Last week on Urban Farmhouse’s blog she mentioned a friend’s barn sale that was going to be held on the weekend. BTW, if you haven’t been to the Urban Farmhouse store’s site you have to peek in. She has some very cute stuff in there.
So I got up extra early on Friday and drove over to check it out. And. It. Was. Spectacular.
The barn was located in the picturesque town of Granville, Ohio. On the drive there, as I got closer to the sale, they had signs pointing me in the right direction and each sign had a huge bouquet of dried hydrangea tied to it. That alone told me that I hadn’t made a wrong decision in driving all the way out here.
Turning into the driveway of the beautiful old barn we were met by a man waving us in on horseback. As I stepped inside the barn I was transported to vintage heaven. There were screen doors, silver platters, furniture, industrial looking baskets, skeleton keys, shiny brite ornaments, rolls of vintage wallpaper and more. Everywhere I looked there were more and more great finds.
I could easily have bought just about everything in there, but I had to limit myself to just a few items. Christmas is coming up, so didn’t want to blow $500.00 in one shot (and on items just for me, me, me).
This is part of what I bought.
And it was only (cough, cough) $20.00. I will admit that I have had second thoughts about having bought this, because it is something I could so easily have made myself. But sometimes you need to just buy yourself something that makes you smile. And every time I look at this I grin!
This will be sitting on the Thanksgiving table this year. Green beans and corn I think.
I learned from another blogger that they are supposed to repel spiders and since I have a ton of spiders in the basement right now I just had to buy them. 3 for $1.00.
And maybe the nicest part of the sale was when I left. At the door I was met by a nice older gentleman and a boy with a Kawasaki Mule utility vehicle type thing and they loaded my purchases up on the back and drove me down the hill to my car. It was just so darn cute! I mean you’re shopping out of a barn and they have all the amenities of Macy’s.
