New Location This Year !!!!

Yes, folks, it is time to move this little soiree to an better location.  Transforming
my house was great fun, but it's time for a little more room and parking.

The new location is the Carriage House at
Historic Deepwood Estate
at the corner of Mission and 12th Streets
here in Salem (Oregon - that is)!
Directions below.

Much more room to hoot and howl.  The ambiance is to die for!

Directions:  I-5 too exit 253, then west on Mission Street to stoplight at 12th Street.
Turn left onto 12th Street.  Go 1 block & turn right at Lee Street.
Free parking in Deepwood parking lot.

So mark you calendars, watch for sneak peeks and follow me on Facebook. M.

Recuperating

It has been a week since Barn House.  Wow.  What a day it was.  We were totally overwhelmed by the response.  We  - had - no - idea.  It was clear, really fast, that there were lots of customers who were buying lots of our treasures!  No time to chat, share a story, point out something special or precious.  Just wrap it and bag it and say many thanks!  It still seems surrreal.  Wonderful, but surreal.

We failed to get pictures of our hubbies that helpedus so much.  They toted, lugged, moved, sold, rang up, and ever so patiently, ran a ton of credit card transactions.   We would like to give them credit for setting up the area outside of the barn.  I think they did a great job!



Here are a few pics of our area inside the barn.  I am still amazed that we were able to cram so much into our area.  I think there were a few bets being made as to whether we would actually get it all in.  We did - somehow.  My pal Diane, works miracles.  Our things all blended together well.














Me with my favorite junkin' buddy and partner in crime.

It is always a group effort, so thank you to everyone who made this fabulous sale possible. 
It was an experience that I will always remember. M.
