So….I Lied.

Earlier this week I announced The Hoard Sale wouldn’t be as “Hoardy” as the last one…

And I totally lied to you.  I am sorry.

I have come to terms with my crap that is being used and crap that is not being used.  And I realized that in fact I love the hunting (the thrill of the Thrift Store rush) more than the gathering (pulling stuff from my garage).

So my friends.

Everything is going.  Everything that is, that doesn’t have a home.

There are going to be lots of chairs like these:

Thrift Store Chair 006

Thrift Store Chair 011


And there are A LOT of these:


And this bed frame:



And I have a few of these mirrors and the desk and the chandy:



And A TON MORE.  Like a couple of armoires, a crapload of chairs, lamps, etc.  Then I was worried that I wouldn’t have enough stuff because I got so many emails from people that are coming, so I called in the troops.

Meet the troops:


Oh yes.  That is Brooke from All Things Thrifty.

All Things Thrifty Home Accessories and Decor

Also did you know that Brooke was the one that took my blog-ginity?  Its true.  First blog I ever read.

This thing is going to be awesome.

It is going to be at my house in St. George UT.  If you need my address you can email me (  and I will send it over.  The sale starts at 8:00 SHARP.  If it were me I would be there early but NO ONE will be allowed into the Fortress of Hoard (say that with a booming voice) until 8.


For everyone that is coming from out of town (or just wants to have a fun lunch!) we will be meeting up at Durangos at 1:00 for lunch!!  (And anyone that couldn’t come to the Hoard Sale is more than welcome to come!)

Make sure you follow VR on Facebook to stay update on the craziness if you cant be here!

See you guys tomorrow!!

Love  your  guts,  Mandi

    Ugh ugh ugh. Do you know how LONG I’ve been looking for those old gold frame thingies that you always find? Like TWO YEARS! They are NO WHERE to be found. Seriously. One of my bffs found ONE at a thrift store last year & she kept it for herself because she knew how long I’d been looking for one.
    Seriously…there should be a way for us who don’t live anywhere close to you where we can send you on thrift store runs for us & pay you to shop & then you send us the goodies :) Just a thought! You could be like a hoarder’s personal shopper!!!

  • Kara 18.05.2012 at 15:53

    Oh my gosh I am totally wishing I lived in St. George right now! Not just because I wanna buy some stuff, but because lunch sounds like so much fun!

  • KristenDavis 18.05.2012 at 16:04

    I want that chandy sooooooooo bad!!! I wish I lived anywhere near you cuz I would make the drive but it would be like a 2 day trip just to get there for me!!! sad day for me!

    you’re killing me. do you ship to michigan? 😉

  • Mrs. Holly K. 18.05.2012 at 16:11

    I just feel as if you should hold off until pioneer weekend when I’ll be in SLC which is a whole lot closer
    than where I am now which is Ohio. Maybe if I say pretty please…. PRETTY PLEASE!

  • Mrs. Holly K. 18.05.2012 at 16:12

    For the love of thrifting please!

  • sturdydesign 18.05.2012 at 16:19

    Are you freakin’ kidding me? Why don’t I live closer to you????? That green crushed velvet chair would so be going home with me. And those picture frames…Gah! This is severe torture, Mandi. Severe.

  • Ansley @ Fabulousified 18.05.2012 at 16:49

    I swear if I lived within a 6 hour radius I’d be there. I might have to camp out in your driveway over night…but then I’d get the first deals, right??? How far is Utah from WA State, anyway….?

  • Anonymous 18.05.2012 at 16:50

    Why do all the good bloggers live in Utah?

  • marty (A Stroll Thru Life) 18.05.2012 at 17:30

    Oh wish I was there. I absolutely love those frames, I want some. Hugs, Marty

  • Nikki @ the ambitious procrastinator 18.05.2012 at 17:37

    Seriously, I want to punch you in the face right now! Those frames are amazing, and I am in Denver :(. Maybe they shouldn’t be part of the hoard sale and should just be mailed to me! I suspect you will be done selling stuff pretty quickly and may even have time for a shower before your 1pm lunch.


  • Anonymous 18.05.2012 at 18:10

    I so want those chairs, but I live in Seattle. Why are you so far away?

  • Ashlee @ I'm Topsy Turvy 18.05.2012 at 21:04

    Kay Mandi that TOP chair- I want 2 of them, and I’m looking for a vintage couch to go in the same room, with decorative shape and gorgeous wood details in the legs and even around the top as well (I want to recover in a bright pattern)… Here is my board BUT I don’t know where to even start looking. I NEED YOUR HELP!!! I can’t come down this weekend because of my own garage sale so if you have what I want I can come down NEXT weekend and get them!

  • 18.05.2012 at 21:33

    If only I lived closer…this sounds like fun. And I want to buy pretty much everything you posted. Darn!

  • michelle@somedaycrafts 18.05.2012 at 22:50

    It actually makes me want to drive from Logan for hoarding and lunch! I am coming down there next week. Why didn’t you do it then? Torture!

  • rebecca @ older and wisor 19.05.2012 at 00:13

    If it did not take 1,927 hours to get to St George I would be getting in my minivan, driving through the night and relieving you of that green chair which I never knew I needed until now. EVEN THOUGH my hubby has forbidden any more furniture from entering our home. EVEN THOUGH I also have a garage full of thrifted treasures that have no where to go. EVEN THOUGH I swore when we crossed the Utah state line as we moved that I would never go back.

    Whoever gets that velvet temptress better keep their doors locked.

  • Sandi 19.05.2012 at 04:32

    I SO wish I was closer. I would probably buy everything myself!! No hoarding here!

  • Anonymous 20.05.2012 at 04:32

    I’m dying I missed out on the gold frames! And I live in Cedar, I would of zipped down if I saw this in time! There is always a next time… I guess. Hope it went well!

  • TMykula 22.05.2012 at 16:29

    I’ve never been so sad that I don’t live in Utah! I hope you made a bundle, more cashola to feed your habit 😉 Your poor husband, haha!!

  • garagesalesrus 23.05.2012 at 05:14

    Hey girl! Thanks for having the hoard sale! Still wishing I had been there earlier but I just got my post up about being there. It was so nice to meet you. Maybe we will bump into each other again around town!


  • Courtney @ Scraps and Scribbles 23.05.2012 at 18:15

    Why oh why must you be so far away?! I have been in love with that red desk of yours since I first saw that post. I would have snatched it up in a heart-beat! I’m sure it went to a good home, though.

  • Brandy Thixton 24.05.2012 at 02:27

    The frames!!! I’ve been looking everywhere!!! I wonder if I can talk my husband into driving from Tennessee to Utah for a yard sale…

  • Garage Sales R Us 24.05.2012 at 14:21

    Don’t know if you’ll see this but I lied. I have had some trouble with blogger erasing my post. I just re wrote this post for the third time. Here it is

No more of these HOARD sales without my being attend and load up! I don’t have the luxury of a D.I. down the street anymore. Boo hoo. I could have used every. single. one. of. those. chairs. grrrrrr.
