Jenny's Sale

I'll be signing autographs, as I was one of the lucky ones to be able to attend Little Green Notebook Jenny's flea market sale in Arlington, VA on Saturday morning. The sale started at 7:00 am, and by the time I arrived at 7:45, 90% of the loot was gone (much to my dismay).

Even so, it was super fun to meet Jenny. LGN has to be one of my top three favorite blogs so meeting the wealth of creativity that is Jenny was such a treat. She was very sweet and we had a quick chat while she was busy attending to her customers (and fans!).

I know we were ALL wondering who would walk away with that a-m-a-z-i-n-g Chiang Mai Dragon settee....drum roll please...

Miss Heather was the lucky purchaser! And she obliged with a picture to document her new loot. Heather said she was redoing her living room and the settee went right along with her new plans. Lucky lady!

Although I didn't get to see the sale in "prime time", I did not walk away empty-handed. I found a terrific pair of ceramic lamps in the most beautiful shade of deep green. They just need a lamp kit and some new shades and they will be drop-dead gorgeous (Jenny lamented seeing these go! But I promised a good home):

And, I also found this wonderful Diego Rivera print in a very, very pretty frame. Do you remember my post on his work? This print is just beautiful...and will work great in several of our rooms.

Did any other locals score some of Jenny's loot? 

Jenny held her mass sale as she, her husband, and their three girls are making a move to NYC very shortly...good luck with the move Jenny!

p.s. It was also great to meet a couple of AO readers - thanks to those of you who introduced yourself! :)


  1. Hi Daniela! It was so nice to meet you at the sale- I've become completely addicted to your blog! I love your new print- I was considering that one myself! I only made it to the sale 15 minutes before you and even then all the big stuff was gone. I did manage to walk away with a cute wool rug for my little girls' room and some grasscloth to line my china cabinets. My friend found a gorgeous pair of vintage crystal buffet lamps. And of course it was amazing to meet the fabulous Jenny in person!

  2. Nice to meet you too Pam! Thanks for saying hi :)

  3. Aaah! What a treat - to get to meet Jenny, AND her loot! I find it absolutely believable that most of it was g.o.n.e before the starting bell even rang!
    Lucky, you!

  4. Lucky you! Those lamps are gorgeous (love the green).

  5. So good to meet you Daniela and see my happy settee on your site today. I love-love-love it and the other things I found at Jenny's sale. Love your site and glad to add it to my daily reads!

  6. OMG! Just let me say I am GREEN with UGLY ENVY over Heather's incredible score at the sale!!! I would have paid my last nickel to have that settee!!!

  7. Oh what fun! I'm so jealous I wasn't there. Love what you picked out!

  9. I made it to the sale super late...but I managed to score a large picture frame that will house some old industrial blue prints I bought back in the fall. I'm sorry I missed all the major loot, but I found just what I needed!

  10. Such a fun sale- I was bummed I didnt live closer. Cant wait to see what you do with those lamps!

  11. So jealous!! The lamps are fabulous!
