As you may or may not know, two months ago I started a local group that involves coupon swapping, bartering and good old fashioned swap meets. We bring donations to every meeting for our local church’s food pantry and/or clothing closet in return for using their hall.
Last night we combined a coupon swap with a swap meet. We brought things that we could no longer use and then had the opportunity to pick new (to us) items to take home. Whatever isn’t taken, goes to either the church or the local Salvation Army.
I apologize for the lousy pictures, but I totally forgot to even take them until the end of the night. Some people had already left and most of the items had already been claimed. However, I’m going to show you anyway. 🙂
Here’s two of the tables after they’ve been picked through. I would like to add that I talked someone into taking the salad spinner after I saw “Salad Spinner Art” posted on Pinterest. You should look it up! Anyway…
Here’s the start to someone’s goody pile. The shoe box. It had a pair of new, fabulous sandals that I had won online a few weeks ago. They didn’t fit anyone in this house 😦 so I posted on FB that they would be at the swap. One young lady kept her fingers crossed that they would fit her. And guess what! It was like Cinderella and the glass slipper. She was very happy indeed.
I fell in love with the only item I came home with. A box of stampers. They were all different shapes and sizes with varied themes. They belonged to a friend’s wife, who passed away several years ago. I’m glad that I get a chance to love them now. 🙂
