October 14, 1998|By Pat Brodowski | Pat Brodowski,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

WHETHER YOU'RE looking for a period costume for Halloween or enjoy fashion history, the Vintage, Retro and Collectors Sale by North East Social Action Program is an event too good to miss.

The second annual sale will be held from noon to 8 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Fellowship Hall of St. John's United Methodist Church, 1205 Main St., on the corner of Route 30 and Gill Avenue.

NESAP operates a community clothing store from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The group relies on donations from the community and items are sold at low cost to benefit NESAP programs.

When a unique or unusual find is discovered among the donations, it's set aside for the annual retro sale.

On Friday, shoppers will find plenty of unique clothing and accessories, ranging from vintage clothes of grandmother's time and retro outfits from the '50s through the era of flower-power shirts.

Other collectibles, from baseball cards to music boxes, old buttons and porcelain figurines, will be offered.

The newest craft collectible, the Cry Baby, will be on sale. The Cry Baby is a toddler-sized stuffed figure, seen only from the back, with a posture that uncannily resembles a child crying.

Admission to the sale is a nonperishable food item for the NESAP pantry. NESAP is a consortium of volunteers from North Carroll churches that provides services to those in need. The services include paying fuel bills and supplying food, clothing and household items.

Information: 410-374-9099.

Sea Explorers display

Teen-agers who have an urge to learn sailing and navigation will want to visit the display case in the lobby of the North Carroll public library, Hanover Pike, Greenmount.

Sea Scout Ship 320 is a Boy Scout program that teaches nautical skills. The group, open to girls and boys ages 14 to 21, has on display its maps, manuals, awards and a full schedule for the months to come.

Ship 320 is the only Sea Explorer Scout Troop in Carroll County. The Scouts meet from 7 p.m. to 8: 30 p.m. Thursdays at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Manchester. The troop provides its own 21-foot sailboat and white sailor uniforms.

Information: 410-239-8987.

Women's Club sale

Members of the Women's Club of Hampstead will sell homemade baked goods Oct. 24 in front of Bob's Variety Store on Main Street, Hampstead.
