The Garage Sale Goddess Was With Me:)

So whats a girl to do when she has to come up with a new display for a shop.  Hit the garage sales!  I havent been for awhile, and actually I only had to go to one.  I was looking for some ideas for a new display for my spot in the ever so cute Green Table Gifts. They are moving to a new and better location on February 1st and its a lot bigger and a different configuration so I had to come up with something new. My back drop will be a vintage door. So I needed fairly narrow and tall.  I found this book case for $5.00!  I am using this frame Patty, from the shop, gave me to use.  I can display and hang my jewelry on the wire.  But of course I had to paint it pink. So much better now:)  I move in to my new home tuesday, but for now some before and after photos and a sneek peek of the display.  If you are in the local area and get a chance, please stop by and check out the new place.  The shop will have many new vendors. Lots of vintage and handmade creations.  If you are a fan of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, you will be very happy.  Green Table Gifts is only one of two stores in Arizona able to sell this great paint.  There is a great selection of colors and I believe there will be some fun classes coming up to use these paints in all of their gorgeous colors.  The new address as of February 1st is   3401 W. Frye Road Suite 13, Chandler, AZ 85226
(480) 855-5620

Hours: Monday - Saturday 10am-6pm
Sunday 12pm-5pm

This is in the Target Shopping Center behind the Chandler Mall.
The other great bargain that I am so thrilled with is this Vera Bradly bag.  There is not a spot on it and I got it for $3.00.  Its perfect to use when I have a teaching class for all of the things I need to bring with me.  It made my day!!  This  "M" pillow is the latest class I taught.  Its for teens and it is so much fun. 
Well, I hope you have a great week,  and Pookie and Googars say dont forget to be AWESOME :)

I've gotta' get out there to see your setup missy. I hope you're doing better with this weather than I am. I am down for the count until this system leaves the valley. I haven't felt this bad in a long time, so I'm praying you're feeling fine. You made off with some really great finds, I especially love the bookshelf and frame of chicken wire.

Big Hugs,
