Barn Sale Time!!

Over the weekend was the Spring Barn Sale.
So.Much.Work.
And So.Much.Fun.!!

We hoped and prayed for good weather and we got it. 80 degrees and sunny.
As before, we were so impressed and humbled at the support from the community.
Shoppers came from all around and we heard loads of great feedback.

My friend/go-fer/favorite assistant, Erica, took most of the photos because I was tied to my table talking to guests all day.
She kept grabbing my camera and running off, which was so appreciated because otherwise I'd have no photos!






People rode in on horses! Love it.




Amy and Amy and me.





The part of the day where this mama's heart burst into a million mushy pieces:
Someone came to me and said that The Baby had set up his own "booth"... a wagon.
He was selling things he found in the kitchen: a strawberry, a few apples, pieces of Cookie Crisp cereal.
Seriously, y'all. I can't even handle the sweetness.



It was such a great day. The vendors were amazing.
People are already asking about the Fall sale.
I'm sunburned, exhausted, and still recovering from the weekend.
But it's good. Really good.

Ah! I had a few friends who made it and SO wish I still lived in the area. It looks like there was a TON of fantastic items!

Looks like it was fun. We soooo wanted to make it, but unfortunately decided we needed to save the gas & spending money and put it into some much needed yard work. Hope it was a success for everyone :) Lisa

What an aweseom day! The weather, the people, the STUFF! Wish I were closer, I definitely would have been there. And how precious that your son set up a booth too. I would have bought anything from him. :)

Elizabeth @ My Life, Such as it is... said...

So how much did The Baby make? I love that he had a book with him for reading between customers. Quite an enterprising young man. Bet his siblings wished they'd thought of it!

Sarah said...

Wish I lived closer! Maybe we can plan a vacay to Kansas in the fall!
Except when you say fall, can fall be the last of August/first of September. My husband is a farmer and we don't travel in the spring and fall. Just kidding!

He will always be "the baby" ;)
I would've given him $10 on cuteness alone. Seriously. Too. Much. Cuteness.
Looks like a wonderful day....

I felt priveledged when he asked me to watch his "booth" when he decided to play. Although I may owe him some money...I think Lilo made off with his Cheetos on my watch :0( -Lisa Stoppel

It was fabulous, again! I really really really hope that I can finally be a vendor at the fall one - pick a date soon so that I can plan for it, will you? ;)

Congratulations on another job well done!!!

Jennifer said...

It was a good way to start off Mother's Day weekend. Enjoyed shopping and love all my treasures I got. I love my antique wooden baby cradle - can't wait to fix it up! Thanks for all your hard work putting this together. It was fun to shop and not be so crowded.

Are you sure you can't sell us a piece of your land. I just love all the trees and the creek.
