Its Already Christmas at Gypsy Lea's

The November sale at Gypsy Lea's starts tomorrow morning. Gypsy and Kris have been working way too hard to get the place ready. I was there again today for about 6 hours, but I am not sure how much help I actually provide. I took these photos just before I left, so there is a cord hanging here or a stray lamp sitting there. It will look fabulous tomorrow, but it looks pretty damn good already.

It was 64* today and the afternoon capped off with some rain. Both are quite unusual for the tundra in mid-November. So we are working in our shirt sleeves getting parts of the shop ready for Christmas.

Here is the hog of the month. I am so pleased with the way it looks. It is a 4' by 8' butcher block top prep table from a steak house in downtown Minneapolis. It is very industrial chic and looks like it just jumped out of the pages of the Restoration Hardware catalog.

I have four steel stools with adjustable backs set up right next to the table. This thing will make a great kitchen center island in a huge kitchen.

A tree with licence plate ornaments.

My hospital chair waiting to be stretched out into a bed.

Mike's repaired sleigh utilized as a Christmas tree stand.

Kris' mantle with an Allis-Chalmers grill as a screen.

It seemed like a good IDEA when I bought it.

Robelyn - The green bins sold on Friday. The new owner is going to use them in her family room. The big screen TV will sit on top.
