All The Way From Florida!

We decided to kick off our tag sale season a little early this year. It didn't feel quite like spring outside. It was rainy, windy and cold! We even had to shovel a little snow off the front sidewalk before we opened the doors. But that's okay, our customers always bring their own sunshine. And in this case, we had a little extra Florida sunshine from these two lovely ladies!
We always start our sale weekends with a Wednesday evening preview beginning at 3:00 PM. I received this email a few hours before we opened.
My sister and I are here from Florida. We can't wait till 3:00!
Cathy & Missy
And of course I'm thinking ... how nice that our sale coincides with their visit to Maryland.
Well guess what ... Cathy and Missy drove from Florida to Maryland just to visit our tag sale! They are long-time blog readers and just always wanted to come to a sale, so they did!
Our first reaction was ... NO YOU DID NOT!
We were totally blown away!!!
I mapquested it, that's over 900 miles and about 14 hours of driving each way!
Cathy and Missy ... thank you from the bottom of our hearts! It was a pleasure to meet you and you made us feel so very special. We are still smiling! Hope you enjoyed your trip to Maryland!
I've said it before, I just love the people we meet along the way!
And what wonderful inspiration!
Is there something you've always wanted to do?
Maybe you just need to do it!!!

Early Spring 2014 Tag Sale Sneak Peek

No doubt about it, it was a very long winter!
And to be quite honest, we just really missed you all.
So we decided to kick off our tag sale season a little early.
I hope you're ready, because spring is bursting out all over around here!

We host our sales in a lovely old home where my husband's grandparents lived for many years. There's a big front porch, beautiful wooden floors and graceful arches. I think the house really adds so much to the charm of what we do. We hope you feel like you've been invited into our home for a visit!

I just love this upstairs landing!

I bet you can guess where this pink inspiration came from!
Someone small and sweet perhaps?

There are four of us here at Elizabeth & Co. We all pretty much do our own thing between sales. We never really know what anyone else is painting or collecting until we deliver it to the house. And then it somehow just magically all works together. I often tell our customers that this feels like a play house for big girls!

We know that we are very lucky to be doing something that we really love. And we get to share it, which makes it even better!

I hope you get a chance to come out and visit us this weekend!
Feel free to bring a friend or two!
In addition to the fabulous furniture, repurposed finds and eclectic vintage pieces, there will be cookies and hugs too!
Like I said, we missed you over the winter!
