Our summer sale is a wrap!

A huge thank you to everyone who came to our summer tag sale! We have the very best friends and customers! It's because of you that we get to do what we love to do!


And this sale was a hot one for sure! I think we were already melting by the time we hung up our sign!


But Roxane and Susan managed to keep smiling in spite of the heat!



Pat, Susan and Sandy were our very first customers of the weekend and as you can see, they did not go home empty-handed.  These girls know how to shop!


And you remember I promised there would be cookies right? I've already shared the recipe for the chocolate cookies that have now become a tag sale favorite. Roxane also makes a lemon version that is very popular. Both recipes start with cake mix and are super easy to make!


And a few weeks ago at our Be Inspired link party, I featured a recipe for "The Best Sugar Cookie Ever" from Barbara at 21 Rosemary Lane. I promised to make them for the tag sale. Well let me tell you, they lived up to the name. They are simply delicious! And when I was baking them, my whole house smelled like Christmas in July!


And I just have to share this photo. We don't usually get a whole lot of boys at our sales, but I think the cookies eased the pain of shopping for these guys. They seemed quite content to just hang out in front of the cookies!


All in all, it was just a wonderful weekend. Our little house is almost empty and that's a good thing. After a few days rest, we'll all be back to work. Our fall sale will be in Steptember and that's just a few short weeks away!

Thanks so much for sharing this experience with us!

I love the photo of the boys just hanging out. Too cute. I wish California wasn't so faraway, I would love to have been there! BTW-I'm going to try out your chalk paint recipe too. I'll let you know how it goes.

Congrats on a great sale! The pictures are fabulous. I wish I lived closer so I could attend. Earlier this summer I went to a garden flea market at a local store owner's house and it seems very similar to your sale. It was so much fun. Have a geat week!
