They Came... They Bought... ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! ViNtaGE S*A*L*E - Cedarburg, Wisconsin

This past Saturday was the "Kick-Off" start of this Season's Monthly ChiPPy!-SHaBBy!  S*A*L*E*S at our home - April through September - In Historic Cedarburg, Wisconsin...
(click on pics to enlarge details...)

SHaBBy ShoPPers were greeted with a Taste Of S*P*R*I*NG
 as they rounded the corner of the GaRaGe!*!*!



Waiting for the 8 am OpeNinG!*!*!
I was very pleased to "SEE" such a good number of **ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Die-Hard ShoPPers** braving the early morning 32 degree temperatures...  Customers came not only from the Wisconsin area - but Illinois & Michigan as well...



With weather concerns in APRIL,
  we always start the Selling Season **In-The-GaRaGe** 
During the "warm weather months" it evolves into
**RoadSide Tent S*A*L*E*S** 






















I always have a "Holding Area" for ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! ShoPPers
whose arms get Toooooo Full!*!*!



I can't THANK my ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! CHECK-OUT CREW Enough!!!
Sandy & Leta - I LOVE YOU!!!
I couldn't have done it without you Ladies - Thanks!!!









AFTER the mad rush...
I was soooo happy to actually be able to talk with some of my customers!!!
This group of ladies from Milwaukee ~ were JUST ADORABLE and
S*W*E*E*T as can be!*!*!  They all LoVed my SHaBBies - Especially Jo Anna!!! 
It was my pleasure to meet YOU!!! 



Kathy & Molly ARE-THE-BEST!*!*!
Do visit their SHOP **DISTRACTION**
 next time you're in Cedarburg







Is Brittany Adorable or What!*!*!
Even though she couldn't make it to the S*A*L*E till late in the day,
 SHE FOUND EXACTLY WHAT SHE WAS LOOKING FOR!!!

********************
 ~*~ A Big Hug & Thank YOU ~*~ 
To all of those who came out &
 ShoPPed-My-SHaBBies!*!*!

  3. I am so jealous--I used to live in Southern Wisconsin-Edgerton-and found your blog a few months before we moved to Texas. I never did get to one of your amazing sales then--but when we come back to visit this year I am going to try for sure! Everything looks so beautiful--and what is better than "Chippy Shabby"...

  17. I love your style and look of your shop. Do you always work from your garage or is this a one time deal? You have the greatest items. I would love to buy a piece from you. Do you ship? I live in California. I have a blog you can stop by and have a look. You are an inspiration. Thanks
