Inspiration 2 hours away...

Hooper and I always talk about taking  day trips. Just a little jaunt (2 hours away max) to check out shops and things we hear about. This is great in theory but sometimes hard to execute. But... yesterday, we did it. After coordinating 2 grandmothers for pick up, a sitter that ended up with 7 kids, and an uncle to grab a certain 13 year old boy from detention (it's real life around here)...We hit the road! 

We hopped on our private jet drove to Raleigh and  checked out a few places... 

By accident we found 'The Find'. This shop is open very limited hours but lucky for us the owner had popped in and let us look around. We could have filled a truck with her eclectic, vintage scores. Gold dragons anyone?
Our next stop was the coolest "shop" ever... Can you guess where it is???

 hello??? bamboo, lacquer, chartreuse??? yes, please!


 Did you figure it out?... a garage! Yup! How smart is that? This savvy shopper styles her finds in her garage and opens once a week to her loyal followers and friends. Reminded us of our barn sale and got us thinking we might need to have another one soon.
These finials could dress up any lamp-  the top ones scream Hooper, while I'd opt for the stones...


This piece came home with me... swoon... I might sell it, but for now, it is so happy next to my sofa. However, I could be convinced otherwise. Anyone have to have it???


If you live in the Raleigh area and are interested in shopping in the coolest garage ever, contact us and we will give you all the details. We are definitely inspired to try our hand at another barn sale... What do you think, should we give it a go?? 

Have a great weekend...
Bye, bye birdie,

I do live in Raleigh and I am very interested to know where "The Find" is. Please send details. I also do go to Wilmington frequently and would like to visit your Barn Sale. Please let me know when you will have one next time. Thank you,

Just need to correct my spelling! I would be up for a trip to the coast for a barn sale.

Would love to know about the weekly garage sale in Raleigh too.

Thank you!
