Researchers of "bake sale" may or might want to check one
of the American Dialect Society's earlier publications,
where they'll find this example that I believe is earlier
than what has yet been posted:

1917 Kalama (Washington) Bulletin, in Dialect Notes V (1919)
54 The teacher at the Snodgrass school will hold a bake sale
on Wednesday.
