All purchase orders made pursuant to the provisions of this section for such brick or building tile or furniture shall contain an affidavit stating that the brick or building tile shall not be used for purposes other than for the building of churches, or that the furniture shall not be used for any purpose other than church purposes. If said state departments, institutions, agencies, or nonprofit charitable agencies do not buy or contract to buy in advance of the season for which said wares or goods are made, and make a satisfactory guarantee to the Office of Management and Enterprise Services for fulfillment of their contract to purchase all the output, the state may then sell in open market any such goods or wares not generally manufactured in this state.
