Garage Sale as an Event

Ever since I read the book by Carolyne Roehm, “A Passion For Blue” it made me want to find out a little bit more about this amazing woman. 

In researching, I ran across an article in Veranda magazine about a garage/tag sale that she had. Now you must understand this was not a typical sale. 

This sale has been elevated to a level like no other garage/tag sale that I have ever seen. I know the summer months are full of garage sales on every weekend. Somehow I doubt that I will ever see one like this:
Over-sized vases full of sunflowers were brought in, and also sold at the end of the sale.
I have seen these at Homegoods and Cost Plus. I think I need these for my patio.

Everything you might need, or want for a 4th of July celebration!

I will take five of each please. Notice how all the picnic tables have been given a coat of white paint. Nothing but the best going on here.


Pretty amazing wouldn’t you say?!

I don’t know about you, but this puts my garage sales to shame. Oh to be able to attend such an event, now wouldn’t that be wonderful?

I know you can find amazing items at garage sales whether they are displayed this wonderfully or not. I just had to show you the way a professional does it. You can read the full article in Veranda here.
