Time for school!

I can hardly believe today is the first day of school!  My girls headed out full of nerves and anticipation.... and I made a vow to myself to create something everyday from now until the Winter Sale - but first I need to organize all the loot I have gathered - how exciting! 

In anticipation of the Winter Sale I am posting a few of my favorite "customer appreciation" photos from the Spring Sale.

Just enough space to hold the chair she purchased.

One of our favorite shopaholics!

Take a deep breath, drive safe and enjoy this first happy school day!

What an inspiring trip!

Summer is almost over and as always I feel like I need to cram in as many trips as I can before the new school year begins.
 After a quick trip to Jackson for some hiking, good friends and yummy food my girls and I headed off to Denver for some school, home and Serendipity shopping!  I love the Internet!  I found a long list of architectural salvage and antique markets that I was only able to chip away at but was happy to find a couple interesting shops that are just tucked away. I was very happy to find some great architectural pieces, including what will prove to be a very cool front door at Architectural Salvage, Inc.  Be sure to check out some great finds at

Mom met us there and we spent the day at Old Glory Antiques Urban Home + Design. I had to peel myself out of this shop.  Everything I love - her tag line reads "the uncommon, the unexpected, the beautiful." and I agree. 
Check out this awesome chandelier made from spoons!  I love it.
I will make this a regular stop whenever I am in Denver.  Be sure to check out her blog at

A move in the works!

What have I been doing for the month of July?  Not blogging obviously.

My husband and I have been working on plans for my family's new home as well as the new home for serendip-i-ty!  That's right serendip-i-ty is getting a new and improved home and should be open and ready for business in 2012.

This is basically what it should look like!  I am so excited!

But don't let me confuse you....the Winter Sale scheduled for this November 10,11 and 12 will still be held at our original location.  Barns take a while to build!  I was just bursting at the seams to show you the plan!  I will keep you updated on the progress as the building is constructed so keep checking back.

I am also very excited about a new vendor who will join us for the the Winter 2011 Sale!  I will introduce her in future posts but I will say that she is very talented lady and will have some wonderful ephemera and funky  and surprising re-purposed items available for you or for fun holiday gifts.

Enjoy the hot weather today and the rain showers tonight.
