Finally!!!!

We finally came up with a date that worked for all of us here. March 21st from 10 to 1pm is the date for this years charity garage sale. We've been busy here in the studio getting new spring stuff out to the shops and now we are all getting excited about the sale. We've been making some really funny one of tote bags and found some cotton eyelet fabric for PJs. We just got a new till in and we are busy training our selves to use it properly so we can speed up the line. We are look forward to seeing you at the sale!

ok - in hopes of winning an early invite - I'm blogging again about missing the garage sale for my Dad's 90th. Not that I don't want to celebrate it or have him still be around but it's a tough call - head to head with the lily garage sale...i haven't missed one in 5 years!

So - I'm curious what the decision is as to where the proceeds of the garage sale are going? Thanks!

Robyn said...

Can't wait! So excited to have a shopping day without the kids!

I live in Vancouver and had not realized the amazingness that is the garage sale - I suppose a ferry ride is a small sacrifice to make for something as rad as Annie Oakley printed scarves.

I am so excited! It was complete madness last year, but so worth it because of all the wonderful finds!! I can't wait to see what you guys have this year!

Steph said...

Sorry to see that so many bloggers can't make it to the sale :( But I suppose that's fewer people who may be in front of me in line. I'm counting the days!

Just a reminder to all ladies to wear cute panties...I've heard that people come from miles around to watch the changing frenzy in the streets!

Becky said...

I can't wait! My sister and I have been coming for years....watching the crowds get bigger and the line longer and longer to get in.

I have my fingers crossed for the VIP evening!

Thanks for the chance.

My wife and I are looking forward to coming over from the mainland for the sale.

The VIP evening would be pretty excellent :)!

Diana said...

Oh Smoking Lily how I love your style, and what a better 30th birthday present from my favourite little store on Johnson than a VIP evening on my actual birthday. My fingers are crossed!!
