Whether you’re a fan of American Pickers, a devotee of Antiques Roadshow, or just the kinds of person who loves to peruse thrift sales for spectacular, unexpected finds, you’ll find plenty to admire – and perhaps to bring home – at the latest Foundry Sale. Mark the dates and times on your calendar: Friday and Saturday, Sept. 22-23, from 9am to 5pm. Held in the historic Foundry building at 1239 Bellevue Ave. (overlooking history Banbury Place), 15 dealers and junk artists will be offering one-of-a-kind treasures. There will be a mix of furniture, industrial, antique, salvage, shabby chic, handcrafted goods, collectibles, art, and classy junk of all sorts. According to the Foundry Sale’s website, “These folks spend all year scouring the countryside for things they are sure will delight you! Some of our vendors are also salvage artists, come and see what they have made into fabulous decorator items.” Limited space is still available for vendors, so contact founder Mary Freeberg for more information at (715) 579-2334.
