Austin City Wide Garage Sale

I took off to Austin this past Saturday mainly to accomplish my Christmas shopping; but partly to visit the City Wide Garage Sale! I had attended once before and really enjoyed perusing the booths in search of treasures.

I started my day off with my warm drink of choice, a White Chocolate Peppermint Mocha! See, it even says we’re best friends!

I have a few pics to share that I snapped inside the Palmer Event Center where City Wide is held. I’ll apologize beforehand for the snapshots-a photographer, I am not.

Booths filled with every imaginable treasure as far as the eye can see!

Several vendors had their shimmery, silver trees up. Lots of vintage Christmas d├ęcor and ornaments were to be found.

I met Theresa from Garden Antqs Vintage. She is just as nice and sweet as everyone out here in blog world says she is! Her booth was filled with wonderful pieces in shades of cream, white and silver. How fun! This in particular caught my eye-She’s hung up some vintage gloves along with some ornaments. Very cute.

I spied a few things from Le French Laundry that were absolutely adorable. Aren’t her tags lovely?

Love the crown. It came in three different sizes.

Those were all the photos I took at the sale. There’s always so much to see!

I ended up coming home with a small, cream colored quilt to use on our couch in the office and a couple of cloth napkins. One vendor sells her linens by the pound!

This is what I consider my find of the day-a chippy and rusty, white, iron gate piece. I’m pretty sure I’m going to sell it, although I’m tempted to hang it on my wall over my desk.

I’ve completed my little projects I gave you a sneak peek of last week, so I’ll be sharing the finished products with you soon!

Have a great evening!
