Hidden treasures found at rummage sale

There’s nothing that can’t be found at a garage sale, according to Winfield resident Carol Dinelli.

“You just have to wait,” she said.

Dinelli was one of several rummage sale-goers who visited the annual All Church Garage Sale this morning at First United Methodist Church, 424 Forest Ave., Glen Ellyn.

The sale runs until 7 p.m. today and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

At garage sales in the past, Dinelli’s found a pontoon boat, a small cement mixer, a chain saw and new dog crates.

Bob McKeating, of Wheaton, also attended the sale this morning, where he found a bicycle and golf pull-cart.

Others who attended the event, such as Linda Novak, of Glen Ellyn, said she frequents garage sales and has found unique items, including a Victorian bedspread.

“It was a gorgeous Victorian bedspread with roses on it. It was probably never used and I bought it for $5,” she said.
