Sweet Salvage for me!!!!!

You know that feeling when you walk into a new shop and your heart starts pounding with excitement because you know you are going to find wonderful goodies??


Today was the day for Sweet Salvage's monthly occasional sale here in Phoenix. This has become a day I look forward to every month because the displays are always so inspiring and the merchandise is always fabulous. It's different every time I go! This time Christmas was definitely in the air!!!
 I don't know why, but I adore silver balls all gathered together in cool containers!

 Magnolia Pearl for the bohemian in all of us!

 I think a tree would be fabulous in the baby buggy!

 I wanted everything in this suitcase.

 Wouldn't that be nice????

 I loved the silver bells under this reindeer. 

 That suitcase almost went home with me.

 Spools of yarn and string are functional and beautiful!

 We should all do this a lot more.

 Fun little goodies were tucked away every where.

 I loved these shoes hanging in front of the mirror. Makes me wish I had been a ballerina when I was a child.

 That chair was fabulous in person!

 Wonderful ribbon that I can't believe I failed to take home with me!!! (and the box is really cool too.)

 There's that buggy again!!!

 Another great idea for a small tree holder.

 Love this...
 The skates where awesome and almost came home with me, when one of the girls showed me a child's size pair... those DID come home with me!!!

If you live in the Phoenix metropolitan area, and you love this kind of stuff, RUN to Sweet Salvage on 7th today, tomorrow or Saturday. It is sooo worth it!

Give me a day or two to play with my new goodies, and I'll show you what I bought!

Oh, my, so inspiring! I happen to have my toe shoes and little cowboy boots from my childhood over 60 years ago! I must incorporate them in this year's decorating for Christmas. Thank you for so many ideas...

And please have a Happy Thanksgiving!

totally awesome pics, Karen!!! I think my favorite was the peace on earth, but loved all of it.

Marilou of Lulu's Lovlies and Heartful Creations said...

Love those skates Karen but better yet I sooo- love the buggy, and yes a tree would look fab, I could fill it with other great stuff the rest of the year and never pack it away! My favorite by far! I can't wait to see the rest of your goodies, Happy Thanksgiving sweetie! Love you, Marilou

THIS is what "her" heaven would look like. "She" says though that "she" would rather visit it now than when dead. I get that....where WOULD "she" put all that stuff?!?! Clouds certainly wouldn't be able to hold it all. Yes, "she" loves it ALL!!! Me? Well give me a couple of turkey drumstick, big fat ones and a pillow.....THAT would be heavenly ;)

Thanks for sharing!!!

Purrs!

Shannon said...

Wow! How gorgeous is this shop! I've been reading your blog for a while, but just started "officially" following you.

Bohemian said...

Sounds like you too scored some great Treasures at the Event and I'm Loving your Photos of it all and the beautiful way you frame them.

I had to go back for seconds on Saturday for the things I 'failed' to bring home on day #1... thankfully not all of them had been snagged by someone who wasn't so hesitant! *winks* Those Russian Ballerina Slippers were awesome, I almost bought a pair... but needed to focus on Christmas Decor so alas, they had to stay behind.
