Bridal Junk in the Trunk Event - This Weekend


Just a reminder the Junk in the Trunk event is happening this weekend.  If you have bridal stuff to sell or you are looking for a few offbeat additions to your decor - you should check this out.  All of the details are listed below.... 

Call your Grammy and tell her to pull out the good stuff… it's time to make a little cash. This April 1st from 12pm to 6pm, we'll be holding our first Bridal Junk in the Trunk Bonanza–an event that will allow to-be-brides to come shop for those must-have items for their wedding and recent brides or everyday collectors to unload their treasure while making a few extra bucks.

You've browsed the forums, scoured craigslist and even hit up ebay, but there's something about not only seeing an item in person, but seeing it set up just how you picture it in your mind at your wedding. That's what we'll do for you– this won't be set up like your neighborhood yard sale. Nope, we're going to use the items that you drop off to create beautifully styled tables so you can see just how all these pieces can look at your own wedding.

If you're interested in selling some of your goods, contact to get your items registered, a vendor number and your paperwork all set to go before March 24, 2012. All we'll need is your contact information, a list of your items and photos of those items if you have them. There will be a small fee based upon the number of items you have to sell, which we can figure up for you quickly after you send over your inventory. If you need help with how to price your items, we're happy to help with that, as well.

Head over to our Facebook event page to RSVP (sellers and buyers)

If you have any questions, feel free to email

Meet the Interns.... Lindsey Sauter

Lindsey tells us five things about herself....
1) I am a second year Communication major at Miami University and absolutely love it!  I feel very lucky to have found a college that I truly love and feel at home at.
2) Some (or all) who know me well would say that I have a ridiculous love for Taylor Swift.  This started when I was 14 years old and I’ve loved her music ever since!  I’ve even gotten to meet her a few times… the fact that she’s just as nice in person as she seems through her music makes her even cooler to me!
3) I absolutely LOVE South Carolina.  Everything is so beautiful down there, from the beaches to the plantation-style homes to the palm trees… I love vacationing there!
4) I’m the type of person who listens to Christmas music before Thanksgiving… I am crazy about the Christmas season!  Last year, I decorated my entire dorm with Christmas lights, paper snowflakes, garland, and a Christmas tree.  This year I decided to tone it down and just stuck to some lights, a tree, and some yummy-smelling candles.
5) My method of relaxation is baking.  I love finding fun new recipes, especially from Pinterest!  I usually end up giving most of treats to my boyfriend because if I don’t, I can’t resist eating them all myself…I have a major sweet tooth. 

Get to know Lindsey a little better...
Favorite song? My favorite song tends to change by the week... but right now I'm really loving "Not Over You" by Gavin DeGraw!
Books or magazines? It takes a lot to get me really hooked on a book, but I recently finished The Hunger Games and am re-reading it in anticipation of the movie, so definitely The Hunger Games!
Chocolate or Vanilla?  CHOCOLATE.  Godiva, please!
Coke or Pepsi?  Coke!
UC or Xavier? My mom is a UC alum, and my house has always rooted for the Bearcats.
Skyline or Gold Star?  I enjoy both, but would choose Skyline over Gold Star any day.
Describe your personality in five words or less: Driven, outgoing, organized, happy, enthusiastic.
Describe your style in two words or less: Girly/classic
Favorite color: Pink
Favorite wedding trend: I love it when a bride has her bridesmaids choose their own dress style within the same color family.
