This weekend promises sunshine for all who want to hit the sales. There are stores to visit along the way in Hopkins and Hamel if you’re heading west to the occasional sale mecca of Buffalo. The Garden Party Gallery has a patio with some fun outdoor pieces besides two stories of repurposed and refinished items in the cute yellow house. Open Fri-Sat 10-6 and Sun 12-5 at 1213 Mainstreet in Downtown Hopkins. Chloe’s Attic offers beautifully painted and refurbished dressers and buffets as well as some furniture still with original wood finishes along with other decor items. The combination of gleaming wood with a chenille seat strikes a nice note on the vintage chair pictured. Hours are Fri-Sat 10-7 and Sun 9-5 at 155 Hamel Rd (one block south of Hwy 55) in Hamel.
There are so many stores in downtown Buffalo that they have produced a map showing Occasional Sales, stores open daily, and those open every weekend. The photos are fairly representative of what you’ll find in vintage, garden, and giftware at just three of the occasional sales. Hours are 9-5 Fri-Sat and 12-5 Sun.
Please check This Month’s Sales for more information. Happy May!
