Occasional Sale – part 1…

osseo 004
My friend Kate and I  went to a two occasional sales in Osseo, MN. The first sale we hit was at Nic Nac Paddywac’s (see address and sale info at the bottom of the post). Not only were the items charming…but the prices were very fair. osseo 005
osseo 006 The blue stand above would be great as a side table if you took out the bowl and place a piece of glass on it.

The tapestry fireplace screen would be fabulous in a cabin.

I loved the design and color of the frames below.
osseo 009The piece below was $129 and sold while were there and the person who bought it also purchased the candelabras.
osseo 010 I don’t have any china but thought these dishes were beautiful and took this picture for those of you that enjoy china.

osseo 012 It would be fun to plant herbs in these wall planters.
osseo 013If you really want to sell items you need to always include the dimensions and suggestion as to what the item could be used for. The piece below was probably used to store sheet music, but the tag suggested using it for scrapbooking paper...good suggestion.

osseo 015 The piece below could be used as a dresser, buffet or to store scrapbooking or quilting supplies.
