Pretty Sale Photos {Melissa Click Photography}


Let me tell you a story...a story about one of the kindest things anyone has ever done for me. When I announced my sale, I had no idea so many people would be interested in it. Turns out some of you all are as crazy about vintage and home decor as I am : ) But I especially had no idea anyone from beyond Wichita would want to make a trip just for the sale. I mean seriously. But one kind, sweet woman did. Her name is Melissa Click, owner of Melissa Click Photography in Tulsa, Okla., and picture taker extraordinaire.

I had never met her, never emailed with her, nothing...but she reached out to me offering her amazing services the day of the sale. She wanted to drive all the way from Tulsa just for my sale. I was floored. Blown away, actually. The kindness of strangers is still alive and well my friends, and it's beautiful.

She is SO talented! She and her friend Marley drove up to Wichita, stayed the night, and arrived bright and early as we were setting up. Or, I should say, as I was running around like a crazy woman barking orders at my husband and helpers, trying not to be stressed out, but basically acting like a nut : )







She and Marley were so kind and gracious. They spoke sweet and calming words, gave such sweet compliments, and helped me feel more at ease and confident as everything was coming together.  







Not to mention, aren't these photos to. die. for?? I mean seriously - gorgeousness on a whole new level!







I am so completely grateful Melissa was kind enough to reach out to me! It was probably the thing I was most grateful for throughout the day, because I never really got to "look" at everything and take it all in before the crowds came and it was all, well, gone. I was so thankful we already had beautiful, professional photos of everything. And it was so nice that I didn't have to try to be the photographer in the midst of getting everything ready. Such a blessing!

So the moral of this little story is...kindness does immeasurable good. Melissa's kindness to me has actually made me stop and ask how I can be more generous, more giving, more thoughtful. It was so amazing to be the recipient of such a selfless act, and I would love to pass it on!

  2. I am so inspired by your sale!! I have been torn between trying out a booth space, or doing a once or twice a year local show, but I think what you did is a great idea!! I would love to know more on how you handled the transactions. It looks like you did cash and a square? Did you keep record of what sold, or hold on to the tags of sold items? Did you do receipts?
    It looked like it turned out wonderfully! If you have another, I'll have to drive up from Tulsa to check it out! :)
