Thing Of The Past ~ Peek Into May's Shopping Cart

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 May's opening. You can click on the photos to see them larger.
If you could put something in it--it sold in May! This little green dresser with glass knobs sold for $95.00 and was just the ticket for its now new owner! The wood red chest of drawers next to it was priced at $58.00 and had FIFTEEN flat little drawers that scrapbookers and hobbyists crave for storage!
The curvy white dresser sold for $130.00, but its green pal with mirror is still available! I can easily imagine either one in a cottage-style home.

This tall & narrow dresser was out the door first thing on Friday morning. Probably was bought by someone who saw it Thursday night and couldn't stop thinking about it! These babies are getting harder and harder for us to find, and priced at $85.00 they go quick!!! The unique little yellow bin next to the rolling cart is being pressed into service at its new home too.

Yet another dresser (what were all you folks keeping your socks in before last month's sale?)! This elegant beauty with a fine-line crackle finish and ornate brass handles sold at $165.00.

We've found that if we group our mirrors in the new area (dubbed "hall of mirrors" by Roomies in the know) our customers really take notice of their stand-alone beauty as art and they just fly off the walls!
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 June sale (June 11, 12, 13 & 14) listed here! We'll have a ton of garden art and accessories, as our theme for June is "Home & Garden Tour". (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.)
