Linda’s Cellar in Chaska is great for seasonal decor this month. Jack ‘o lantern pails are a prime example. There’s plenty of rustic vintage fondly referred to as Junk as well as country antiques. The shop is open 10-5 today, Thurs and 10-4 Fri-Sat at 112 E 2nd St., in downtown Chaska. Again, wishing you happy saling wherever you choose to go!
Laurie’s Trunk is known for elegant furniture and home accessories with a European flair. This month’s sale won’t disappoint with items like the ornate gray side table or the muted blue dresser. Both would make perfect accent pieces in a stylish Scandinavian home. The industrial metal table and chair would add a fun, surprise element to a traditional decor. You’ll also find fountains, chandeliers, statuary, and more from 10 – 5 Thurs-Sat and noon-4 Sun at 9066 Lyndale Ave S in Bloomington. Happy saling!
Terri has assembled a good mix of old and new to capture the spirit of Provence. Here painted furniture comes in basic colors – red, black, white – and some soft, country pastels.

It’s easy to reach from 35W. Exit at 66th St, go west 1/2 block, turn right onto Girard and go one block. Voila!
The gals at Your Lucky Day want to inspire you this month to create, update or remake something. To help you do that, they have examples of small projects from jewelry to light fixtures to chalk boards and the supplies you’ll need to make your own. (Some items are perfect for kids’ projects). All you sewists will find fabric, thread, rickrack, and assorted embellishments plus a vintage Singer machine! Cool dishes, housewares, cabin goods, toys, games and books are part of the mix, of course. The shop is open 9 to 6 Thursday-Sunday at 4159 Grand Ave. S. in Minneapolis. Happy saling!
An occasional sale can be your destination or a stop along the way. With so many sales this weekend, there is variety galore – check This Month’s Sales for a complete list. To the south, two shops to check out are Laurie’s Trunk in Bloomington and The Brass Peacock in Savage. Both specialize in elegant, traditional furnishings, Laurie’s with a more European flair while The Brass Peacock leans to more dark woods and Victorian lace. If you’re looking for an eatery with vintage charm, try The Depot in Savage which is housed in the 1880 red-sided former railroad station. Happy Saling wherever you go!

The parking lot was already full at 3:07 shortly after The Picket Fence Gals opened for this weekend’s sale. Furniture, both shabby and antique, bright or white, could be found. Even a sweet little twig table. The Gals – with some help from the Guys – were available to carry, tag, and ring up purchases. It’s fun to watch the team of helpers. They make the whole buying process fun and easy. Fewer folks were lingering outside with the showers so you might nab that perfect garden ornament or birdhouse yet. Check hours on This Month’s Sales. Happy saling!
