A Fun Sale of Upcycled Treasures

This past weekend I joined several talented ladies from my town to hold a very fun sale.  We had upcycled treasures for the home: decor, furniture, functional art...  We also had upcycled bags and jewelry and a popular baker. 

As people perused the treasures, they enjoyed coffee and vintage records playing swing and jazz music.  It was a warm, sunny weekend, perfect for an afternoon shopping outdoors.  It was a fun time for all!

Everyone loved the feeding their "sweet tooth" with these beautiful and delicious cupcakes from Bittersweet Baking who also does cookies and cake.

Calusa Studio had her artisan jewelry which is simple, beautiful, and stylish with expert attention to detail and craftsmanship. She will soon be opening a shop on Etsy!

Charmed by Jessica, who hosted the sale, has fun designs and creative moveable jewelry.  She is very talented and also does this amazing art which was admired by all!

Vintage jewelry is always fun to look through and Northwest Nest provided some great treasures. 

A brand new Etsy shop to open within days is Potent Totables which will be full of upcycled bags - lined and unlined bags made from upcycled fabric, most of which is vintage.

And of course I was there with items from my shop ShabbyNChic - vintage, paper goods, and cottage style home decor.

A few of us also do large pieces, including Sarah of Honeybee Boutique, so we were able to have a wonderful variety of furniture at the sale - some of them were almost more art than furniture!

If you are in the area and you missed this one, I hope you can make it to the next sale.  If you are not in the area, I hope you enjoy the pictures and can at least imagine the fun!
