FLINT (WJRT) (1/5/17) A Flint congregation is preparing to move out of the building it has occupied for 60 years.
It's going to sell off all the things that have accumulated during that time.
Woodside Church is being sold to Mott Community College so a great deal of material is going to be sold. On Jan. 12, 13, 19 and 20 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. there will be a tag sale at the church.
"It's happening over two weekends because of the extent of what's here," said Tim Look, owner of Frozen in Time Treasures.
There's something interesting in every nook and cranny.
"We're still finding things that have been packed away for decades," said Look.
"It's always a delight to see what's buried and it's kind of an overwhelming feeling to see how much there is to liquidate, said Rev. Deborah Conrad, pastor of Woodside Church.
The kitchen is filled with items a restaurant owner might want or maybe another church.
"We've got sugar, creamers, we've got serving plates. Wooden bowls by the dozens," said Look.
The congregation at Woodside has been declining so it decided to move out an seek a smaller building.
"We're moving because were more devoted to our mission than our stuff," Conrad said.
If you're in need of pews or furniture, it's available at Woodside, which is next to the Mott Community College campus. Liquidation sales can be interesting.
"The curiosity brings people in. Of course they walk away with things at a fraction of the cost," Look said.
