Sidewalk Sales Downtown!

My schedule has been crazy this past week!  I not only made that HUGE tote for a friend and the Republican party GRhea purse for another friend.  I also was ask to make a huge batch of chicken salad for another!  (I use to own a cafe') and just when I thought I was out for good, they pull me back in!!  LOL.  Anyway, then I worked at the store four days!  We had our annual sidewalk sale days Friday and Saturday.  I love them because all the shops put out great things at a huge discount.  I'm talking half priced or more!

Here are a few of my finds!

The spot on my patio where I love to sit in the late afternoons and read needed a little something else, so I picked up these paintings!  They are bright and cheery and are on metal, so they are perfect to be outside and cheer up my space!  I love them.

Isn't it too cute.  I also picked up a piece of ribbon for a new orange bow to put on my little wreath.  It is orange with multi colored dots all over it.  I just love it!  I gave $19 each for the paintings and $1.50 for the ribbon!  DEAL!

I actually found two, I just could not fit them both in the photo, so here is the other one on the other side of my back door...

and here is a close up of the first one...
Love them!
Then I found the cutest metal water can!  It looks new and old all at the same time.  I love the colors and it is a perfect addition to my patio!

He was $10!  He makes me smile.

Then I found the cutest unique item, and they had two!  They are slate tags by Vance Kitira.  You can write on them and put them on salad dressing, flavored olive oils or vinegars, wine decanters, or a name tag for a special gift!  I just love them and I'm not sure if I will be selfish and keep them all or give one package of them as a gift.  After all I got them for $5 each! 

and finally, I did splurge!!  For me anyway...  I could not resist this bottle of Caldrea Lavender Pine Laundry Detergent.  It usually retails for $18 and I got it for $7, which is still expensive I think for laundry detergent, but I decided that if I just used it for my undie things and maybe my sheets, that it would last for a long time!  so I bought it! and love it.  I used it yesterday for both things and it made me feel happy, so no buyers remorse here!


I had a great time visiting some of my favorite shops in Bardstown and we had two great selling days at our store too!

Until we meet again, I wanted to invite you to a virtual tour of our store.....  Bardstown is coming up in the world!

  5. I love all the orange. I really think it is one of my favorite new colors. It will take you from summer to fall. My daughter has lots in her room and it has been so fun to decorate with.
    Sounds like a good time. Sidewalk sales are the best. Never know what you will find.
