the magic of the Krickside Yard Sale

I happened upon the most dreamy of places today.
It's in the far away land called Big Cedar. OK, it wasn't actually that far away... but it felt like I entered into another world. A world filled with vintage & antique gems, whimsy & delight!

It was a yard sale, but more than that. It was also an experience.
It's called the 3rd Annual Krickside Yard Sale.
It's hosted by some of the most lovely people you'll ever meet, Robin Eecloo & Lesley Blayney.
Without further ado, here's some snapshots of my visit there:

This is me entering their vintage shop. Immediate glee filled my heart!

you see the little blue typewriter? I want it...

I could've come home with EVERYTHING you see here.

Here's the yard sale: full of vintage, antique & a few newer goodies!

Of course, Grace had to meet the hostesses pup Maggie.

If you are looking to share in this wonderment, don't worry! It's not too late. They repeat the wonder again tomorrow, Saturday July 3rd, in the afternoon (starting at 1pm)
Here's the address:
105 Dunford Rd. (off hwy #28 at BIG CEDAR just north of Burleigh Falls). 
Here they are on Mapquest.
