Wow. My tag sale was a great success,thanks to my Black-eyed Susan supporters!
The planning was both intense and very objective, as I sorted and culled every cupboard, storage room and living space. What can I say...I'm tired of the designs I've lived with for the past 10 years. I tell my clients 10 years is a good run! And so it was.
So many of my darling clients stopped by and while I am tired of the look of things, so many of them exclaimed their love for my cozy home. I took a few photos of the days events and several of my buyers sent me theirs! I'll share some of them with you just for the record.
I'm planning on following my progress with regular posts. Sneelock is anxious to get things started, as he hasn't much to sit on! (Oh.Dear.)
One of my first clients sent me this soon after arriving home with her treasure (pink tulips and books). Apparently her car fully approved!
|The dining room was filled to the brim with some of my collected plates, platters and butter pats! (I told you I was very objective in my offerings...)|
|This plate collection went to a favorite client and friend. The bedding was sold as a collection and the lamps went quickly too.|
|Master bedroom draperies...still available!|
|My bathroom is a collage of mirrors instead of a large or two singles. Valances-gone!|
|This vintage silk covered chair and ottoman went to a long time friend and Black-eyed Susan fan. Can I just say that I love it when my favorite things go home with friends?! Thanks, Anita.|
|Lisa and myself in the dining room. Lisa has been blogging for some time about her excitement leading up to my sale! She took home some of my favorites. *sigh*|
|The tiny chandelier was the only thing in this photo for sale....none of my brown transfereware!|
|Long time favorite floral...gone! It looks a bit bare, but I have a new vision.|
|I added this chandelier into the mix due to a special request for silver and crystal.|
|Dining room draperies and rug-bye bye!|
|My working vintage radio also left with a favorite friend....along with Sneelock's favorite chair!|
All in all, it was a successful though busy few days.
Now on to the new design project! I'll keep you posted, though I think I may be at the bottom on a long list of client projects....
