April Sweet Salvage -- Secrets

Yesterday was another Sweet Salvage on 7th event.  This month, April, they revealed a secret to us.  They are moving to another building just a block south on 7th Avenue.  More room is needed.  And the new building will have air conditioning!  A must for the events coming up during the hottest months here in Phoenix, Arizona.  I was able to take a few pictures this time, but it was hard taking pics without shoppers in them.  Here is what I managed to find at Sweet Salvage this month.
I thought this windmill was super!  I saw it going out the door with a new owner.  This windmill reminds me of the one that was on my uncle's farm in Iowa.
Love that pears painting!  And the lovely greens and floral in that chair.

A clever way to display old photos!
Loved this French art book and that great chandelier!
 This would be so awesome in a garden!
This old typewriter is wonderful!
This was my favorite display of the day.
That pink patio chair near the top was so cool!  Love this garden theme.
It was very hard to take pics without someone stepping into my sight.  But these gym lockers even had an old baseball uniform hung in it!  Clever!  Love the bank of metal file drawers, too.

Last is this great chippy china cabinet.  It had already been partially unloaded by the time I got to see it.  Lots of shoppers yesterday!!  Lots of great displays.

Sweet Man... the Kudos on these fab Images go to our Friend Judy who braved the early crowds... I came much later in the Evening when it was more Zen *winks* but I sure am glad Judy that you weathered the most crowded part of the Event to capture the Beautiful Vignettes before most of it sped out the door and got unfoofed! *Smiles* It was so good to run into you again at the Crawl... and I'm so very Happy for the Sweet Team for scoring a bigger building and more parking just down the Street so that future Events will be even more fabulous, well received & hopefully Calmer. We had Fun going later in the day when the crowds subsided and I could get some great shots without Shoppers in every frame! *LOL* You did an admirable job of covering the Event as it began... you're a braver Woman than I! *Smiles*

Hugs... Dawn... The Bohemian

Hello Judy, what a wonderful blog you have, full of treasures. I love flea market finds, aren't they just great? I'd soooo much love to have a typewriter like the one in your picture.... I love your beautiful art work too. Think I'm going to be a regular visitor here :) Happy day to you! Hugs, Wendy
