Over the Mustard Moon in Carver

Have you heard of those "occassional" sales that are becoming so popular? Well, I decided to venture to the St. Paul, MN. area to check them out myself.
First of all, these are sales of mostly vintage items that are put on once a month, each month with a different theme.
We had a couple of adorable ladies in the shop that were talking about them, and a couple of weeks later several postcards arrived in the mail with the names and dates of the best "occassional" sales. (thanks by the way!!!)
We loaded up the Junker Ford, just in case, and we were off!
Let's just start with my favorite stop.
Mustard Moon..... and I thought I was clever. Walls papered in old book pages, old into new, fresh greens in farm implements, rusty I-don't-know-whats turned into tables with a simple addition of glass... and on and on it went.

Mustard Moon also shared space with several other sellers and they were equally as charming and the prices more than fair. I think the thing I loved most was the excitement you got from the people working the sales. The sale lasts a few days, and then they are off all over again to garage sales, estate sales, Uncle Bill's barn and any inviting dumpster.
Below is a listing of the best places I found....

I loaded up my truck to the gills! I will be going back, so if you see me, it's every man for himself.... or rather every junker for herself!!!!

Happy Holidays
