(Sneak Peek!) Annual Clearance Sale

Our Annual Clearance Sale is always a popular event at B. Whimsy. It’s your chance to score some awesome deals on items that we only markdown once a year – furniture, art, lamps, and more! Plus, a selection of things that have never been on sale before! We have some scratch and dent items – but mostly, they are items we sadly just don’t have the space for in our store. So, we hope to find them a good home during the sale!

This year, we are hosting our clearance sale during Dalhart’s Trail of Sales event on Saturday, June 6. We will be open regular hours on Saturday, 10 am – 4 pm. We’ll have lots of items out on the sidewalk, and the front part of our storage space next to the store open for you to shop in!

AND, for our wonderful customers who follow us on social media and who have joined our mobile community, you can shop the sale a day early with our VIP Shopping Pass! We will open the sale room from 1 pm – 4 pm on Friday, with hourly specials in store too! Sign up for our mobile community if you haven’t yet to be the first to know about our hourly specials. To join, text the word BWHIMSY to the number 40691 and follow the prompts.

VIP Shopping Sale

Here are a few sneak peeks of what we’ll have in the sale. We are posting more sneak peeks on our Facebook page too! If you see something there you like, you can leave a comment and buy it before the sale even starts!!

Baby Gifts

Baby Gifts at B. Whimsy

We are putting our entire selection of baby gifts on sale! This includes all of our Vera Bradley Baby and the popular Chewbeads! Most items will be about 60% off of regular price, so it’s a great time to stock up on gifts!


Artwork at B. Whimsy

This year’s sale includes A LOT of beautiful artwork, mirrors, and wall hangings! We have all different styles – florals, abstracts, landscapes, colorful, neutral, metal, panels, framed art, canvases… And the list goes on!

Get the colorful oil paintings on the left for $60 each (marked down from $145 each), or the floral panels on the right for $85 each (marked down from $219 each)!

Lamps and Decor and Pottery

The bulk of the the markdowns so far seem to be on various home decor items – trays, lamps, vases and urns, decorative books, picture frames, etc.

We will also have greenery and floral stems on sale. During last year’s Clearance Sale, we bundled together floral stems, for easy to make arrangements and decorating. These bundles were some of the most popular items – and we’re including them in this year’s sale too!

Home Decor by B. Whimsy

Art by Susan

One of our very favorites, on sale for the first time ever!! Our collection of Art by Susan frames, boxes, and decor will be on sale too! Up to 50% off these unique, hand painted items.

Home Decor by B. WhimsyFurniture

We almost NEVER put furniture on sale, and it is usually excluded from most of our coupons and discount events that we host throughout the year. We don’t have quite as much furniture in the sale this year as we did last year, but there are still some great deals!

We have several side and occasional tables. And my favorite – this set of chairs! I love the pattern and so wish I had a spot for them in my house!!

Furniture at B. WhimsyClothes, Shoes, Jewelry

We are still culling through and organizing our apparel and accessories – but let’s just say there will be a big selection at rock bottom prices. We will post more sneak peeks as we mark more items down!

Coffee + Candles

Our anniversary celebration week is winding down – and we can’t thank you all enough for celebrating with us at our events and participating online in our giveaways! It has been great to see so many of our favorite shoppers – and some new ones too!!

If you haven’t been able to make it into the store yet – we still have one more event for you! We are hosting a follow up Mariana Trunk Show tomorrow, during our Coffee + Candles event.

Jewelry at B. WhimsyWith the busy week of celebrations coming to an end, I’m excited that our last event focuses on something we all need a little more of – relaxation! I used to think that relaxation only came from fun escapes or trips to the spa. But, I’ve come to love finding a few moments of relaxation in everyday life; light a candle, sit, sip coffee, and just breathe.

During our event tomorrow, we are featuring all of our new candle lines (with buy one candle, get one 50% off!!) and Purpose Coffee – which is roasted here in Dalhart, with all proceeds going to support global missions programs.

Coffee + Candles at B. Whimsy

We’ll have refreshments, coffee + candle door prizes, and gift with purchase (while supplies last)! Our free Mariana Guardian Angel Bangle offer is back – get one of these sweet bracelets with your $150+ full price Mariana purchase (cannot combine with the $50 gift card coupon). We are also offering free sample bags of Purpose Coffee with your purchases!

About Purpose Coffee

Purpose Coffee partners with some of Dalhart’s missionaries who are living abroad to source ethically grown coffee from some of the best coffee growing regions in the world. It is roasted in small batches in Dalhart to ensure freshness and quality. All proceeds are used to invest in child wellness – such as orphanages, schools, and health initiatives.

Purpose Coffee at B. WhimsyWe are excited to have partnered with Purpose Coffee during our Anniversary Events. All of your coffee purchases at B. Whimsy have helped fund a water well in a rural community in Myanmar. (Read more about it, here!)

Purpose Coffee at B. WhimsyOur Favorite New Candles

The last several trips to Market, we searched high and low for fun new candles. We wanted ones that last a long time, small amazing, and come in cute or unique containers. Some of the new scents we found include Southern Sweet Tea, Tall Grass, Wild Green Fig – don’t they sound delightful?!

Here’s some of what we found:
