I’m so excited to share an invite with all of you to the sneak preview of the Thrift Studio pop up shop!

This Friday, September 30th, Lisa Robison and Kim Turner of Dwell with Dignity (as seen on Nate Berkus!) are hosting an event here in Dallas to unveil the vignettes that five Dallas designers (including EJ Interiors) have created! The other designers participating include Abbe Fenimore, Beth Dotolo & Carolina V. Gentry, Sam Reitmayer Sano, and William Baker. I am so honored to be included in such an talented group of designers.  The vignettes seriously look amazing, and the best part is EVERYTHING is for sale and all proceeds go to benefit Dwell with Dignity – an organization dedicated to helping families escape poverty and homelessness through design.

Additionally, there will be donated items from Jan Showers, Peacock Alley, David Cadwallader, David Sutherland, and more, at discounted prices! This is your chance to get some gorgeous furniture and accessories at amazing prices AND help out a great cause!

The Thrift Studio sneak peek event is open to the public Friday, September 30th, from 6-9 p.m. at 1616 Hi Line in the Dallas Design District. Admission is $25 – all proceeds go to benefit Dwell with Dignity.  If you miss the grand opening, not to worry because the pop up shop is open throughout the month of October!

Such a glam invitation, I had to include pictures-

Next week, we’ll unveil the designers’ vignettes on MG and how a little paint, DIY, upholstery and creativity can go a long way with vintage furniture!  These are truly our favorite types of makeovers!

I was so excited when I received this email from Wisteria! It is finally time for their Warehouse Sale this Thursday, Sept. 22nd through Saturday Sept. 24th! (I will be there tomorrow with bells on!)

Their warehouse is located just outside of Dallas in Farmers Branch (see map HERE). I highly recommend heading out there sometime this weekend for some great deals on fab furniture, home accessories, jewelry and more!

Looking for fabulous home accessories, vintage furniture, clothing, jewelry or even some free goodies this upcoming weekend? Then be sure to stop by the Dallas Flea event taking place at South Side on Lamar here in Dallas on September 24th! It only comes around four times a year, and trust me you do not want to miss it! Here are a few pictures I snagged from their website…

Mary’s Finds is one of my favorite vintage stores here in Dallas, and her booth looks just as great!

Loving the neon!

They have some seriously amazing accessories. I am in love with these large rock crystals and nature-inspired artwork.

Graphic artwork done by local artists, so fun!

This place is huge, and they really do have everything!

Pillows made from recycled bags… green and chic! (And how cute is that little girl?! Loving her whole outfit.)

And finally, a booth after my own heart… Geometric fabric, turquoise accessories, and a glam quatrefoil mirror, love it!

Bring the whole fam and come to the Dallas Flea for new and vintage finds, tasty food, and live music! See you there!!

How about these gorgeous, classic neutrals?

Check out the fun fur!! Love the orange pillow with the bit of detail too!

Beautiful, subtle geometric pattern on the Giovanni Matelasse shams and coverlet-

Tons of coverlet patterns to choose from-

Luxurious towel selection-

Sheets! (One of these could be yours!)

Fun geometric accent pillows-

I seriously wanted to curl up in one of these displays and take a little break from work…

Dog Beds…Zoey needs one of these!

The mix of pattern and textures make this bedding combo so interesting-

And finally, my favorite vignette in the whole showroom! I’m really digging the orange and grey combo here.

Again, be sure to enter for your chance to win a fab set of sheets from Peacock Alley!

The other weekend I randomly stumbled upon the most fab vintage shop, called Think Twice, which is located inside Hollywood Floral in Dallas.

The owner of the store is big into collecting so a lot of his inventory are things that he has accumulated over the years.  His furniture obsession was bigger than mine if that’s even possible.

And talk about a small world- when I got there, I realized that I had been to one of the sales that he has had at his own home before, so this wasn’t the first time we’d met!

This store is a hidden gem off highway 30 and Grand Ave and prices are amazing here.  The regency chair below was selling for $30, if I remember correctly! It needs a little TLC, but hey, what vintage chair doesn’t?  I must say, that the best part of buying something used is the PLANNING process!  What fabric, what finish, do I do tufting or nailheads, and will it be skirted or have legs…the world is your oyster with vintage chairs! (especially if the chair is only $30, it leaves room to spend more money on amazing fabrics!)

They had a bunch of great pairs of chairs..

And some good looking singles too-

This tufted deep pink chair is only $95-

This glass top piece used to be a floor lamp…but why not use it as a metallic accent table instead?  (and I have to admit that is what I originally thought it was anyways!)

This channel back chair is in great condition and selling for $125…

Last but not least, I couldn’t leave without showing you one final image! It’s on their Facebook page and is my favorite- a quirky orange bamboo chair and table set that I regret to say has already sold! ($300 for the whole sha-bang) I’m a little jealous as I would have loved this for my patio! (but probably would have switched out the table for a bright white piece to prevent it from looking too orange) Sigh- a girl can dream!

I suspect that there are lots of great things to come for Think Twice!
