Just in time for a little Christmas, or birthday, or personal shopping, Bargain Chicks is having their warehouse sale in Greensboro, NC.
I heard about the sales but had never been until today, and I had great fun. My husband totally does not understand my love affair with all kinds of bags but happily chalks it up to a “girl thing”. But, I know my two sisters and the other women in my family get it and will be glad I came.
So many cute designs. They were so sweet to let me take pictures for the blog. Thanks Bargain Chicks.
These little bags were so cute I had to take a picture of them all.
Don’t worry, if you are in the area you have plenty of time to go yourself. The sale just started today.
Live in South Carolina? A sale is coming your way in November. You can check out the dates below for Greensboro, NC and Greenville, SC.
You can go to the Bargain Chicks Facebook page and see the hours they are open each day.
I just love a bargain, and although my plan was to only buy gifts, I did walk out with a darling new tennis bag. Gotta have a little style on the court. – Marianne
Shabby, rusty,chippy cottage charm is exactly what you will find at Spade and Broom. This delightful shop occupies most of the bottom floor of a charming cottage home surrounded by garden, yard, and pond. Just walking among the furnishing and curiosities on the property invites you to take pause, slow your pace, breath deeply and enjoy the browse.
The space is light and bright, and jam packed with vintage furniture brought to new life in a shabby chic style. Abundantly white, carefully distressed, and lovingly refinished. I met the shop owner Kristen who was so gracious and very willing to share about the process she uses to create her shabby,rusty, chippy cottage charm. Sprinkled here and there are a few color options other than white, like the little yellow side table above.
Among the furnishings are table linens, vintage clothing, mirrors, and accessories to complement this style. Stock is constantly changing. A preview is posted to the Spade & Broom Facebook page on Wednesday, those new things will show up in the store on Thursday. A bonus is that the prices will not disappoint.
We arrived on a Friday as the owner was bringing in some salvaged windows to fill in where items had been sold, apologizing that she felt the store always looked a little empty by Friday. I thought it looked pretty stocked, but if you are wanting first dibs of what you see on Wednesday, in the preview, you may want to hurry on over. It always makes me curious about what I may have missed.
Spade & Broom is located in Trinity NC. If you make your way there be sure let them know you saw them on the Living With Color Designs blog. When I walk among these charming repurposed pieces I can’t help but wonder about the previous owners, the life this piece has already had. Then I smile for the new possibilities for all this shabby, rustic, chippy cottage charm. – Marianne
