It's official, the Cottage Panache sale was a huge success! Even Mother Nature came through for us!
I wish I had some pics from outside, truth was, I was BUSY. I was a closer!! LOL I priced my stuff very reasonably, I didn't want to take it home. So in the end, all I had left were 3 chairs & 2 very sore feet. I did take some shots around the store after the rush, so you could see.
Maureen's store is so awesome, she has a great eye & an ecclectic style.
And great prices!
Finding a good home for some great pieces was the objective, but the bonus was hanging with old friends & meeting some new ones.
My dear friend & sometime junkin' partner, Pat of My Tattered Elegance, brought some friends & showed her support. She never leaves empty handed, & finds the best deals.
This adorable girl is Erica from Zunky Chic! The cutie next to her is her hubby. Erica is on the design team for Anthologies Connection. We've been trading comments forever, it was cool to finally see her in person!
Okay, anyone who knows me knows I have this pet peeve about bloggers photographing their feet! LOL This is the only picture I have of my dear friend Lori, from Katie's Rose Cottage that day. So here it is, my 1st ever blog foot shot! It's so bad you can't even see Lori's precious sandals.
Some Lonestar dealers, Penny & Tracy from 'The Shabby Chandelier' & Dot of 'Shabby Y' walked away with some chippy whites.
I had so much fun that day, thanks to some sweet friends.
Angela of I'm Like A Little Bird, try to stop by her cute blog & say hi! Alisa, the Queen of Pickers! ( You'll hear more about her later) Denise, from Grandma's Redbirds. We'll be seeing each other next month at Paper Cowgirls!! Yippee! Linda Kinnaird, jeweler extraordinaire! Can't wait for her class at Maureen's. And of course our hostess, Maureen! Girl, I thought I had energy. Don't know how you do it, but thanks! It was great.
Now, onto the stuff! I must confess, I do these events to sell my finds & make money, but..........I never come home empty handed. It's like a big trade fest.
I told you about Alisa earlier. Well, this girl is the Picker of all time! I met her at Maureen's last sale & bought some awesome things, you can see them here. She's got my 'style' & brought some goodies this time that made me break out in a sweat!
This crazy girl had a galvinized bowl filled with birds nests in ziplock bags! Look at this one, it is the COOLEST nest I've ever seen. There's a dang book in it. Yes, those are little eggs too.
She saw the box I did for Julia & brought me this one. Oooh, I can't wait to embellish it!
All kinds of rusty hinges & junk.
Bits & pieces.
Can you see wings?
These buckles just made me drool. They are so dingy, the cloth & leather has faded to the perfect creamy shade.
Numbers..... are there ever enough?
I'm crazy for this little rusty leather bobbin.
Well, believe it or not, there's even more. But I gotta feed the kids & get ready for the day, so you'll just have to imagine the rest. Surgery & sales have kept me away from the studio this week, but I'm about ready to list some new goodies in my shop. Stay tuned for updates, until then.....have a creative day!
