A Flash Sale for Charity Recap + a Big Thank You!

All photos in this post were taken by the talented Daniel Peter. First, a heartfelt thank you. After many sleepless nights, we, along with Nicole and Kyla, hosted our very first Flash Sale for Charity this past Saturday! But seriously, Scott and I were so giddy about the day, that we barely slept the night […]

Everything You Need to Know About Our Flash Sale for Charity!

I wish it wouldn’t be obnoxious to write this entire post in all CAPS and exclamations! That’s how excited I am. We are. Today, I’m breaking down all of the details on our Flash Sale for Charity!

A Decades’ Worth of Yard Sale Experience

If you’ve been around for awhile, you know that we love browsing a good yard sale. We’ve been known to alter our routes on family walks, make (safe and legal) U-turns on road trips, and plan our weekends around hitting up big neighborhood sales. And while perusing other people treasures is great, hosting our own […]

Four Flea Finds That Made Us Smile

This past weekend, we went to the last Elkhorn Flea Market of the season, also known as our first flea trip of the season. (That garden unit took everything out of us!) Elkhorn is one of our very favorites – worth the hour and a half drive from Chicago – and we’ve been enough times to beeline […]

A Few Good Finds + Shopping An Estate Sale

Last week, my friend Jess and I were walking to a neighborhood coffee shop when she spotted a teeny neon piece of paper tacked to the window on one of the prettiest storefronts in Logan Square. The space was home to Butterfat Studios, a unique tattoo shop that was so much more than body art, rather, it was […]

Vlog: Yard Sale Day (7 Years Strong!)

[adthrive-in-post-video-player video-id=”ovs1qp8J” upload-date=”2018-05-11T17:33:24.000Z” name=”Yard Sale Day” description=”null”] Ah, summer. The freshly cut grass, the warm air, the every other day street festival… the yard sales! Scott spearheaded our first building-wide, multi family yard sale (yup, back in our original yellow brick home!) in 2009, and we’ve carried the tradition over to our new – and by new, you […]

And so over the last few weeks, we’ve been giving vlogging a go! We started with a […]

Three Things from the Warehouse, Take 2

Last December, we scored the infamous Milo chair at a big warehouse sale (by the way, we finally ordered fabric for the chair, and we veered completely off course; go figure!), and over the weekend, the sale was back! It was being held in the same warehouse, but it was even bigger – if that’s […]

Surprising Winter Elk

We picked up this giant elk photo alongside the hutch at The Brown Elephant, and although I was originally going to share it as a score earlier this week, I ultimately broke it into a separate post because 1) it’s not for the kitchen (we don’t think?) and 2) once I did a little Googling […]
