FOUR SALE: Taking Home The Silver

I've been wandering through the market for the past weekend mornings
with the motivation to master my walking-while-consuming-coffee-and-pastry skills,
get some "me" time while Tyler & Viola snooze,
and to find special pieces that can find a place in your home.

{So, I guess it's not exactly a selfless task.}

After my last FOUR SALE
full of pretty finds from Notting Hill's Portobello Road,
I learned two important lessons:

1. People really like English antiques.

2. They get pretty sad when they chance to get any
because the sale is already over.

So, as a perpetual people-pleaser,
I set out to reinvent the wheel
and give the people what they want.

This resulted in a couple of days 
of thinking through different formats & options....
and then one night, the answer was really obvious.

Here's what's going to happen:

It's all going to be sold via a Facebook page
 especially for FOURSALE.


Why move it from my blog you ask?

Well, for the silly sake of matching the section above, 
I'm going to give you two reasons:

1. It allows people to snag a piece 
if they are away from their computers
through commenting via the Facebook app...
which, as we all know, is 2408 times easier 
than commenting on blogger with your phone.

2. It will offer better notice when the sales start,
since people check Facebook about 2408 times
more in a day than this blog.

{I know, I know... people's priorities are way off.}

So go on to the new FOURSALE page
and check out the little goody I have waiting for you there.

And in the meantime,
let's take a quick trip through Notting Hill.

sorry ladies. this one's off the market. ;)

  5. From a new italian reader....thank you! I've been reading your blog and I find it really wonderful, plus I am almost ashamedto say that you know my country better than me, next time I'll go to Florence I'll use your tips (really, shame on me!)
    I've been in London several times, Notting Hill is one of my favourite places and surprisingly my boyfriend loves the Porto Bello Market, I don't know how it's possible but for the first time in our relationship he was the one dragging me around to shop...what to say? You are bookmarked! ;)

  6. You live in such a charming neighborhood! And this is such a wonderful idea, I'm excited to see all the pretty things you come up with!

  7. I'll take a chandelier, a fur coat, two small silver trays, one child size tea set, 4 spoons...oh aren't taking personal shopping orders?

  8. You're talking my language now! As I start thinking about what to pack for our move to London I've been wondering if I should bring my thrift store scores and estate sale finds with me, or look for new ones in the markets of London. I've been wondering about the prices, so it looks like they're good. How is the shopping for bigger things like furniture and art?


  9. I love your blog it's very interesting to read. ! I want to start a page as your ans recently I asked a web design company ELCO PLANET ( to develope the page for me.. I was just interested for web hosting.. can you please advice me about web hosting provider.. have you ever heard for offering hosting, alfa reseller hosting... ? thanks a lot

  10. You're killing me! I'm totally sad and homesick for my Notting Hill living days!


  11. We're visiting London for the first time in September and can't wait to check out the Portobello Market! Your pictures are making me even more excited!

  12. A year ago my husband and I went to Portobello Market and we just returned there last week for our second visit. It's one of my favorite places around the world to pick up antique, fun, unique items for our home!

  13. Beautiful Portebello Road! Love the furs and compasses. Just a little bit of everything for everyone there.


  14. I was lucky enough to score some beautiful silver in the last four sale but this is such a great idea! I lived just blocks from Portbello Road for three months this winter and your snaps make me miss it more than usual (which is hard to do!).
