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?!

There are garage sales, and then there are events! 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.
