Domino tag sale

This morning, my friend Leigh and I went to the Domino Magazine tag sale. We arrived at 10:30, and the lines were loooooooong. (They went around the corner and down the block!) We chatted with the people around us, and it was exciting to meet a few Cup of Jo readers.
This adorable foursome made out with some good loot.
This girl was especially sweet in her braids and trench. She reminded me of Paris.
The sale was held at the swanky 19th-century brownstone of Tom Delavan, Domino's former editor at large. He seemed like a nice guy and was smiling the whole time.
Once we got inside (at noon), the rooms were packed.
Everything had been picked over, but it was still fun to peek around.
Leigh and I liked these rugs--especially the blue and white--but they were priced at $850. Ouch!
It was cool to see Tom Delavan's rad house. You'll notice his tree wallpaper, a long-time blog favorite.
Polar bear, rarrrr!

Bottom line: A fun spectacle but only the early birds caught the worms. Enjoy the rest of the weekend! xoxo

What were they doing with the proceeds?

Leigh said...

Love the pics, Joanna! So glad to have experienced the tag sale with you :) It was fun! XOXO.

Joanna Goddard said...

i *think* the proceeds were going to themselves -- it was their personal furniture, clothes, etc. -- but i might be wrong!

LouDuk said...

Wish there was stuff like that around here!

Caitlin said...

Thanks so much for filling us in!! Domino was such an amazing magazine, and unfortunately I couldn't make the tag sale, but I was so glad to get a peek!!

Miss Jo said...

Melissa said...

katie diana said...

i made out with a great jonathan adler pillow and i think i saw you on the way out. we {apartment 10 roomies} got there at 9:37am and the line was already intense.

note to self {and others} arrive at future tag sales EARLY!

Kelley at My Island Wedding said...

Well, hope you had fun anyway!!! If I didn't have 2 kids in tow, I would have made the trek from L.I.!!!

abby said...

it was intense no! i was there at 910 and when i got in all was gone really, except mr polar bear who stole my heart and nearly my good sense. katie i had that pillow in my hands, 50 was a bit rich for my recessionista sensibilities but im happy it has a good home :)

anna/village vegan said...

I saw you there (jeans, converse, white day coat, right?) but I was too shy to say hello!

I was kind of underwhelmed by the sale...the only thing they had left by the time I got in at noon was fabric. Which was handy since I need to make some curtains, but still not terribly exciting. Oh well!

Nicole Marie said...

ohh man!!! i'm so jealous! even though you didn't make it for the good stuff!!

can't wait to see your picks from paris!!

Dream Sequins said...

Holy moly. Seems like you would have to camp out in front of the sale to pick up the good stuff. Great pictures! Thanks for sharing!

Ann-Michelle said...

Oh I love Domino.

elle moss said...

so jealous!

Jamie's Jewels said...

Looks like you had a lot of fun!

samantha hahn said...

great pics....it was a nice "waiting on line" day. The weather was nice. Love that girl in the plaits! I got stuck at home working but thanks for sharing this...wish you came home with a gem.

sendingpostcards said...

looks like fun! i wish i was in nyc (and not here, where it snowed today!) the line looks like the daily lines to get into the h&m in tokyo!

Leigh said...

How amazingly fun. I would want everything. :)

franki durbin said...

Joanna, can you hear me crying? Can you hear me wailing that I wasn't spied in those photos with my mirrored tables and my bold ikat print toss pillows? Ahhh, to live in the land of sample sales.

Looks like lots of fun. Surprised I didn't see any black eyes or bruises, but those seem to be reserved for the Choo, Louboutin, Manolo closeout sales. You know...where the elbows REALLY come out. LOL!

purple area said...

Looks really interesting, great pics.

Joanna said...

Thanks for the sneak peak, Joanna. That line is insane in the membrane!

Kwana said...

Thanks so much for sharing. I wanted to go on down but slept too late. Now I know I would have had to have slept over night down there.

Anonymous said...

hasn't anyone questioned that they were selling product they received from photo shoots? Shouldn't the products have been sent bak to their manufacturers?

Sammi said...

Looks like an awesome time was had even by people who didn't manage to get anything.

thevintagechair said...

Oh I bet it would've been so cool to have been able to go! Seems crowded though!

Char said...

that's what I would have figured too - the earlys get the bargins. Bummer. but it looks fun.

You Are My Fave said...

Oh, how fun. It would be completely worth it just to take a peek of that beauty of an apartment.

Jeanneoli said...

This would have been a blast! Glad you had a good time.

Sarah said...

Looks fun! Wish I could have gone!

Bright Light Warrior Nika Marie said...

Wish I could have been there. You took some really good pictures to capture the mood.

Phone with a Cord said...

um woah! I had no idea that this happened. I went at 3pm and the rush was over :) I guess I missed all the fun!

Amanda said...

Tee hee. I see me in one of those pics :).

Glad you had fun.

BetterHomeNoGarden.com said...

I walked away empty handed but the Tom said 90 percent of the items sold! I got to chat with Tom and he's super nice.

Anonymous said...

I miss Domino so, much! Yesterday at B and N I wondered aimlessly through the Home section...fruitless. At least I went home with a cd and a movie. *Sigh* I'm still grieving.

melissa davis said...

Oh, I was so sad I couldn't go to that!! (But I knew it would be utter insanity!)

chloejessica said...

Thanks for sharing! Cool to see photos sense I live in FL! :)

Good-Grace said...

oh my gosh!!! That looks like it would have been a lot of fun!

E said...

Oh man. My friend and I were planning on going, and then decided against it and went to a bunch of Brooklyn flea markets and craft fairs instead.

Did you find any goodies?

jesicola said...

Great meeting meeting you! xo the girl with the round wicker table thing :)

AmericanGypsy said...

It was so much fun! I scored an orange table from Shine Home and met so many wonderful people! Thanks, former Domino editors, for keeping us connected!

Amanda said...

To the Anonymous that questioned them selling products from photo shoots: there is more than one possible answer to this. One is that I heard they were selling their own personal belongings, in which case this is obviously not a problem. But also, manufacturers often tell magazines and other companies (like distributers) to keep samples, because no one wants to bother with the shipping prices. If you think about it, shipping costs are often equal to the price of producing the product itself. If that's case, the products were essentially theirs anyway :)

This looks like it was a lot of fun- too bad you didn't get anything awesome but I'm glad you got to look around and share.

sneakers shoes She continued,
"Why...? Don't you need someone to pose as your girlfriend this year?" Then he answered, "No, there is no need for that anymore......"
Before he can continue, he was interrupted, discount nike shoes"Oh yes! Must have found a girlfriend! nike shox r4 You haven't been searching for one for the past years, right?" The man looked up, as if he has struck gold, his face beamed and looked directly at the drunken girl. tn dollarHe replied, "Yes......you are right! I haven't been looking for anyone for the past years."
With that, the man darted across the floor and out the door, cheap nike shoesleaving the lady in much bewilderment. He finally realized that he has already found his dream girl, and she was.....the Vancouver girl all along! The drunken lady has said something that awoken him.
All along he has found his girl.nike tennis shoes That was why he did not bother to look further when he realized she was not coming back. It was not any specific girl he was seeking! cheap nike shoxIt was perfection that he wanted, and yes.....perfection!!
Relationship is something both parties should work on. Realizing that he had let away someone so important in his life, he decided to call her immediately. His whole mind was flooded with fear.free shipping shoes He was afraid that she might have found someone new or no longer had the same feelings anymore..... For once, he felt the fear of losing someone.
As it was Christmas eve, the line was quite hard to get through, especially an overseas call. He tried again and again, never giving up. Finally, he got through......precisely at 1200 midnight. He confessed his love for her and the girl was moved to tears. nike shoes It seemed that she never got over him! Even after so long, she was still waiting for him, never giving up.
He was so excited to meet her and to begin his new chapter of their lives. He decided to fly to Vancouver to join her. It was the happiest time of their lives! nike discount shoes But their happy time was short-lived. Two days before he was supposed to fly to Vancouver,cheap puma shoes he received a call from her father. She had a head-on car collision with a drunken driver. nike shox shoes She passed away after 6 hours in a coma.
The guy was devastated, as it was a complete loss. Why did fate played such cruel games with him? He cursed the heaven for taking her away from him, denying even one last look at her! How cruel he cursed! How he damned the Gods...!!nike free shoes How he hated himself....for taking so long to realize his mistake!! That was in 1996.
The moral of this story is :
Treasure what you have...
Time is too slow for those who wait;
Too swift for those who fear;
Too long for those who grief;
Too short for those who rejoice;
But for those who love...
Time is Eternity.
For all you out there with someone special in your heart, cherish that person, cherish every moment that you spend together that special someone, for in life, anything can happen anytime. buy shoes onlineYou may painfully regret, only to realise that it is too late.
