I’m a little late getting this one out today. I really DID NOT think I would be live on Instagram for nearly an hour and half. EEEP! This was my very first real ‘live’ video and I had no idea what to expect. I’m such an Instagram newb, I said things like, “How do I get the screen to flip around?” and “Does anyone know if I can save this thing after?” (Spoiler alert: flip with the arrow symbol , go figure, and yes, you can save it, go figure). If you tuned in live, thanks so much for being there! I really hope it was helpful. If you haven’t had a chance to check the videos out, you can do so with the links below. I had some technical difficulties with the one on the outlet side, so I had to repost. Luckily, I recorded a backup, but that means you’ll be seeing some of my notifications pop up 😅 Moving forward, I may oscillate between doing a live for one visit and doing the blog post the next, because doing both is a lot. I also used up almost all my data. Gulp. I may need to ask if these stores have free wifi…

I confirmed that the best day to check out the chair pop up side is Tuesday. They get their pop up deliveries on Mondays (closed that day), so Tuesday morning is your best bet. This day is also your chance at finding dining chairs. They got roughly 30 dining chairs this week that were purchased pretty much instantly. They mentioned the lines have been getting pretty long these days- sometimes upwards of 40 people! Here is a real life photo a friend sent one morning, so get there early.
I went over to the outlet side, fired off my photos, and then approached one of the wonderful women, Roxanne, that works there. She has always been so helpful and nice every time I’ve come in, so I locked in on asking her if I could go live and show all of you their store. She asked if I was That Outlet Girl. What a real trip! Is it just me or does it make this more official? Then again, she might have also seen my flier saying I was going live over there today, HA! She said it wouldn’t be a problem at all to give a little tour, and you all know the rest if you were able to tune in. If you missed it, fear not. There will be more. It was mostly just me bumbling around and digging through bins and wallpaper and squeezing myself between coffee tables. It might be better if you didn’t see it, actually. After the live, I was able to meet the store manager, Meredith, and she was also just so kind and welcoming- even gave me a hug! She was really supportive of what I am doing here- connecting you all to quality home and furniture pieces for a more affordable price. I also got approval to share some exciting news:
THE POP UP IS EXTENDING UNTIL THE END OF SEPTEMBER!
So you know that panicked frenzy many of you might have been feeling? No need! Let’s all let out a collective sigh of relief and sleep a little bit better tonight knowing things will stay put for a bit longer. On that note, I likely won’t be by weekly yet, since that would be 8 weeks of back-to-back visits and that’s maybe
stalker status a bit much. But once we are in the final stretch, I’ll prioritize that weekly check in. Does that work for all of you?
Anyway, I’m abruptly ending this post because I am tired and need to put my kids to bed. I’m still caught in that viscous nightly cycle of young kid bedtime shenanigans. You know, where they suddenly have no idea how to do basically anything and stretch the whole ritual out as long as humanly possible with just “one more trip to the bathroom.” You know exactly what I’m talking about. Well, wish me luck…
