We also had the assistance of Lisa Sommers from Sommers Breeze Antiques. Lisa is a vendor at Junk Bonanza so having her stop by to see what we had for inventory and confirm what we had come up with for our displays was a real treat. Thank you again Lisa!
|This was the display that greeted all of the customers as they walked in.
People kept asking if we were selling apples and where were the hayrides?!?!
|Pamm and me right before we opened.
(The sewing drawers on the tables behind us were eventually filled with beautiful, green, dried hydrangea)
|There was something for everyone at our sale!|
|Do you recognize the galvanized letter sorter on the table?
Yep, that’s the one I brought home from Junk Bonanza and it held all of the vintage flashcards in alphabetical order.
It was perfect!
|KD Cakes sold her yummy cupcakes all day and they went like “hotcakes”, well, cupcakes, I guess 🙂|
|I love this picture because you can see the people lining up to get in!
The hubby said approximately 300 people came through our sale on Saturday!
|Cheryl and me – Cheryl has been a follower of my blog for quite awhile and
left her kitchen renovation projects at home so she could come to the sale and meet me.
Thank you SO much for coming out, Cheryl. It was wonderful meeting you and chatting!
And then it was all over . . .
All of the shoppers had gone home and only a few pieces remained . . .
It truly was a remarkable day and successful in every way that it could have been – the weather was perfect, the set up went well, the shoppers were happy, Pamm and I worked well together, and we each left with less than what we came with. Success!
The other good news is is that we have two more vendors who want to join us if we decide to do it again. Can you believe it? How cool is that? I’m just blown away by all of this and, of course, we’re now considering doing it again in the Spring. It really was a fun day and I’m so grateful to all of you for your encouraging words leading up to the sale, and for your continued support of this journey. You guys are the best!!
By the way, while we were chatting, Cheryl said she was inspired by our kitchen and dining room to do her own kitchen. I told her if she had any questions along the way, that I’m more than happy to help. All she has to do is send me an email and I’ll help in any way that I can. And I mean that for ALL OF YOU. If you ever have any questions, I’m happy to help you. If I don’t know the answer, then I’ll try to help you find it. I don’t just want to talk at you all the time, I’d love to talk with you. Please don’t hesitate to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime and we’ll figure things out together!
Thank you for reading!
P.S. A big thank you to Pamm for accepting the invitation for the sale. I had such a great time with you on Saturday!! You were wonderful to work with and I look forward to maybe doing it again!
P.S.S. A big thank you to my sis-in-law for helping with various things that needed to be done to get ready for the big day. I couldn’t have done it without your selfless help!
