Lutheran fall rummage sale

FTLComm - Tisdale - Friday, September 25, 2009

Household goods, clothing and a large amount of tableware make up the main items available at this year's Lutheran fall rummage sale.

There were some fresh vegetables available yesterday but by afternoon today a single vegetable marrow was all that was left.

This sale, both spring and fall has always got a really interesting library collection available often including rare books and this year was no exception with several remarkable art book.

Despite the items for sale the weather and the open doors were the real story.


When IBM introduced the Selectric ball type typewriter in the summer of 1961 it was considered something of a miracle and sold for more than a thousand dollars. This small carriage version likely spent most of its life in a school room teaching high schoolers how to type but today it sits on the floor with a price tag of $2.00.

I did not show you the dishes and glassware at this sale but the quality is excellent and some things are really hard to find including the water distiller in the centre of the picture below.
