A Fabulous Time Was Had...Nellie's Barn Sale!

We had such a great sale last Friday & Saturday at Nellies Barn Sale!  We had all kinds of excited guests all lined up waiting to come in when we opened on Friday.  It was so exciting!  In spite of the sudden rain storm Saturday morning, we still had guests running from tent to tent in the pouring rain to find some unique vintage treasures.  I was super excited because I found a unique vintage mirror for my Lillyan Lou display!  Of course I came home with a few purchases by the end of the sale and my Mom ordered a fabulous Nautical Flag made by Kim at Serendipity Refined (there is a picture of the flag below).  In all, it was a great time as always and I look forward to our Fall sales at Nellies & the 2nd Vintage Market being held in Roscoe.

Treasures every which way!
Meet Doris, Ann's newest addition!

Lots of new accessories from my shop Lillyan Lou.

Lots of handmade decor from Serendipity Refined.

Lots of vintage chic finds from Counting Your Blessings.

Twigs & Twine

While taking part in The Vintage Market this past Spring, I met Nancy LaPointe, owner of Second Hand Rose in Poplar Grove.  She had asked me to be a part of her newest shop Twigs & Twine and I couldn't have been more thrilled to be a part of this new opportunity.  The shop is full of treasures...old and new.  3 ladies that were part of The Vintage Market and are full of creative ideas, Ann of Nellie's Barn Sale , Polly of Counting Your Blessings, & Kim of Serendipity  have all set up their unique finds in the shop also.  To find Twigs & Twine, take Rt. 173 east to Capron (next town after Poplar Grove)'s in the old Capron Bank at 4th Street on the right.
