big sale

I am so excited about November!!  The Nester and I have two fun and exciting weekends that we would like to share with you!      Nester and I are cleaning out our homes, our closets, our garages, our offices, and having a BIG SALE.   The Sale will have tons of home stuff, tons of clothes, jewelry, art work, home stuff, furniture, books, and did I mention home stuff!!! It’s nicer than a yard sale but not as new as retail.  You do not want to miss this!  I went over to Nester’s house last week and let’s just say it was complete and total torture to leave without begging her to let me buy everything right then.  That would kinda defeat the point of me getting rid of everything in my house!!  The best part about the Big Sale is that a portion of the sales will go to Compassion.  So feel good about getting some of that Christmas shopping done for loved ones or yourself, while supporting a good cause.

When:  Saturday November 17th  11:00am to 3:00pm

Where:  Wynfield Forest Clubhouse, 15722 Wynfield Creek Parkway Huntersville, NC  28078

Here is a very small sampling of some of the things I will be selling.  Check out The Nester’s site to see some of her sale items!

Lots of fun, unique, one of a kind, items!

Yes it pains me to get rid of this.  It will only go to someone who will ride it everyday, love it and take care of it.

big sale with the nester

November 10,  The Nester and I will be at the 3rd annual Marketplace put on by The Kilgoris Project for Kenya.

Marketplace is an annual fundraiser where local and international artisans gather to promote their work while supporting a worthy cause. All proceeds from Marketplace events help fund The Kilgoris Project, an organization that educates, feeds, and provides medical care for hundreds of Maasai children in rural Kenya. (from the website)

Marketplace is a handmade marketplace featuring vendors and artist who sell everything handmade.  I will be there selling my Button Bird Designs goodies!  Come on out and support artists, buy handmade for Christmas, and support a worthy cause.

Will I see you there!?!

P.S.  If you have a second will you like Button Bird Designs on Face Book!?  Right over there top right?  If you are interested you can also sign up to receive these blog posts by email!

Thank you!  xoxoxo Angela

    Is the gold box a jewelry box?? The vintage suitcases are awesome… I have several in my 4 year old’s room that house dress up clothes & Barbies. I am going to try to come by your sale before Davidson football kicks off that Saturday. :)

      Hey Sara!

    How much for the bag in picture two and will you ship if I pay? Also, what size is the red leather coat?! I’m in Virginia and would drive down, but can’t this time. :((

    • angela October 22, 2012 at 7:21 pm #

      Hi Janine!!!
      Hope that thought!!!! Nester and I may put a few things on ebay so out of towners can get some stuff too! I will let you know if the bag and red leather coat are going to be on ebay. If not I could probably go ahead and sell it to you! What are you thinking price wise!?!?;)
      lots of love

  6. brittney October 22, 2012 at 6:54 pm #

    I LOVE the suitcases, but NC is just too far away :( not to mention an entire time zone.

    • angela October 22, 2012 at 7:14 pm #

      Dang it Brittney!!! Maybe you could move!?

  7. Katie October 22, 2012 at 7:00 pm #

    oh, this very well might be my excuse to head to NC! Would be nice to meet you, explore Charlotte, and find a few things for our house :)

    • angela October 22, 2012 at 7:14 pm #

      Yes yes yes you should totally take a little trip to visit Charlotte! Nester’s site gives some touristy options!!
      Hope to see you Katie!

    That red leather coat is fabu! My husband and I are going to the BBQ festival in Lexington, otherwise I would make the trip down from Greensboro. I’m sure you will sell everything because ya’ll have some awesome items for sale. Great idea to donate part of it.

    • angela October 24, 2012 at 12:59 am #

      Thanks Anitra!!!
      I would hAve loved to met you! Sometime soon, Promise!?!?
      Have fun at the BBQ festival My favorite!

  9. Janet October 23, 2012 at 12:14 am #

    So many of my fave bloggers are southern, I feel misplaced, especially when snow and ice hit….and when you creative ladies have sales! I can tell the coat, which I’d snatch in a heart beat, wouldn’t fit this plus size gal, but what fun it would be to see you and the Nester, even if I bought nothing. Course the chance of that would be nill, LOL. If you don’t sell the necklace, or would like some CT exposure, get back to me? Enjoy, I’ll be thinking of all the fun you’ll be having supporting a great cause.

    • angela October 24, 2012 at 1:01 am #

      Thanks Janet!!
      We would love to have you down here in the south!!! You would fit right in! I’ve never been to CT! Let me know if u are excepting visitors in the spring!!!
      Lots of love

    Hi Angela, I just emailed you about your sale…will you let me know if you don’t receive it? I wasn’t sure if I should email or leave a comment. Thanks so much!

    Kristen :)

    • angela October 24, 2012 at 1:02 am #

      Hi Kristen!!!

    I wish I lived closer!!

    • angela October 24, 2012 at 1:03 am #

      Come on! How far away are you?!? :)

  12. Allyson M October 23, 2012 at 11:44 pm #

    Oh. my. goodness. I want to drive from VA down to NC!!! Is it strange that I feel like I know you? haha! It looks like you’re going to have so many goodies for sale! I feel like we’re always trying to purge in our house- I don’t know where it all comes from…? Well, maybe I do. :)

    • Allyson M October 23, 2012 at 11:52 pm #

      I’m trying to decide if 5 hours of driving is too far to drive for a “yard” sale. :) Boy, my husband would really think I’d lost my mind. … Just need to find a friend and turn it into a “girls weekend” and “oops! We found a great yard sale while we were gone!”

      • angela October 24, 2012 at 1:07 am #

        Oh and 5 hours is nottttt to far to drive! Road trip! Did u see on Nester’s blog about the big sale, she listed all sorts of things to do here in the charlotte area to turn it into a weekend! Grab a friend and come on down!

    • angela October 24, 2012 at 1:05 am #

      Ok Allyson!! We could know each other!! I am from Virginia! From Bristol Virginia and went to Radford! Ring any bells?!?
      Your long lost friend

  13. Kendra A. October 25, 2012 at 1:19 am #

    Angela. The bike. I’ve been looking for a bike. And blue is my favorite color. So The Nester knows me (I’m Emily’s friend and neighbor), so I’m totally legit and not crazy. AND I WANT THAT BIKE. I’ll set it a place at the dinner table. My husband and I (yes, my husband wants to come to the sale with me… good man) are planning on coming, and now I feel like I need to get there right at the start. If you tell me what you want for it and I agree to pay it or even shoot you a check or Paypal beforehand, can you just hold it for me? It would break my heart if traffic or my kids or something kept me from getting there in the beginning to getting my bike. I mean that bike. Your bike. Your beautiful, blue, looks-like-it’s-been-so-loved bike that wants to come live with me. I’ll keep checking the comments, but if you have time to respond and want to just email me, that’s great, too. Can’t wait to come to the sale. And ride my bike home back to Greensboro.

    • angela October 25, 2012 at 10:19 pm #

      😉 just sent you an email!

      • Kendra A. October 25, 2012 at 10:59 pm #

        Ugh. Am I the most annoying ever? No email. And despite what I said about not being crazy, I’ve been freakishly refreshing my browser for the last half hour. So yeah, just wanted to make sure the email was sent to the right place? My name doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue, so it tends to get misspelled. Just checking. Not crazy. Love the bike. Normal person. Etc.

        • angela October 25, 2012 at 11:14 pm #

          Ha! I forgot the .com!!!! Glad you emailed me back! I think it might be time for bed!!!!!
          lots of love

  14. Lyndsey November 3, 2012 at 12:58 am #

    Wow! This sounds awesome! I live in Huntersville and love both you and the Nester’s blogs. I’ll be there!

    • angela November 5, 2012 at 1:11 pm #

      Hi Lyndsey!
      Yeah so glad you are going to be able to make it! Looking forward to meeting you!

    […] could basically furnish a small house with the stuff that Angela and I will be getting rid of.  Here’s her post about some of the things she’s selling.  I want all of it already. But I’m not allowing myself to look too closely at what […]
