New Mystery Item and Church Sale

I had a great day sourcing yesterday. I went to 2 church sales. The first one, the church is closing its doors and was selling tons of stuff. Books, office equipment, dishes, craft supplies, holiday decorations and more. I put together a huge pile for $50. Filled the back seat of my car and the trunk. The second sale was over and they were loading up the things that didn't sell when we arrived. Someone said go on in. Everything left is free. FREE?! Cool. I only got 2 things but free is great. One was a set of fireplace tools. The other is pictured below. I don't know what it is. It looks like some sort of stand for doing some type of needlework? or quilting? If anyone can help me out please let me know in the comments.

This year I'm going to try to make a point to get to as many church sales as possible. I usually find great deals when I do. How about you? Do you go to many church sales? What's your favorite place to source?

  1. That definitely looks like some kind of needleworking stand. Church sales are the best. You never know what you will find and the prices are usually crazy low.

  2. It's called a scroll frame. I've used one for cross stitch but I imagine it might work for needlepoint too.

  3. My Grandma used it for hand quilting. Great find!

  4. I have one myself; I used it for needlepoint but it can be used for other types of needlework as well. Great find!

  5. I wanted to go to some garage sales this past Saturday, but my parents came in from Wisconsin and we were busy cutting down trees and didn't have time. I'm really itching to go..maybe this weekend.

    1. It's hard to resist once the weather starts being nice. Hope you got all your trees taken care of though :)

    2. Almost all of them..there's a little bit more on our property that we need to trim, but that will be a fall project (next time the village comes around picking up branches). We also did my MIL's trees (she lives only 3 houses down). It was a busy weekend! :D

  6. Yep, a needlework stand.

    Church sales are the best, when you can find them, they price low and give stuff away.

  7. I'm always hearing about church rummage sales. We never have them where I live, which is ironic since I live in the Bible Belt. Awesome free find. I just found your blog through Grandma's Hoard. I'm adding you to my follow list. Hope you check mine out too. https://vintagestuffnsuch.blogspot.com

    1. I've made it a weekly thing to check the local newspaper and craigslist. Ours post there. Also they often put up signs during the week before but I usually forget a sign a block after I pass it.
