Y’all, there are many things for us to be grateful for in this post. First, that we have wonderful readers and vendors who spent Saturday morning with us at our yard sale. Second, that the rain held out and left us with sunny skies. And third, that it wasn’t as hot as last year’s yard sale! (Really, y’all, we were melting.) We were thrilled to be able to meet some new faces this past weekend and loved seeing a few familiar ones, too.

We were up bright and early Saturday morning in our green finest to welcome y’all with open arms, sweet tea, donuts and yard sale goodies. Despite our first sale, our garage was packed with dozens of lanterns, glassware and fabric. You could even find some leftovers from past photo shoots! Y’all made out like bandits and scored some great finds for your own weddings. We’re so excited to see how you incorporate them into your big day!

Our yard sales have always been among our favorite events. We love getting to meet the people who help us create such an awesome Southern community! We were lucky enough to have photographer Faith Teasley drive up from Fayetteville to join us. Some of our fab Blue Ribbon Vendors came over, too!

At the end of the day, the sweet tea was gone, the items picked over, and the hugs given out. We found ourselves left with a photo backdrop, tons of balloons, and miscellaneous wedding accessories. You can bet some shenanigans ensued.

Thanks again to Faith for taking these fun photos and thank y’all again for such a wonderful time! We can’t wait for the next event where we hope to meet even more of you!

Weren’t able to come? Say hi below so we can get to know you!

    I’m so disappointed that I couldn’t come AGAIN this year! I had to spend the morning taking the MPRE :( Hopefully there will be another one before I get married!

    I came to Chapel Hill last week from Pittsburgh, and was so disappointed to miss this by ONE day! Missed the last one by just a few days, too. Maybe third time’s a charm! Looks like y’all had a great day!

Top o’ the mornin’ to y’all! It may not be St. Patrick’s Day yet, but we’re fixin’ to get in the spirit! Why, you ask? We’re hosting another Southern Weddings yard sale and we couldn’t think of a better day to schedule it than March 17!

Now is it just the thrifter in me, or are yard sales the best? I love finding pieces here and there that aren’t needed by their owners anymore but that I think are the bees’ knees. Plus, if I find something really cool and one-of-a-kind, I like to make up a story about it’s past. You know that lamp I have? Yessir, it was made from the stones of an ancient royal palace and then traded along the high seas until the ship wrecked and the lamp washed ashore Carolina beach. Totally believable.

The first SW yard sale last year was a blast for us and for our readers and we couldn’t wait to put together another one! We can’t guarantee our goods come with stories quite as epic as the one above, but they are beautiful and need a home in someone’s future wedding!

This time, we want to get y’all even more involved. Of course, you’re invited to shop among our wares. But if you’re an event planner or even a former bride who wants to sell some gently used wedding items, too, we want you to participate in the yard sale with us! Shoot me an email to let me know that you’re interested and tell me what you want to sell.

Who else is more excited than a hen on a hot griddle?
P.S. I reckon the SW ladies will be donning their green best. We encourage you to do the same!
