Eau Claire (WQOW) – Those who have an eclectic taste in antiques visited the Foundry sale on Sunday morning. The Foundry is a one-stop-shop to get your fix on unique antiques. The Eau Claire community was invited to sift through 10 to 12 vendors who sold anything from books, albums, repurposed, vintage and non-vintage items.
Mary Freeberg, the owner of the Foundry, said there are not many antique stores in Eau Claire, and if people are collectors, there are not many locations to sell their antiques.
“I’ve been collecting for about 20 years,” said Freeberg. “A lot of my collection is done when I’ve done my winter traveling. Our collectors really like a sale like this so they can get their product out. And why people, I think, like our sale is we have a good variety of people in one spot so you only have to come here.”
This year marked the sixth Foundry sale. Sunday was the last day but, not to worry, there will be a seventh Freeberg said. The Foundry sale will happen again next year either at the end of September of the first of October.
