This sweater by Oilily has a "home is where the heart is" logo.
I have heard of long distance phone calls and long distance relationships but have you heard of long distance garage sales? Well, I think Nora and I just invented this terminology. I jokingly tell Nora that she will never be out of my life, but it seriously is difficult knowing when I walk by a pair of Primigi shoes I just can't run them across the street to her. I will need to develop new habits!
I knew this garage sale might have possibility. I was excited when she was open to people coming early- as in the day before she was planning. I am not normally one to swoop in before time but you know it never hurts to ask. From the moment I walked in, I gasped as my eyes spotted an Oilily 2 piece outfit and a Indygo and it seemed as if Hanna Anderssen goods were everywhere. This IS my element. I instantly went into search and scan mode. Find beautiful pieces and place into pile- check sizes later. Another Oilily....ahh. Then I was distracted by the table of Hanna jammies for $1 a set. I wanted someone near me so I could scream into their ear.
Instead I set my pile down and calmly called Nora. I knew my phone did not have a lot of battery left but I hoped it had enough to call her. As I was checking sizing, nothing would fit Ella. (insert sad music) But it all would fit Greta and then eventually Hazel. So I needed to check with Nora to see if she was interested. The prices were too good to not get them and ship them to Pennsylvania! I think the jammies alone were worth the price of shipping! (cue happy music) I chatted with Nora and she seemed to think it all sounded great! ONce I got home, I took pictures for her and emailed them to her. She told me that she enjoyed this moment! I think not having her here to experience this with is tough for both of us. Garage sales and bargain shopping was a true bonding experience. But through the lovely iPhone, we can connect even though we are hundred of miles away. Below are many of the items I purchased. Can you hear my excitement? You should have heard Nora's!
