Good things come to those who wait! {no crying allowed!}

Wire baskets, french books, market totes...oh my!!
...add a french style apron, a petite crusty table, wall and
garden decor and you have a full blown sale addict
from Peacock Park warehouse sale.

I really hate
to be this cruel , but I just had to show you
what I brought home with me for White Wednesday.

{bearing in mind some items are white,
some are kinda white and some are
not white. It has always been hard for
me to play by the rules!}

Things that I purchased were all
frenchy style.
French totes, french market totes
and a french style apron are just a few
of my wonderful finds.

{this is the part where you are not allowed to cry}
*sniff* *sniff*
I purchased one tote for $4,
two more for $2 each and two
market totes for 3.50 and 4.00 each
apron...$6.00...oops...not $6 but $3.00!

If you like these I suggest you check back for a giveaway
I am having soon and one of these will be included.
Haven't figured out what else yet for sure so it
may be next week before I get it posted.

{pray my computer cooperates...it is running even
slower these days. It may need a trip to the doctor!}

Love the printing on these.

Market tote...this is a neat piece. It is sewn together at the top in the middle and then the ends are open on the top...a little zippered pouch is attached inside for your moolah.

2 frenchy wire baskets

{hey, I just realized all the backgrounds are white so I am playing by the rules after all...and just when I thought I was rocking the boat }

French style book boxes that I have been wanting, but didn't want to spend $40 or more on a set ...rather I couldn't spend $40 or more on a set! :)

I think I better start handing out more tissues to you because these were an awesome price too!

$2 - $6 each Most I bought were $2 and $3 each. I know you are all crying hysterically by now.

Amazing deals! I had to laugh though because when I got home I was looking at them closer and the one that says, Sincerity has the printing on the spine upside down. who knew...who cares! Still great for display.

Little pots $1 each...wire cage thingy $4 for base and $3 for top. They had all sizes of tops and you could pick what you wanted.

Neat flower caddy that I snatched for $5.00.

Have you used up a whole box of kleenex yet? I feel so bad for you...really I do!! Oh dear. Wish I could have bought something for everyone.

huge wire terrarium cover ...wait for it... wait...wait... okay $7.50 .

France flower bucket $7.

My darling daughter was with me as was my granddaughter and she surprised me with a set of these coasters. How thoughtful of her. She told me she got them for me as part of my Christmas gift, but she couldn't wait. She never has been able to wait. lol

This little caddy was $3.00. I had to get something that said Peacock Park on it.

I do have good news...I asked Gina if this would be an annual sale and she said yes so you can plan to attend next year!! {Fenton, Michigan} It is almost 3 hours north of us and 20 minutes away from our daughters home. I think you know what weekend we will be conveniently visiting her every year. :)

This is not all I bought , but it is all the photos I have ready so far. I did get the most amazing crusty petite bistro type table, but it was missing some screws, {somedays I think I am missing a few too , but we won't go there} so hubby is stopping after work to pick some up and finish assembling it for me. Maybe it will appear on next week for White Wednesday.

Sure wish I could have taken all of you with me.

Hope you enjoyed part of my goodies and

hopefully I can get the rest posted soon.

Linking up with Kathleen again for WW this week.

I know I am posting early, but I decided to post it while

my computer is cooperating with me. :)

The spacing issues on blogger is driving me nuts...how about you?

{now everyone wipe those tears and stay tuned for the giveaway!}

June said...

Hey you little rule breaker you!!! If this is breaking the rules then you can do it anytime, because I loved seeing your haul Sandi. Oh wait...I have to wipe my eyes. More than crying though, it is this awful shade of green I am turning that has me worried!
I would have come home with everything you showed us here. But then when I went to read your previous post and saw that praying angel..that made me bawl. I would love to have that in the garden.
sending hugs...

Great Blog, and have fun with your treasures !!

I had to come back and tell you how much I'm enjoying reading your older posts! Your style is adorable and all your pictures are great! It sounds like you have an antique booth somewhere in southern michigan!?? I'd love to see it! Again what a blessing it was for you to score all your goodies from Peacock Park! I'm so glad Gina thinks of us in the Detroit area.
Your new fan,

Oh, how I wish I had more kleenex to dry my eyes....you scored big time on all this great stuff! Wish I was closer so I could attend next year.


Julia - "Vintage with Laces" said...

Oh Sandi, I need more tissues, please! The totes and aprons are fantastic and the prizes are unbelievable. I also love the wire baskets and the books. Acutally I love everything you bought, sigh. Gina should open up a shop in Germany :-).
Hopefully your computer will be back to normal soon. It's annoying when it runs so slow.
Happy Wednesday!

Georgia Gibbons said...

confession: I am sooo jealous. I am happy and thankful for my own deals but you truly got some awesome stuff at out of this world prices. Oh well. Maybe next year I can be so blessed to get there earlier. Thanks for sharing your pictures. I know you must be so excited. I am happy for you. :)
