**BeSt FIRST DAY** ~ Selling ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Style...

Today was actually MY FIRST FULL DAY adjusting to "jobless in Cedarburg"...  AND what a Great Day It Was!*!*!  My ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! -  NOW, FULL-TIME BUSINESS, really took off!!!  I had numerous follow-up emails to "see" if this and that was still available from Saturday's Show in Germantown. Some ladies made an appointment to "shop-the-garage"... & had an inquiry of a ChaNdeLier...  OMG!!!  ~ Off to an AwEsoMe Start I'd say!!!  Thank Goodness!*!*!

  If you're looking for a particular item ~ just let me know... I might just have that "PeRfeCt ViNtaGe Find" you're looking for!*!*!  A Lady who Shopped-My-Booth in Germantown on Saturday did just that - & I had Just The Perfect Shabby Item she had been looking for...
(contact info on sidebar)


SHaBBy-Painted & slightly distressed...  Awesome bevel with time-worn patina... Nancy loved it!*!*!


*~*~*~* Just Fab *~*~*~*

I sooo enjoyed my "First Day"...  I got up early... baked cranberry-apple muffins... worked in the garage (I so do need to get organized)... & even had time for coffee with my Dearest Friend, Lin...  So Far - So Good...

  2. I'm so glad you had such a great day. I love all of my purchases but I worked today so I haven't had a chance to play with that wonderful door with the metal insert I purchased on Saturday. I can't wait to show you my first plan. I want to add more unique chippy shabby items to that huge family room. Keep your eyes open. Thanks for your kind words on yesterday's post.

  9. You really should consider doing the Junk Bonanza in the cities next year if you can get in. The sales there are unbelievable from what all the vendors I know tell me. I just got back from this years and it was so much fun. You always have the best stuff!

  15. I think I'm hearing a little Mary Tyler Moore theme music in the background, "you're going to make it after all!"
    That chair reflected in the mirror is gorgeous, btw.
    Best wishes,
    Susanne.
