We love the blog "Seattlish.com" -- and apparently they like us! "If you’ve ever been to a rummage sale this massive before, you know that it’s like, major league — and Lakeside is the all-star game. In terms of high-quality, gently-used goods, many from affluent households, it looks like the the Pismo Beach Disaster charity drive from Clueless times ten. The clothes are, of course, are plentiful, and often designer. Notably, though, the Lakeside Rummage Sale started me off on my Vintage Camera Problem when I found an original Instamatic in its original packaging with unused flash cubes for $5. Plus, you know, it’s good to support education, even for schools with tuition that costs more than a year at some colleges. They’re a good school that churns out smart kids — and 30% receive need-based financial aid to attend." Thanks, Seattlish! We like our sale, and our kids are pretty awesome, too.
