Thing Of The Past ~ February's Shopping Cart Peek

Have you ever snuck a peek at what the person next to you in the check-out line has in their cart? What did they get? How much did they pay for it? And where did they find it because I want one too! It's a lot like that at the shop during the sale: people are always so curious as to what's been bought and is heading out the door. Well, I know it's not quite the same, but in the interest of quenching your curiosity, I thought I'd show you what were the most popular and fasted-selling items for last month's sale.

This gorgeous buffet with all the lovely curves was bought by one of our loyal customers that we see every month--sometimes she comes in more than once during the sale!

This dresser (with mirror) has keyholes, which are as cute as dimples! We sold lots of tables and vanities that could also be used as desks. One of the pieces that we waved goodbye to was going to be used as a laptop station. Lots of cottage white furniture, like the stately round glass-front corner cabinet, was going, going, gone! I think it's because people are ready for a little brightness this time of year.

But we had a few colorful things that were purchased, too, like the beet red dresser,

a cute drop-front with snazzy red handles, and a blue drop-leaf farm table that were all happily loaded up and carted to a new home. That green china cabinet behind the peach chairs (we still have the chairs!) was adopted by a young couple just starting to furnish their home together. There were lots of vintage linens, garden items (by forward-thinking customers yearning for Spring, perhaps?) and two vintage First Aid kits in tins, of all things!

So there's your peek. All done without any sidelong glances, squeaky-wheeled shopping carts or worrying about picking the slowest check-out line in the store. Maybe next month you'll see a picture of what YOU bought at the March sale (March 19, 20, 21 & 22) listed here! (You can also SIGN UP to get the monthly email newsletters so you'll be reminded of each sale and any monthly contests just before it happens.)
