Great Stuff and Red Tag Specials Too.

Its July sale time at Gypsy Lea's in Sauk Rapids. We are doing something that we have not done in our three years of selling. We are having a storewide Red Tag Sale. Now Gypsy Lea's traditionally has some of the lowest prices for furniture, repurposed, redesigned and recycled stuff and special objets d'art, but with the Red Tag Sale prices assigned to many of our items make things almost unbelievably low.

I forgot my camera when I was at the shop on Wednesday, so I didn't get photos of the initial set-up. I stopped by the shop on Thursday afternoon, on my way to Dave Miller's auction, expecting to find the set-up ready to photograph. Well they had one hell of a Thursday. There were already open spaces and many pieces had sold tags on top of the Red Tag. The rain on Thursday didn't keep the customers away, but it did discourage some from taking things home. The dealers had restocked and reset and were waiting for a number of husbands to appear to pickup the wives' purchases "on their way home from work".

Kris and Gypsy spent a number of hours last night resetting so the shop is again stuffed with many "new" Red Tag Specials. The shop will look different from my photos, but it will be just as great.
