the mint julep june jaunt

Ever want to go shopping/thrifting with your bbff {best bloggie friend forever}? Ever want to skip tweeting/facebooking/skyping/posting, and actually talk face to face with that know, like what they did back in the pre-blog days? Ever want to spend a day with a bunch of friends who you physically just met so that they will peer pressure you into buying that tchotchke? Ever want to know my real name? :)

Well...June may be your lucky month. Gail @ My Repurposed Life and I are hosting our 1st ever get together in Louisville, KY & Southern Indiana. We have everything ready for you from swag bags to doorprizes to special discounts to wine & appetizers awaiting you at a boutique.

Here is a glimpse of where we will take you if you decide to come:
Peddlers Mall - Clarksville, IN
{one of the LARGEST flea market booth places with lots of buried treasure}

Salvation Army, Goodwill, etc - Southern Indiana
{um...of course they are on the list}

Old Time Pottery - Clarksville, IN
{huge and cheap...& filled to the brim with home decor}

Homegoods - Clarksville, IN
{we have a BRAND new store as of May...perfect for us to dive right into}

After our jaunt in Indiana, we will then make our way to Louisville, KY for some wine & appetizers while shopping, then a yummy lunch and then more shopping.
Regalo - Louisville, KY
{Voted Best Gift Shoppe in Louisville for 5 years...oh yes, and I am besties with the owners.
They can not wait to host us for some wine and appetizers while we browse.}

Lynn's Paradise Cafe - Louisville, KY
{for a yummy lunch - a quirky independent restaurant with a national reputation built on great food, wacky décor, and wild events...hmmm...sounds perfect for us.}

Red Tree - Louisville, KY
{a lovely store right next door to where Mr. B & I lived when we lived downtown in "NuLu." They have furniture & accessories so unique, you think it is antique.}

 So did that little tease inspire you even more to come join us? Oh wait....didn't I mention free stuff? Here is a glimpse of some goodies you will get just for showing up:
   ScotchBlue(TM) Painter's TapeScotchBlue(TM) Painter's Tape     
Still need more incentive to come to Louisville for a day trip? How about a $25 VISA gift card to help pay for your gas? of our lovely guests will win a VISA gift card. Now if you don't use it for gas and buy something during the day at one of the shops....hehe...we won't tell.
Ready to make your way to Louisville? Well, sign up fast my dears. We are limiting the group to 25.
As for details of times, initial meeting place and such, once you have signed up...we will go from there {for safety and organization reasons}. But if you are a planner like me, we will start around 10 o'clock with a scheduled late lunch and then finish up around 5 {but you are free to arrive and leave with what time works for you.}

Finally, check out what Gail has to say about the event might give you even more inspiration to sign up.

    I came across your blog through a google search and I was thrilled to see that we live close to each other! We just moved to Louisville back in Sept. We LOVE it here and I'm trying to find all the great thrifting / shopping places around.

    How did your Mint Julep June Jaunt go last year? Will you be doing this again this year? If so, I would DEF sign up to go :)

    I'm now a follower and I hope you have a wonderful evening! Take Care....
