Sweet Salvage Pre-Show Party!

 Wednesday evening my hubby and I were invited to attend Sweet Salvage's first ever preview party. It was a wonderful event and perfect for anyone who wishes they could see the magic before it is disturbed by avid shoppers. :) No shopping that night, but lots of eye candy!!!
 There was a lovely buffet catered by Postino's

And everyone had a lovely time mingling. I met Dawn from Bohemian Valhalla and Pamela from Free Vintage Digital Stamps. Both women were so sweet and charming, I was really bummed I didn't think to get a pic of us. (If you want to see all the really creepy Halloween vignettes from the evening,  go check out Dawns blog. She did an excellent post about the event. )

Fall was definitely in the air at "The Wicked Faire"!! (even though it was still 105 degrees) LOL.

 I fell in love with this pair of stained glass windows!

 They had a wonderful selection of silver trays this month of all different sizes

  How cute would these be in an entry way???

 For those who love Halloween, there were lots of wonderful displays.

 Those are all crows hanging from the ceiling!!

This display in the men's bathroom caused quite a buzz!!!!

 There are always so many wonderful vignettes and goodies to look at, I always have to go around several times to see it all!

 I (heart) these. :)

I'm loving these colors!!!
Well, that's it. There was so much to see, and i hope if you get the chance you will pop on over there.
The event goes on for 2 more days, and I understand they bring new things in every night!

Your photos are amazing and make me wish I was there. I have been thinking about my Halloween display for this year. My husband hates all the decorations, but he knows how much I love them. I will be back to look at your photos when I start putting them up.

What a fun place to visit and it looks like you'd have to keep a few laps to see it all. Enjoyed seeing your adventure out. That's my kind of place.

Warm regards,

That must have been so hard to look but don't touch! LOL I love the baskets with the numbers... what came to mind when you mentioned "in the hallway" was a basket for Thing 1, Thing 2 and Thing 3! And the large doll with the boufant hairdo, shades and bra?? Cracked me up!!!
