Oh my goodness girls, I'm so tempted to hop on a plane ! This looks like so much fun. I know a splendid time will be had by all with you two experts at the helm !
Darn, too bad I'm in Colorado. That sounds awesome. Can't wait to see what treasures have been found and revamped.
It sucks to live in Australia…no cheese whizz, no double stuffed oreos and no Goodwill Hop….
For those of you who attend, I hope you have a blast! Can't wait to see the results.
Boo! I wanna come! I was half tempted to see how far that was from Nashville when I realized that I have a wedding that weekend! Ya'll have fun now!
Hmmm, you're inviting a bunch of women to go to 4 of the same stores, and shop from the same selection of antiqies and goodies – are you also gonna come back and show us the pics of the bruises after you're all done? lol .Won't that be like fighting for the perfect $99 dress at a bridal sale?
You're brave girls, that's for sure.
Seriously, I know it will be a ton of fun.
I am chuckling at Polly's comment. The thought did cross my mind. LOL! Sure sounds like fun. If you ever decide to take the show on the road, I'd love to join you in LA.
I'm just up in Ft Wayne with family in Fishers….but I've already got plans that weekend. Boo.
Maybe next time?
What a great idea girls! Have fun, I'll be anxious to see the results!
Man, makes me wish I still lived in Indy– which doesn't happen much during the winter. 🙂
Sounds like a ton of fun!! That would require me extending my Indiana vacation by another week and a half hhhhhhhhhhhhmmmmmmm? I think I might be DONE with living out of a suitcase by then, so I think I'm gonna have to pass on what is sure to be a very fun adventure!! Can't wait to see everyones treasures and projects!!
Wow that sounds like fun.
I wish you guy's were in Orlando, Fl.
Hey! You picked one of the few weekends that I'll be in Indiana visiting family! What are the odds? I'd love to spend the day with you, but……family time will be short. Have fun!
I wish I lived by you, I would so be there. Love to thrift shop!!
What a brilliant idea! Have fun!
Wish I lived closer…would be there in a heart beat!!! Have a great time and can't wait to see the post!
OOOOOOOH that sounds like so much fun! Too bad I'm here in Florida… but it's tempting…. if nothing else for the fantastic fellowship of kindred sisters!!!
Click here to see my new give-away!
I so wish I was up visiting home "Noblesville" that weekend because I would be there in a heartbeat.
Might have to visit some when I'm up there next time.
Heather in IN (just not Indy…boo)
Oh my word! I wish I loved near you two! How fun! Pretend I'm shopping with you ok! Back away from the end table!!! I saw it first!
Sounds fun, but why are you charging money? What does the registration fee buy me?
It will pay for transportation costs, gas (15 passenger vans), our time for coordinating it, online registration form costs, some goodies for our guests (shhhh it's a secret). I hope that helps we'd love to have you.
i want to come…but – lysa terkeurst is speaking at mount vernon nazarene university that friday & saturday & i just gotta go hear her. tell me, again, why it is i can't be in two places at once!
puleeze do this, again, so i can join you.
Wish I lived near by. Darn. Sounds like so much fun!!
Just curious. What does the $15 charge cover?
You're making me want to move to Indy!! Ugggh! Sounds like so much fun maybe next one you could plan a destination shop and hop – let's say….Kansas City?!
Two of my favorite bloggers together in one place? Oh man that sounds like fun!! I wonder if I could save enough money thrift shopping to justify the cost of a plane ticket. 😉
I am planning on signing up. I have one conflicting thing on my schedule but I think I can make this work. I have been wanting to connect in person with bloggers close to me and this sounds perfect! I am only an hour and a half away! Yippee!
What a fun idea…If Bloomington didn't have spring break that week, I would certainly drive up and participate. I had no idea that ya'll were from Indy…
Hey, I'm gonna see if I can pull this off…got a lot of scheduling to juggle…but I'll get back to you after Sunday! xo rachel
I'm so doing this! I'm in Bowie, MD. I'm thinking I'll hit the Crofton and Hanover Goodwills! Anyone else want to join in with me? http://1creativedisaster.blogspot.com/
Do you still have openings? I think this sounds absolutely wonderful… See we just moved to Indiana (Kokomo, to be exact) 2 weeks ago from Alaska. I love thrift stores and have been bemoaning the fact that I haven't had a good one to shop in for the past 5 years!! Please drop me a line if you do have openings and I will sign up!!
(By the way, I just found your blogs and have been spending way too much time going over old posts but I LOVE it!!)
What is the cost for lunch?
Sounds fun, but you know I'm in GA so I won't be going 🙁
If you can stomach paying 5.89 (why .89?) for a woman's t-shirt – excuse me blouse- then Atl has a TON of GW stores to peruse. (meanwhile men's t-shirts are 2.60) I've even seen a press-board nightstand with plastic sheeting, not even melamine, that was pretty beat up for $60. I don't know who they think is going to buy that.
Eeeeeek!! Wish I lived closer! I have to second what another poster said about taking this show on the road. If you're ever in AZ, I'm there!
If only we'd started Financial Peace University next month… 😉
How about doing one in North Texas??? What a fun event!
I'm lucky enough to live in Indy near you two, but my Husband will be out of town, so I'll be spending quality Mommy/Daughter time with my little ones.
I can't believe it! I am in the Indianapolis area!! If I can't make it to the whole thing is there a way I can pay and go to part of it???????
And if so is there a contact number to meet up with everyone??
