confessions of a shopaholic

I have for years talked myself into purchases (projects) thinking I would have time to get to them or I could make something with them. My sewing days seem to be behind me, and forget reupholstering things myself. Did you say that would look good painted or turned into a mirror.... Can you see where I am going with this post? I love to shop. I find some really cool treasures and yes I am attracted to the "potential" in many objects. For that reason the basement (2,000 sq. ft.) in the store is full of the aforementioned objects. Oh, and I can't forget my obsession with props either (many of which will be available for the first time). And there is the random orphan from the sales floor too. So it is with great pleasure that I invite each and every one of you to attend my first BASEMENT SALE in the hopes that you will relieve me of some of these treasures. * I hope the thought of it conjures up a Filene's Basement sale-like frenzy. See you next Friday and Saturday! Feel free to call the shop if you have any questions.

JULY 17 & 18
10:00 to 6:00

* special note: they are not all projects, a lot of the items are perfectly fit for use immediately

Woo! I'll be there!

And I'm the same way with buying things. I went through a "I want to make jewelry" phase, and never actually made any, but I have all the stuff to.

Michael and I would love to come, but it's Royal first birthday on the 17th, and his party is on the 18th. By the way his party is carnival themed inspired by your wonderful decorating at Adam and Halli's wedding. : )

If I were anywhere near you I would come by and empty out your basement! :)
I wish you would sell online...

I came across your blog, and your story is wonderful. I love your transformation on your home, and your story is full of beautiful treasures. I would hope to one day see the store if I could ever make it to Savannah. I am from Arizona. Lovely blog.
