City View Antiques will participating in a street sale next weekend, April 25th. A lot of the shops and stores on Industrial get the sidewalk loaded up with all sorts of bargains. We have set up in the past, but won't be this year...too many commitments. Richard is in City View and the above photo is of his space. I don't know if he will be a participant for those wanting to see him in person, but if not, the bargains to be had will make up for it! Mark that date on your day planner!
There is a great selection of antiques within the mall as well. Most or all of the dealers there will be offering discounts during the sidewalk sale. I know Abby will be working, so tell her I sent you!
Bright Star is an auction house in Sulphur Springs that is a cut above any auction I have ever been to...in fact, it is the only auction I WILL go to! The merchandise is just some of the best I have ever seen and the primitives are unbelievable. They will be having one this weekend on the 18th beginning at 8:00am for the barn and 10:00am for the catalogue. If you plan on attending, it is a good idea to call or e-mail ahead to try and reserve a seat. Be quick, they fill up fast. Otherwise you will be like me at the last one I attended. Cat Daddy and I stood in the back for 4 hours holding up various pieces of furniture! But it was so worth it! Now don't get me wrong...this is not a junk auction and be prepared to write a check, but the quality is just amazing. If you are wanting to step up your style a little bit, this is the place to start. Oh and the food!!! Pecan pie and chicken salad to die for.
If you are in the mood for a little more digging and a little less standing, then have I got the venue for you. Head on over to Cleburne for the semi-annual 25 mile Antique Alley yard sale. Talk about fun! Garage sales as far as the eye can drive! We go straight to Whipporwill Hill Farms for our main buying. Do y'all remember that wonderful ginormous movie reel we bought? Well, that's where we found it! If you click onto their site, you'll see a link that will take you to the post I did about our buying adventure there. It is set up as a market and you can find just about everything there. After you load up your truck, just start down the highway and pull off where you see a garage sale sign. It starts Friday April 17.
The Red Shed girls are also having their Saturday Sale on the 18th. You've seen the pictures, you've heard the talk, now hop into your trucks and head on over there for some beautiful finds! These girls go everywhere to find the best merchandise just for you. Why deny yourself the pleasure of purchasing something special for your home that is ready to just be put in place?
OK y'all, no excuses not to go shop. When I log on Monday morning I want to see photographs of all the great stuff you found and that's an order!
Oh, and if you are in the need of a little Bella fix, Jenn has done an update for y'all on her blog, The Apiary. Take a look at the new photos of our blessing from God!
