This was early Friday morning at the clubhouse we rented for the sale.

The sale was awesome, I haven’t had that much fun in a while!   I’m already trying to talk Nester into doing another one in the spring.  Guess we’ll have to get our shopping on!!!  I loved meeting lots of new people, hanging out with dear friends, playing store, and most importantly we were able to raise $500.00 for Compassion International.

If you were able to come, what did you think?!?  Anything you would like to see more of?  More furniture, more art, more home stuff!?!  Let me know how we could improve the sale if we decide to do it again! wink wink!

    We came but unfortunately, the cute home stuff was snatched up by the first 20-30 people and since we were further back in line, we walked away empty handed :( Some people got great deals – they had armloads of awesome stuff! I was super jealous. I just think you have to be one of the first 20 or so to really have a chance. Word to the wise – get there way early!

    My only suggestion was about the venue… it was super small and cramped – maybe limit the people next time? As people leave, let others in? With the line to check out growing, it meant even less room to shop. It wasn’t too cold to stay outside for a bit longer if it meant getting to really see everything. :)

    I loved that y’all were taking cards and not just cash, and the live music was a nice addition!

    Wow. You girls are amazing. I love that you would sell so much of your own stuff just so you could give the money away to other people. Although the many women who came, came to buy your stuff, they also came to be inspired and indeed that happened. Thanks for the example you’re setting when it comes to how we feel about our “stuff”. It’s a lot of fun to have but it doesn’t have to control us. Love you Nester and Angela.
