My First Sale at a New Place!



Well if you've been wondering what I've been up to lately and haven't been around much, here's the scoop!    Starting this month, I am a dealer at Second Hand Rose in Buffalo, MN.  No, I haven't quit my other places, just adding to my already busy schedule.  I know I must be crazy!  But so far I love being at Rose's.  The gals there (oops, and one guy) have really welcomed me with open arms.  I think I'll really fit in! 

If you are not familiar with Second Hand Rose, it was started by Rose Darden, and was the first occasional sale in Minnesota.  She was instrumental in started the big trend here, so I am so honored to be a part of this.

And we have been oh so busy trying to get the shop ready for the sale this week.  People have been in there all hours of the day, painting, and primping, embellishing and vignetting.  I think it's really looking great and very festive.  This month is the big kick-off to the holiday season, so everything is looking Christmas.  It was hard getting into the Christmas spirit, but once I started, I just ran with it.  And I think everything really came together.  Let me know what you think. 

Second Hand Rose is located at 609 Soo Lane, Buffalo, MN, 763-684-0124 or 763-355-9955 (Rose).  Their sales are held the first Thursday of the Month thru Sunday and their hours are Thursday thru Saturday, 9-6, and Sunday 10-5. 

Here are a few pictures of my booth.

I love the unique old fan. I love how it has some Christmas spirit to it. That fan is quite interesting and probably rare.
