There's a fantastic church sale coming up on 5/5 at a church just off Summit and Dale.  If you're driving on Summit toward downtown St. Paul, there's a sign on the right just past F. Scott Fitzgerald's childhood home.  Can't remember the name of the church...or the street it's on...  them there are poet's directions.   Cheesy

Wow, Catspajamas you really scored!  I'm jealous of your moccasins. 

I got this crazy huge quilted dress a few years ago, with a print of black and white rings, very mod.  With pockets!  I wear it whenever I can, which is about once a year when I make up some way to make it part of a costume party costume.

This is a double-wammy church sale weekend!  These are right down the street from one another.  I'm definitely going.  Will I see some of you Craftsters there?

There's a small but nice yard sale at Ashland & Fairview in St Paul - furniture, vintage glassware, silver, a big cool iron candlabra for $20, & misc household - lots of dishes. I passed it walking my dog this morning!

I used to live in Uptown for years (now I live just south of downtown in the Stevens area) and although I grew to detest the Uptown Art Fair there was a fringe benefit.  There is always a plethora of garage sales during this time.  This year's art fair runs from August 3 - 5. 

Here is a link with more information:

The St. Anthony Art Festival is tomorrow. It's not a flea market or garage sale but it's fun just the same.   Grin

I live right down the street form the Little Sisters of the Poor (near Fourpaugh's restaurant in St. Paul) and they're having their annual garage sale/silent auction as we speak.  I went last year and it wasn't spectacular, but it is an old folks home so you never know when a vintage treasure might turn up.  I'm heading over there soon, and will report back.
