the "shop my closet" party

Last weekend I hosted a "Shop My Closet" party. I got the idea from a friend on Intagram who commented on a photo of my recently purged closet. I had planned on selling my clothes at Buffalo or Crossroads, but once I had the idea of a party where my friends could come shop my closet I began asking around to get an idea of how many people would actually be interested. To my surprise, so many friends said they would definitely love to participate, so it was a go.

The plan was to have it at my mom's house, since my condo is way too small for a big party. She ended up going all out and making tons of hors d'oeuvres and donating bottles of wine. All I did was bring the cheese, set up shop (many, many thanks to Kacie of Two Downings A Day for all of the hours of work you put into helping me prep!) and showed up.

I had very low expectations for the party. I thought I'd be lucky if 10 friends showed up and if I made a 50 bucks, but I was wrong! The party way exceeded my expectations as I hope it did everyone else's. It was also so wonderful to chat and hang out with Rachel of No. 17 Cherry Tree Lane (I love that woman!) and the beautiful Hayley of The Weekend File. I had such a fabulous time catching up with old friends, and hanging out afterwards and talking for hours with some awesome ladies. I am definitely going to do this again in the future. It was a fantastic idea.

I asked the talented Debbie Huber of Snapshots & Sunshine to photograph the party and I think she did an excellent job. Check out the photos!

And let me know if you would ever be interested in coming to my next party :)
