Olivenhain Grove Sale

Gail Peterson & Friends are organizing a great vintage and antique sale on Friday, April 30th and Saturday, May 1st in the middle of Gail's property in Olivenhain, which is a very chic little area tucked between Encinitas and Rancho Santa Fe in northern San Diego County. It is being billed as a Grove Sale, in the middle of Gail's lemon orchard. Sounds cool, doesn't it, a Sale in the Grove?

I have gotten pretty discerning about which events I go to, especially with the markets' schedules, but I called Gail after her initial email inquiry, and we had a great little chat, and then I went to her blog to check it out; see the link

That's when I saw her beautiful white garden house; peaked roof, twig chandelier, vintage door panels and the white-washed fence beyond:
And her fabulous crusty white French mirror: Sign me up! A garden house is the thing I want the most for our house now; I need space to organize my potting and extra plants; I have set aside pairs of vintage doors and leaded glass windows for the project. The garden house might come after the tool shed, which is a 1950's broken-down eyesore, but it's rising on the list. It would be easier to plan if I saw a few, but alas you don't find many.

This is a first-time event for the Grove Sale, and the first event I have done in San Diego for some time, but we will be there, in conjunction with Cargo & Company, with lots of pretty summer baskets, rolling carts with the new liners that are now in production, and European smalls from Cargo & Company. And, I have the added benefit of checking out Gail's Garden House and crusty white mirror. Should be fun.

Save the date and look forward to meeting some new friends....
