So Much To Tell......

So many things to blog about.  I don't even know where to begin.

I went to visit my new favorite stores in Dekalb this past week.  I have been looking for a wire basket (I love wire baskets) to hold some crochet blankets.  They are too nice to hide away in the linen closet, but a regular basket wouldn't do.  I wanted to be able to see them.  So, I found a bicycle basket at My Favorite Things for $14.  I took the hardware off it and it now holds the blankets.

The stores in the downtown area are having their Christmas Open House (I know, it's almost here) Hometown Holidays on November 6 from 5-10pm.  My favorite dealer in My Favorite Things is having an open house at the Gittleson's Farm at 2903 McGirr Road in Steward on Nov 18 from 3:30-6:30pm and Nov 19 from 8:30-3:30pm.  It sounds like it will be so much fun. I definitely have this one on my calendar.

I went to Nellie's Barn Sale in Roscoe on Friday.  I didn't know what to expect, but quickly found out how exciting it was.  It was super busy and hard to find parking.  I used the boy scout area that you had to pay to park in.  It was close enough to the sale.  There was a nice variety of vendors and people were buying.

 I bought a wonderful necklace from Miss Magpie's Reliquary which is in Vintage Bliss in Beloit Wisconsin.  (another of the stops on my bucket list)  They have a great selection of jewelry.  I was super happy with my purchase.

I saw a few people that I knew, even my neighbor who was honking at me as I walked back to my car.  The next sale is Christmas at the Farm on Nov 6 in the evening and Nov 7 during the day at Meyer's Tails Up Farm 5390 Irene Road in Belvidere Illinois.  I think my neighbor Jan and I will go together to this one.

Not to mention that I stopped at soooo many garage and estate sales these past few days.  A rummage sale too where I found some vintage Christmas.  (No one but me looked at it.  I couldn't believe it). By tomorrow I will be so tired.  (Even a soccer game thrown in there and getting the boys ready for their homecoming dance).

Oct 16-18 is Autumn Drive in Woodstock.  This is another fabulous way to spend the day.  I'll be there!

Happy treasure hunting!

  1. Hi Milena,
    I was at Nellie's Barn Sale on Friday. I am surprised I did not run into you. I was with my girlfriend and we had a great time. Have a great Sunday.
