spring shopping

Hi there friends!

It’s been a while, huh? It was a long, long, long, long, long (did I mention LONG) winter. I was hibernating. πŸ˜‰

I’m back now and working on some projects that I can’t wait to share.

In the meantime…here are some upcoming events that you local readers are NOT going to want to miss!

First of all, my friend Carol @ Redeemed VintageΒ is having one of her fabulous sales this weekend.


For more preview pics click here. The sale is this Friday, April 26th from noon-6 and Saturday, April 27th from 10-3.

This event is by invitation only, so to receive your invite…just email Carol: caroldegraeve@aol.com. Tell her I sent you! And if you come to the sale on Friday, please say hello…my mom and I will be working the checkout! πŸ™‚

Next up…my friend Karrin @ Steeplechase Antiques is hosting an estate sale in Highland Park.Β The sale is Monday, May 29, appointment only 9:00 until ? and Tuesday, April 30th 10-2 – no appointment necessary.


For more preview photos, go to steeplechaseantiques.com (upper left corner). The address in Highland Park will be posted on the website later in the week.

That’s all for now.

Thanks for sticking with me!

    Thank goodness you are okay. Since I wasn’t receiving emails, I checked your blog daily in case something was wrong with the computer. Missed you and Riley. Welcome back!
    Wished I lived locally, I would attend them all.

    Hi Susan!

    It was so nice meeting you and your sweet mom!

    What a sale! That was too much fun. I will not miss
    another one of Carol’s awesome sales — ever!

    Having a really hard time trying to decide what
    to keep and what to sell.


    Hope to see you again soon.
    Let me know if you head over to go antiquing in
    Highwood. It’s a great destination for treasure hunting —
    several shops in the area and many great lunch spot.

    Keep in touch!
