I love this time of year when so many shops are having their Holiday Open Houses!! We are now working on weekend #3 of checking out all of the neat "stuff" that vendors and stores in our KC metropolitan area have gathered for us to drool over . . . and hopefully purchase!!
This weekend, THE HOLIDAY BOUTIQUE is being held at the Overland Park (KS) Convention Center! This was the first time we'd attended this event.
My friends and I are not fans of the type of clothing and jewelry sold at these kind of events (and there's booth after booth of it), but lots and lots of other ladies love it!
However, there were many, many great booths that were very unique and owned by local and nearby retailers and those were the ones we were drawn to. In fact, there were over 200 booths, so it took quite awhile to look go through them!
I have to be honest. . .this lady and her booth were the main reason we attended this sale!!!
This is Susie and she owns SCHAEFER HOUSE in Jefferson City, Missouri. Her store is filled to the brim with great items for the home. . .from furniture to seasonal decor and so much more in between!!!
For her booth at this sale, Susie shares wonderful seasonal finds!
I love her Christmas greenery ,and even though I have already purchased lots of it from her in the past, I managed to bring home some more !!! :)
The boutique also includes Marillac's Enchanted Forect. There were a lot of decorated trees and wreaths being auctioned with the proceeds benefiting Marillac, which provides mental health-care services for children.
