains on it again. I do have a love for train travel. A trip on the Orient Express to Russia or Switzerland is definitely on the bucket list.

Train tracks, where do they go?
Opposite site, RailRoad Crossing

I just love old signage. Look at this Bear… He looks happy doesn’t he?

 

Clinton has a Weetabix factory. It is huge! I’m not sure what was going on, but when I got there, Fire trucks were leaving. False alarm I reckon!

I didn’t take any other photos of the factory or the Aqueduct across the road as I running late at this point! Maybe next time. The Rummage sale itself was successful for me! I got some lovely china – Wedgwood, Johnson Brothers, Limoges ; vintage linens ; casserole pot,  foundue sticks and a few other bits.

I’ll be spending the week photographing these items for the shop. But I’m so glad I decided to take these photos along the way! How was your weekend? Do anything fun?
