Engagement Ring Trends 2015

by Jenny Bryde 7. June 2015 16:50

What in the world is going on on our left ring fingers?  The classic solitaire reigns as the go-to favorite of the ring shoppers of the world, but in 2015, ring selection has become a little more varied and a lot more fun!  Check out some of these fun ring trends of 2015.  

How about these wildly fun bands?  Nothing boring here.  Stackable or individually worn, they are all very stylish.

Who says you have to party solo?  In this setting, a larger diamond is surrounded by other smaller stones.

A stone for every color.  Don't be afraid to experiment with colors outside of the norms!

Diamonds that go all the way around!  Love it!

I saved my favorite ring find for last but not least.  This beautiful yellow stone-studded ring is such a lovely spin on an old favorite design.  Beautiful!

This Sale is Going to be Huge

by Jenny Bryde 2. March 2015 00:43

We are approaching a level of giddyness for this year's Bride and Groom Garage Sale.  We have always advertised by word of mouth, and our attendance has grown each time we've had the sale - both in number of sellers and number of attendees.  This year is gearing up to be an epic sale!  We are more than a month away, and at this point we have maxed out our number of available tables and are only accepting sellers on a waiting list.  Whoa!  That means we have 55 tables of sellers who will fill the Golden Leaf Convention Center from wall to wall!  This sale is going to be amazing!  

When registering, each seller has to describe what they will be selling, and we are going to have a huge variety of items available!  Dresses, linens, china, stationery, jewelry, vases, silk flowers, baskets, alters, and more!  Oh my!

If you are still hoping to be a seller, you can still register for the waiting list.  As we approach the sale, I will be in contact with all registered sellers.  If anyone backs out, we will open the table up to the next person in line.  

For those of you hearing of our sale for the first time and wondering what all the hullabaloo is about, let me sum it up in a nutshell:  Our sale makes it possible for married couples to sell their gently used and new wedding items in a garage sale style only on a massive scale.  We fill the Golden Leaf Convention Center in Davenport (next to Miller Time Billiards), and those who are getting married can come in and shop the sale to find amazing deals on beautiful items.  Everyone walks away satisfied!  It's such a fun event!

Details:  The sale is on Saturday, April 11th from 10-noon at the Golden Leaf Convention Center in Davenport.  The cost to shop the sale is $5 per person, and kids are free.  You are welcome to be in line before the sale, but the doors won't open until 10am.  There is an ATM on site if needed, and most sellers will be accepting cash only.  We encourage you to bring your own bags, boxes, or other means of carrying out your finds.  We've even had people bring wagons before!  

This event is a lot of fun for your family, fiance, or wedding party!  Come and shop our sale which wraps up in time for everyone to go get a nice lunch and enjoy the rest of their Saturday!  

We hope to see you there!  Please contact me if you have any questions about the sale - jenny@qcweddings.com
