Turquoise Love

The Home Depot had a can of "oops" in turquoise. I can't resist a can of "oops" paint especially in this fab shade! I spent the weekend painting everything turquoise.

Look What I Found!

Last weekend my two gal pals Liz & Lisa told me about an estate sale in their neighborhood. "But don't bother" they said, "there's nothing good left".

I didn't listen.

Check out the goods....

I just realized there is a boxes and other square things theme here. With the exception of this final fabulous find. An old set of cobbler's shoe forms.

One of these things is not like the others.

Sometimes it pays not to listen to others.

Feed the Birds

It certainly has been a cold and snowy winter here in Salt Lake City. Don't forget to put lots of seeds out for the little birds in your yard.

This is the view from our back window. I just love watching these finches swarm around the feeder. It's more entertaining than anything on TV!

Two Day Sale

If you have turned on your TV in the last few weeks, no doubt you have seen this crazy lady rambling on about the big 2 Day sale at Target. The sale starts the day after Thanksgiving; Black Friday. I never was inclined to go to these sales that start at the crack of dawn, or even earlier. The Target sale starts at 4 AM! Goodness.

I don't get it.

Well, if you are looking for bargains this Friday and Saturday, stop by Second Hand Chic. We will be offering a 20% discount on everything in our shop. You heard right...EVERYTHING.

There will be no 4 AM opening or "door-crashers" because that could get dangerous. We prefer not to injure our customers.

So enjoy the holiday. Sleep in on Friday and then have a leisurely cup of coffee and then head over to Second Hand Chic at 10 AM. Leave the Big Box shopping to the crazy people.

Love, Kelly

The Early Bird Gets the Worm

Sometimes I feel lazy on the weekends and decide not to go to the estate sales. My friend Michael, owner of the shop Now & Again, is far more ambitious than me. He snagged this fabulous settee at a sale on Saturday.

So jealous.

He brought it to his shop and sold it immediately!

Shop Local

With the holidays quickly approaching we'd like to remind you to shop local this gift giving season. There was a great article published recently in Utah Stories Magazine featuring some local apparel boutiques. One shop that was featured is SL Citizen owned by my friend Lindsay Frendt.

Here is Lindsay revealing her secret stash. She and I often run into each other at the Estate Sales here in Salt Lake. We bonded in the basement at a hoarder's sale while rifling through boxes of old sewing patterns. Good times.
SL Citizen is located in downtown SLC in Library Square. The shop features hand crafted items by local artisits. You'll find apparel and accessories, jewelry, home decor, ephemera and other gift items.

Here's my favorite item in the shop made by Sarah de Azevedo.

Be sure to stop by Salt Lake Citizen:

Library Square
210 East 400 South
Mon-Sat 10-7
Fri-Sat 10-6

Or check them out on FaceBook.

Love, Kelly
