I do it again in a heartbeat for sure! And a little birdie told me that this might be happening again in November, so some of you who missed out better come!

I was really good and kept my restraint and resisted from trading or taking out my wallet, but oh there were so many goodies! I had a babysitter there after all. Ben was there to make sure we came home with an empty car and not a full one. Though, I did come away with two goodies from this lovely gal… something for the girls’ Christmas present and a dress for Soulie. Most smaller items sold, but at the end of the day after talking with Jeni and Danni, we have concluded that people come for smaller items and not really big pieces of furniture, so I still have my vintage industrial yellow factory cart, vintage french metal table, and old farm coffee table. If any of you are from socal and are still interested in any of these… just send me an email. Otherwise, I will try my hand on craigslist and if that doesn’t work, it’s going back to the sale in November.

Despite not coming home with an empty car (I did lighten the load significantly), the sale turned out great and I had so much fun meeting some of you!!! It honestly feels like meeting an old friend. Let’s skip the handshakes and go for the hug! I love blogging and have been blessed with all the great friendships I have made through it. Many thanks to those of you who gave your support in person, in purchase, or via the web! I so appreciate each of you. xoxo

    Thank you again for the barrel! It’s already in use in our home + we’ve gotten tons of compliments on it! 🙂

    Can’t wait to take my hubbs + the wee one to the sale in November!

    ps-this time I’ll bring cash money so Danni doesn’t have to take the payment thru her phone…haha.

    It was so nice to meet you & your fam. We had a nice time despite the heat and found some little treasures. I saw someone else asked about the yellow cart so I am not sure if they are already purchasing it but if not, I was curious how much you are asking for it. Thanks!

      hi kristin, i do have a couple inquiries but no one has officially told me yes, so it is available. i am selling it for $200, which is what i paid. yellow just isn’t my color and i would rather it go to a home that would love it because it is a really great piece!

  • Tina says:

    Did you sell your dollhouse pillow??

  • Jessica G. says:

    My parents live in LA, I am thinking I will need to visit them during that sale in November! I would have this time, but we are on vacation.

  • Chemeeka says:
