Tag Sale 101

It's funny, the term "tag sale" is so common to me however I've had several friends ask, "what exactly is a tag sale?".  I didn't stop to think that some of my friends might not be as familiar with that term as I am.  This tag sale will be a mix of vintage treasures acquired during many adventures and newer items from some favorite stores that are just gently used but in very good condition. 

Why have a sale you ask?    There are 3 answers to that question:
  • I have a passion for finding objects from the past, repurposing them, giving them new life and mixing them with modern pieces to create fun unexpected spaces. 
  • Also, I suffer from OCD, Obsessive Compulsive Decorating.  My house is continually evolving and my family has just come to accept this as a way of life.  Because of this condition, I need a means to move new things in and other things out......hence the need for a sale.
  • Last but not least, the sale is not just a hodgepodge of randomness, it is a calculated grouping of objects that all work together to create what I've come to call Gogo Style.  I guess I feel the need to share this style with my family and friends because I truly believe it infuses fun and happiness into your least it does for me.
How would I describe Gogo Style? I would say it is a balance between the clean lines of mid-century modern, the bold glamour of Hollywood Regency and a splash of Palm Springs chic.  If this sounds like foreign language to you, still come and check it out.  You may be surprised by what you find. 

Here are a few Pinterest pics that I think capture this style:

A barcart is always a must
