Annual Peacock Park Sale...I wish I could have taken you with me!

You know when you are looking forward to something so much that you can't eat,
can't sleep, can't clean or do dishes, can't drive, can't do anything right??

Okay...okay, I am getting a little really carried away here, but I have been hoping that
Gina from Peacock Park would have a sale this year and when June came and went
without one being announced I figured it was a no go...THEN...one day not too long
ago she announced it on facebook and her blog. Happy camper here! hee hee

I was there twice on Friday and once today...plenty of times to snap up some goodies
at awesome prices although I needed a truck because I LOVED the above piece and it
would not fit in my car. lol!

{Thursday was for wholesale customers only which I am not}


There were beautiful baskets and metal ware...


...chests with numbers on them. Who doesn't love numbers these days??


lots of assorted ribbon...

these trick or treat rolled bamboo mats ...

( I brought a few of these home with me}


burlap pillow covers...


A gorgeous chair and even more baskets...


everywhere you looked was another treasure just waiting to be found...I almost brought one of these
"flower container trees" home with me, but didn't know if it would fit in the car either.


Did you notice the basket on the left is made into a lamp??


More numbered items...


Another gorgeous angel! They had one of these last year also. I love it!


I fell in love with these rusty ,screen hats , but none made it home with me. I just
couldn't purchase all that I thought was neat or I would need another home
to put it all in and I also had to save some money to pay bills ya know!! lol.


I goofed here! I intended to get a couple of these today and didn't. Today was half off day so they
were 2.50 each. All the little fleur -de -lis were broken, but I could have replaced it with something
else. Oh well...another item I really didn't NEED. :)


loved all the gorgeous gray baskets no matter the size...


numbers, numbers, numbers...


I thought this clock was gorgeous!


This is the tent you saw when you drove in. The sale was inside the tent, along the side of the warehouse
and there were also some items inside the warehouse. It was a perfect day yesterday. Beautiful,
sunny weather. Today it rained all day long.


This is the sign you see as you are driving along the interstate. I have loved the sight of this place
before I even knew what it was. Years ago, my daughter happened upon it as it is only 15 minutes from
where she lives and she told me I would love it. That is when the warehouse was actually a retail location
and as soon as you stepped inside, you were transported to a most beautiful place in time. It was
breathtakingly gorgeous each and every time we visited.

It has since closed to the public and it is now her warehouse, but Gina started her annual sale last year
and have been fortunate enough to attend both years. If you live in Michigan it is well worth the trip!!
 Hope you enjoyed seeing the photos.  I will share what I purchased with you later. Happy Saturday!

{ I never told you WHY I was there twice on Friday did I? Well, it so happens that as we got
 closer to our destination, I asked hubby to remind me to put my camera around my neck so
 I could take photos for my blog. Well , he forgot and so did I! I didn't even remember until we
 were a few miles up the road to an antique store. So , after we ate lunch we drove back so I
could get some photos just for you! ha! We also had some time we needed to kill so it worked
out just fine. Also, on my second trip I scored some freebies and can't wait to transform them.}

How fun Sandi! I would have come home with a number of those baskets and I also love the clock! Makes me want to go and find a sale now too.

Oh Sandi! I'm so jealous! I talked to Gina while I was in Texas and told her I would love to come to the sale! But with just getting home from Texas and getting ready for another show in a week, I just didn't have time to come! Boo Who! And I don't leave home without my RV, I don't stay in Hotel's, its a long story!

Gina is such a sweet person! Glad you got some good stuff!

Hi Sandi, You're so lucky to be able to shop there. I love so many things you've shown, sigh. Thank you for getting the camera and taking us with you!

O, O, ohI Sandi,
I so miss out on the best shows, the area I live in forces me to have to travel a distance to shop anything this fabulous.
I hear you girl on that divided cabinet mail slot piece, painted in rustic grey, I just love it, and I would have had to have strapped it to my back fearing if I left it someone may resale it mistakably to someone else.
Great finds, and that rustic tin screen top hat would have had to have had one of those for myself.

Thank you for sharing, making me so jealous that I was not there.
Thank you for your beautiful visit to my place, your comments mean a lot to me.

Keep inspiring us with you perfect treasures. I hope to see a post where you have hung the numbered unit it is going to be a great addition to your cottage.

Blessings
