      Hi, Laurel,
      Sorry we weren’t able to visit your sale last weekend. Do you have any photos? We’ll try for April (18-21?) but that’s a busy weekend with Junk Bonanza as well as all the usual sales. Is your website up yet? Photos would be helpful if we can’t come in person.
      How was the first sale? Wishing you success and FUN in your new endeavor!
      Cheers, Sue

  8. Susan Thornton says:

    Hi, do you know how to find other areas of Minnesota that might have occasional sales? Like Duluth, St. Cloud, Rochester, etc?

    • sue says:

      Fleaquest lists stores (both occasional and regular retail). I often mention sales out of the metro if I know of them. I like the Facebook photos for West Tischer Cottage in Duluth, but have not been there in person…yet. Sometimes googling Occasional Sales and a city name will yield a sale. And please let us know if you locate a great store. Good luck!

  9. I just found your wonderful site and was so happy to see a few of my favorites made your list! I also learned of some new sales….thank you! BTW, another fave of mine is the Bee Cottage in Excelsior…. have you heard of it? xoxo. mercedes

  15. Lisa Tousignant/ Rusty Rabbitiques says:

    Hi- I just noticed that you have our sale on here which I greatly appreciate but it is listed under the wrong dates. If you could change that for me I would appreciate it. The dates are September 15-16-17 and the flea market is on September 15-16! Thank you for all your hard work on keeping people informed on upcoming sales. Lisa

  16. LuAnn says:

    I love your site and check it often. I have one suggestion for readability for the dates of “This Months Sales”; (Ex: January 4 – 7), could you put the dates in a larger point size, or make them BOLD? Whenever I scroll down I miss them because they blend in with the other store dates. That would be helpful.

    Thank you-
