On Friday and Saturday, May 13 and 14, Farmland Christian Church, located at 212 N. Main Street in Farmland, will hold its annual thrift sale. The event will take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. This year marks the twenty-sixth year of the sale. Children’s and adult clothing, toys, books, glassware, kitchen utensils, linens and many other items were donated by church and community members for this sale. Sale items are overseen by Carolyn Norris and Jim Hitchcock.
The church will also sell some of Tammy Bousman’s famous homemade angel food cakes. The cakes are made with the recipe of Edith Williams, Bousman’s mother. After his mother’s death, Bousman decided to continue the tradition started by his mother, which many will remember from Williams’ Printing. Cakes will be sold individually.
Church members will also serve breakfast and lunch on both days. Breakfast will consist of sausage sauce and biscuits. Lunch options include sloppy joes, nachos, coney dogs, brownies, cookies, and homemade pies, including strawberry pie. Homemade pies and whole noodles will also be available. The kitchen will be supervised by Margrette Taylor.
The whole church helps with the event. All money earned will go into the church’s general fund to help with building maintenance and other expenses the church encounters to help the community. If anyone has questions or would like to donate items, they can call (765) 717-7000 for more information.
