This weekend is the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Albany's fall rummage sale: clothing for adults and kids, holiday decorations, bed linens, towels, and table linens. Sale dates and times are Friday, Oct. 3 from 9 am to 6 pm and Saturday, Oct. 4 from 9 am to 3 pm.
It helps to do a little pre-game planning for this kind of sale. Here are a few things to keep in mind...
+ To make the most of a rummage sale, make sure you have time to, well, rummage a bit.
+ Always try stuff on, because even though the tag says size 8 the cut may be closer to a 6.
+ Look over seams, make sure all the buttons are there and snug, and that zippers work.
+ Make sure there are no stains or holes; stand in natural light if you can.
+ It's also a good idea to bring a friend who will give it to you straight about whether or not something works for you; there may not be a mirror around when you need one.
To get the best selection, you have to show up at the beginning of a rummage sale. But if you're looking negotiate deal, you might have a better chance at the end of the sale, since whatever isn't sold may end up being tossed.
