Girls day out....

...so today, Theresa, Philippa and I went to "Cashiers" to check out the cottages that we'll be setting up in for the after Thanksgiving weekend. Each little cottage houses one artist, but some of the artists have gone back to Florida for the winter. So, of the few cottages that were vacated, we'll get to sell our wares in them for the Thanksgiving weekend. I hope we get a good turn out ~ the cottages are adorable! If you look straight up those steps, that's the cottage I'll be in! So, if you are around after Thanksgiving, come by and see me ~ I'll be there Friday and Saturday!Since it was a rainy, dreary day, we decided to make the most of it ~ we had lunch at a cute little cafe' and then headed over to check out what's known as one of the "biggest consignment shops" in western North Carolina! We couldn't wait to see what kind of goodies we could find!! And boy, did we find some treats.......like this vintage yellow bathrobe that was super soft & matched that cute little pink purse perfectly!And these hideous green shoes that we $76!! SEVENTY-SIX DOLLARS!!! Why, why??
But ~ we found some great deals, too! Like Philippa's hat!this gorgeous suede coat that fit Theresa like a glove!but the best find were these awesome sweaters! There were three of them in all ~ so we each got one ~ mine is brown. They are just so snugglie!!And now it's almost time for the CMA awards {which I love to watch, even though I don't care that much for country music} ~ but the show is always awesome! Before I run off though ~ my little "Bird Girl Journey" necklace will be the "freebie" for Monday's giveaway!! All you have to do is comment on this post and share with us your favorite "thrift store" find!!! Mine are my eel skin cowboy boots that I paid $2.99 for @ Goodwill a few years ago ~ I still haven't topped that bargain! I love bargain shopping ~ and you can never call me:Good luck in the drawing on Monday! Ozzy will be picking the winner!!

♥ & peace always ~ Kathy

And so a quote and a tribute to all the veterans out there that died for our freedom:

  1. Have fun selling your art after Thanksgiving. Those cabins are adorable.

    I have a Christian Dior gown from Sak's (both labels still perfectly attached) from Hello Betty! in Pittsburgh for $45. It's soooo pretty.

  2. Oh, how I wish I lived closer!
    One of my favorite thrift store finds is a turquoise necklace...very simple, just a chunk of turquoise on a leather cord. Also a gorgeous old sweater with great detailing that unfortunately the moths loved too.

  3. OMG Kathy - my package came today - I can't believe I won! YEAY - you are the best - I love them! You know I'm a huge fan.
    I've been without the internet for 5 days (my router died) and I just got back last night and then my package - what a treat! Thank you!

    Looks like a fun time too - I LOVE Thrift shops - some excellent finds to be sure. Wish I could shop with you. Have fun and thank you Kathy!

  4. Ya'll are awesome! Congrats, Jen!! Ozzy picked #2 :) You are certainly one deserving of a "Bird Girl Journey"
