I love Church Barn Sales!

Every year where I live one of the local churches hosts a huge barn sale. It has gotten to be such a huge event that it is now held at the fair grounds. Luckily for me I only live 10 minutes down the street. So of course I went..yipee!! I found so much stuff there at great prices that my head was spininng. On the second day everything is half price so of course I went then too! My husband was sweet enough to watch our kiddos that I got the luxury of browsing through all the junk & furniture by myself. That's right, you heard it....just me,three building of other people's cast-offs & my pocket full of cash. You can say that I did some damage, but everything was cheap! I got a glass cloche,an old checkerboard,2 small vintage silver serving dishes,2 baskets,an old typesetter's drawer,2 working light fixtures,a huge pile of vintage sheet music, misc. vintage fabrics & lace,a vintage book that lists birth dates with flower planting times for those months,a funky shade from bombay kids, & last but not least a victorian footstool. I have plans for everything too! :) I'm also proud to say that the most expensive item was only $7.00, so hubby even thought that I did well. I will be posting pictures of everything when I'm done so you can all see what I had in mind. I would have bought more my but bag was stuffed & my arms were full & dying from hauling all of my loot! :)





I'm still thinking about the old funky chair that I passed up on the first day only to find it gone the following day :(......will I ever learn?.......

  3. Wow, what a great haul. And even better, it sounds like so much fun exploring all the junk. Wish I could have been there!

  4. The footstool is wonderful! I wish we had things like this for our church garage sales (which I usually end up in charge of), but all we get are moldy shoes and polyester suits! Will be watching to see what you do with these finds!
