Getting Ready for the 4 Friends Sale ...

Mmmm ....

Gotta love an old house .... on the National Historic Register and complete with original carriage house! And I LOVE the Carriage House at Historic Deepwood Estate. That's where my part of the 4 Friends Sale will be.

It's just yummy with big barn-size doors (on the front AND the back!)
They slid open wide to let carriages and cars drive in.
Big wide boards on the floor and the walls!

Such a nice setting for so many things ...
and a "Paris Flea Market"!

Today we were busy organizing vintage clothing, and purses; yummy original artwork by Laurie May (Laurie's Charming Designs); hats and gloves; cups and saucers; ironstone; silver (including a set of engraved sterling brushes); crystal; mercury glass; antique children's garments; a couple of quilts; some old sewing notions; bird cages and bird houses; silver fox coats (TWO!) miscellaneous antiques, collectibles and goodies too many to mention.



Well ... I forgot to take any pictures! But I promised to post everyday!
Pictures tomorrow, honest!

How can I make it up to you?

The gardens at Historic Deepwood Estate are in fine fettle.
(What does that REALLY mean? And can something be in poor fettle?)
As you walk from the parking lot (12th and Lee Streets) you can soak up the beauty!

BONUS #1: The gardens are always open to the public (except during a private event) and great for photos. Based on my strictly non-scientific observations, I believe 85% of all graduating seniors have their pictures taken on the grounds or on the porch at Deepwood. You can too!

As you go on your travels to the 4 Friends, enjoy the beauty of the season and snap a few pictures. (Maybe pose with your "finds" and post the pictures on your blog!)

The house (Deepwood) will be open for guided tours on Saturday,
but I know everyone will be busy having fun attending
all four locations of the 4 Friends Sale. No problem!

BONUS #2: All shoppers will receive a two-for-one coupon for admission and guided tour so you can return and see the inside of this 1894 Queen Anne style home.

Who doesn't appreciate good manners?
My mom taught me to always say "thank you"
and I want to thank shoppers for coming out to Sammy Girl's first "official" sale.

BONUS #3: Thank you gift bags to the first 20 shoppers on Saturday.

Well ... I'd better get to my to-do list and start putting those thank-you bags together!

Hugs! and have a happy, healthy day!
Sammy Girl
