Now that the sale is over, I will be bringing some new additions your way. I added some industrial stools to the seating inventory. They will look fabulous with the barn board bars! There is a new mini trunk that is perfect for the table top. As well as 26 custom made burlap runners for your tables! I know so many of you who want them but just can't find them anywhere. So now your DIY project is done for you!
I think my favourite addition today is 8 pretty white bird cages. They are so sweet. I saw them at a wedding earlier this summer and I just had to have them. I think you will agree they are adorable! Ranging from 10 to 19 inches they are perfect for creating a collection.
I mentioned earlier in the season that we offer custom bunting production too. Today I added 230 feet (!!!!!!) of double sided bunting to the collection. This bunting was used to wrap around the outside of a 40 x 75 foot tent. I have big plans for it in August. It is a great addition to liven up a party space, especially if your colours are blush pinks, beige and greens.
Coming up in the next few weeks; barn board back drops, 10 foot barn board bar, double door aisle entrance, a super 10 foot long Windsor chair bench,
Enough chatter about the sale. Ya'all know it is coming up next Sunday.
I thought I would take a moment to revisit Jen & Luke's beautiful wedding in London, Ontario last fall. It was featured on Style Me Pretty Canada and received lots of comments. The reason I want to revisit it is because I am receiving a lot of last minute requests for 'some place to put the programs', the bike for photos or 'some place to put pictures'. So here are some ideas, using HVR inventory, thanks to Jen & Luke for their creativity and Young Hearts Photography for the gorgeous photos.
Less than two weeks to HVR's first 'Lazy Days of Summer' Sale. Cal (our truck) is going to packed full for this tail gate event. Here are some the items that will be available at the sale on July 22nd.
There will not be any pre-sales or 'saves' for anyone. If you want to buy something, you must come to the sale. I will be accepting cash, Visa or Mastercard for payment methods. No cheques.
Dunlop Livery Antiques kindly opened their front lawn for HVR's tail gate sale. This location has special meaning to me because it was one of the places I use to go with my parents when they were out antique hunting. I spent hours in the upper part of the barn as a child, playing house amongst the antique beds, dressers and quilts. Pushing my doll around in a pram. Asking if we could home yet. ;-)
The new owner (o.k. he isn't so new, Bob has owned the place for 11 years) has a great eye for buying unique pieces. Now it is my 6 year old son who has to keep himself busy while I shop around the barn. Everything is full circle, I guess.
Dunlop Livery Antiques (on Facebook too) will be hosting a Customer Appreciation Sale on July 22nd too. One day only to buy some great pieces at cost or below what Bob paid for them. There will also be regular priced items for sale in the barn. Some of my favourites (sap buckets, skeleton keys, crates, frames, industrial letters and oyster baskets) will be available for you to purchase too. Take a look.
I will keep posting photos on the HVR Facebook page as I get items priced. I might even have a sweet little surprise for you closer to the date of the sale.
So make a date with some friends for a road trip to the Goderich area. (Here is a map to where the sale is) The beaches are grand and you will definitely go home with a trunk full of vintage goodies for your home, wedding decor or as a gift.
