Vlog: Yard Sale Day (7 Years Strong!)

Ah, summer. The freshly cut grass, the warm air, the every other day street festival… the yard sales! Scott spearheaded our first building-wide, multi family yard sale (yup, back in our original yellow brick home!) in 2009, and we’ve carried the tradition over to our new – and by new, you know we’ve been here for 3 yearsKEEP READING >

Vlog: Let’s Go to the Flea Market!

Three Things from the Warehouse

Last week, Scott stumbled across an ad for a Mid-century Modern warehouse sale way south on Western Ave. We woke up bright and early Saturday morning, assuming there’d be a big long line around the building, only to arrive 5 minutes after opening and find that we were two of, oh, maybe six people!
