End-of-Summer Sale

I’m in denial that it’s August already and summer is wrapping up. The free concert series that our city sponsors sadly ended this past weekend. (I so enjoy the music, dancing and people watching.) And in two weeks it’s the night of our annual potluck block party. I love our block parties and the faithful neighbors who attend every year and the new folks who give it a try. And of course kids are heading back in school. I thought we were totally done with that now in our family since my youngest graduated from university this past June, but no, my eldest is heading back this September to pursue a master’s degree. But she’ll be buying her own school supplies!!

I also realized this summer I have not been taking advantage of many yard and estate sales. Not that I haven’t wanted to, because I have. (I’ve been living vicariously watching all the haul videos on YouTube!) But I have two problems. First, I still have lots of wonderful things to get listed in my stores. Some of these items I’m embarrassed to admit were bought more than a year ago! And secondly, I’m running out of storage space. (Maybe you have that problem too.) Time to scale back!

With that in mind I’ve been running sales. Here’s a sample of the things in my Etsy end-of-summer sale.

Thick Iceland Icewool Knit Apres-Ski Sweater, Women’s Small
Was $50, now $40.
Perfect for those in chilly climes, and bonus, it’s never been worn!
Classic Wool Herringbone Boyfriend/School Boy Jacket/Blazer
Was $35, now $28.
A good quality Land’s End jacket that’s been very gently worn with no damage.
Royal Copenhagen Dachshund Dog Figurine

Hoping to find this collectible little doggie a home!
1963-1969 Beswick Welsh Lady #1878 Ceramic Figurine

Mid-Century Fat Lava Pottery Candlestick, Handmade in Iceland

This cool candlestick just screams fall to me.
Two Scarce Blue “Dolly Varden” Teacups with Saucers, Melba Bone China

So sweet and ready for hot tea when the nights get chilly.

Hoping your summer has been (and continues to be!) fun.

Happy hunting,
