Opening Day at Sweet Salvage on 7th

Have you heard about Sweet Salvage??? Well... you are about to! For the longest time I have been so envious of all you girls who have fabulous occasional sales near you. Well Phoenix girls...Now we have one too!! Sweet Salvage on 7th ave. just opened her doors today for the very first time (They will be open tomorrow and all weekend) and I was giddy the moment I walked in the door.  The girls allowed me and my camera in a half hour early so I could show you all the amazing vignettes and wonderful items they have for sale this weekend. And let me tell you it was a good thing I was there early because the place was packed from the moment the doors opened!! I didn't get to do any pre-shopping but I did capture some great shots before the crowd came in, so sit back and enjoy the beauty of Sweet Salvage.









 This vignette was gorgeous in person. The wall behind the bed was covered with a curtain of lace table cloths.
 The coolest part was how they made them... They are two attached together by cutting into the tablecloth and tying the two cloths together.  Fabulous!!



 This is the bathroom. Don't you just love that skirt made from burlap??



 This is the front desk were you check out. Cool huh?




 I found some wonderful goodies and was very impressed with the prices. I will share what I bought with you in another post.
However I will give you a little hint... One of the things I purchased is in this photo.  :)
If you live in the Phoenix area, I urge you to go check it out. The skills that these girls have are amazing and I will be visiting every month to see what new treasures they have for us!

Karen...7th ave and what? Are they only open on certain days??

Carol said...

I live here, so I can check it out sometime! Sweet.

misteejay said...

Gosh what a super find.

I wish there were more places like that here but they tend to be few & far between. Then again, perhaps it's a good thing there aren't many otherwise I'd be completely skint.

I have been watching this shop waiting. Now I will go see, it is right down the street from me. 7th Ave is really starting to become a very interesting fun place.

Romeo said...

WaaAAaahhhHH! I wanna go! Okay, you have no reason anymore to whine, so let me take your place lol There is NOTHING like that around here! Agree with a previous comment that perhaps it's best, but omgosh I have serious envy going on here. I would have wanted to buy probably 75% of what was there!!! This is just beyond fabulous. Gotta go. Serious pouting scheduled ;)

Ellie said...

Thanks for sharing. When I visit my beloved Las Vegas I will definitely head to Phoenix. I so much miss living in the west and its dreamy shopping - Florida does not have much to offer. What an inspiring post.

OMGosh, how come you're not notifying me ahead of time on these places missy? I actually had money this weekend until an hour ago when I spent it at Goodwill, Scrapbook Barn, Hobby Lobby and "Rod Works." You must keep us local gals in the loop before going online sweetie...wink wink...;o) Looks like you had a wonderful time, and I can't wait to see what you got.

Hugs,

Yes, wasn't it just amazing... I had to go back twice since I couldn't arrive early on the 1st day... but I too scored some amazing Treasures and will certainly look forward to each month's Event! It certainly was a Midsummer Night's Dream... Katie, Kim and the Shop Gals created pure Magic!!!
