Clearing Out Some Stuff

Paper flower party decor

Today’s post is mostly for my local (Mpls/St Paul greater area) readers, because I’ve got quite a bit of extra stuff I need to clear out! If you’ve been reading for a bit, you know I’ve been amassing chairs and tables this spring for our big grad party ( “Outdoor Party Tips: The Entrance and Furniture”). I’d also been holding onto some of our favorite furniture creations to use for the party also. But the big event is over…and I need to clear some things out!

So today’s post is kind of like a Craig’s list posting of items I want to sell, to the peeps that know what I’m all about and can retrieve the items that they so badly need in their lives!

If you’re interested in anything, email me at and I can provide you with measurements, etc. Cash or legit check only. And no take backs;) Local pickup/arrangements only (sorry out-of-state friends). I will mark items sold as they sell.

First off…the party decor:

Paper flower party decor

Paper flower decor, paper lanterns, and polka-dot bunting. Great for a shower, a birthday party…or next year’s graduate. It also comes all packed in an under-the bed container so you can store it until your event. $65

Fabric squares.

12 Decor fabric squares, backed with fabric and edged with eyelet. Approximately 22″ square. $50


Vintage and new gold/brass accessory items: $45


White painted crib springs: $15 each. {only 1 left!}

Coral screen

Vintage tri-fold screen. $20 and I’ll even send a can of coral spray paint your way, if you want to keep it this color.

Now, for the furniture:

white party chairs

6 freshly painted white, fold-able wood party chairs with newly upholstered outdoor fabric seats: $135

Vintage chairs

Vintage chairs

Yes, I’m parting with the awesome leg-o-matic chairs! They’re so compact for storage. 6 chairs are the same, 1 is different (7 total): $145  Sold!

patio table

Textured glass, wicker accent patio table: $35

Patio table

Textured glass patio table: $25

Vintage door center island



Yes, you’re right…this is our old Patina General checkout counter. Many good memories here, and it worked marvelously for the party buffet! The granite top is just sitting on the base made from vintage doors and spindles. Would be great for a kitchen island, outdoor serving area, craft room, or a store checkout! $395

chevron-topped table





Chevron table, $395. It will kill me to part with this beauty; it’s 9 feet long and is bar height. It’s finished with outdoor poly. This was a major time-consuming project for Mr. Fix-it, and I love it, but just shouldn’t store it until I can add onto my house to fit it in, right?

Empire style table


We created this beefy, pretty wood/white table from a piece that probably was a church communion table. It’s tall and heavy. Perfect for a large entryway or a tall desk with a pretty barstool height chair next to it. Empire style farmhouse table: $175


1/2 moon wood/white table, $125. This is 1/2 of my old dining table, married up to some new, chunky legs. Great for a hallway or an entryway (no corners to bang into).

Door table



Mr. Fix-it made this door table many years ago, we sold it, and now it made it’s way back to us just in time for the grad party! We trimmed off the legs so it’s at normal table height (for vintage chairs), but it could certainly use some TLC. Door Table, $50  Sold!

That’s all for now, but I am certainly going to need to do a sale in late summer/fall-ugh! Because I still have a lot more to clear out. Will keep you local peeps posted!

Please share on your FB! Hope to hear from you!
