Spring Vintage Tag Sale

The girls at Elizabeth & Co. hosted their second vintage tag sale this weekend. A huge thank you to everyone who sent good wishes our way and came out to support us. It was even bigger and better than the first one and we had an absolute blast!

Here we are just before the doors opened! That's Megan, Susan, Karla, Sharon (that's me!) and Roxane (our newest partner!).

Megan is my daughter (can you tell?) and our long distance partner. She lives in Kentucky and flew home to Maryland for the weekend. I was so thrilled to have her with us! She set up the blog for us and often gets emergency phone calls when I get stumped on a problem. As you might have guessed, she's crafty too! And in case you are a new follower, she is also part of the reason we chose the name Elizabeth & Co. You can read the full story here.

We are so blessed to have this amazing house to host our sales. Here's a little tour of our sale, starting on the front porch (just before things got really crazy!).

So there you have it, done and done! The house is pretty much empty. Thanks to "the boys" who hung out with us and carried an amazing amount of furniture in and out of the house all weekend long!

We are thrilled and exhausted (really exhausted!), but already planning for our next sale. It will probably be in September. In the meantime, we'll be shopping and painting up a storm. Can't wait!

One last giveaway reminder - Did you notice the burlap and ruffles table runner on the kitchen table? We're giving one away as a thank you to all our wonderful followers. We just reached 500 a week or so ago. We started the blog to chronicle the adventures of the girls at Elizabeth & Co. and we're so happy to have you here with us. If you'd like to follow along and have a chance to win the table runner of your choice - natural, chocolate brown or sage green, just leave a comment here. Better hurry, I'll announce a winner tomorrow morning!

And due to the sale, I am way behind in the blog world. I'll be trying to catch-up in the next few days. Please know that I have read and appreciate each and every comment and will be making the rounds checking to see what you all have been up to in the last week or so. Again, thank you so much for being here!

So glad to see you had a successful sale!!! My sister and I are doing an open house the end of April, but we don't have nearly the amount of things you have. You guys must have really worked hard to collect all of that. Looks like a wonderful display of items for every taste and wish I could have seen it in person. Congrats on your success.

The house and all the things you guys worked so hard on was just fabulous. My friend Jan and I can't wait til the next sale.
