Save The Grange


Every little bit helps, and the Grange building needs extensive restorative work, so the members put together a community rummage sale, to raise some initial funds. I'm sure there will be more events to come. A musical slideshow of more images can be found here in my Overflow blog. I stole the Animoto presentation idea from Eric of Paris Daily Photo.

bonne idée le diaporama, et bonne idée aussi pour cette grange. Pourquoi sauver la grange ? elle est en péril , on va la détruire ?
Slideshow good idea, and also good idea for this barn. Why save the barn? it is in peril, we will destroy it?

This is an interesting thing to see. I have not been to a sale of any kind in years. And I used to enjoy looking around before the sale starts and always, remember, anything I wanted was the last thing to be auctioned off.

Thanks for the visit. Sorry you got to see the draft version of the post. I will try harder next time to remember what I am doing. LOL

Hilda said...

Ooh, I love glass! And I love sales! Hope you had fun. ;-)

Oh no, I love big yard sales - especially glassware and hats. I really enjoyed the montage on your overflow blog. I hope they save the Grange.

"Louis" hopes the building can be saved! Nice to see the community making the effort.

'Grange' est français for 'barn'.

Petrea's post about the Pasadena car show inspired THIS. :-)

Re your comment at Pour-la-Famille about the '65 Chevy wagon. Yes! Those wagons had a great expanse in the back - especially for us when we were kids; great places to let our young imaginations run free!

It is sad what happened to GM after the mid-sixties. They made the mistake of putting the control of the company in the hands of the financial staff, taking the power away from 'the car guys' and with that became GMs long, painful decline....

Yes, Olivier, the building of the farmer's organization, called "The Grange" is old and deteriorating. They want to repair it as soon as possible.

Abe, there were a lot of tables, but you could negotiate your price on the spot. No auction this time.

Jules and Hilda and KG, they are fun to explore. I have so many vases and clothes, I should have donated some to the cause, so I didn't buy anything but some cookies.

Louis, thanks for your visits, and especially the helpful translation. I would not have gotten that. ;^)

Did you buy anything?

Love the low, table-level angle of the photo.
