3 weeks to go!

Here we are just three weeks away from our third annual Barn Sale! Vendors are picking their favorite items for the Barn Sale, and we’re busy making signs and roping off booth spaces and getting ready for y’all!

Here are a couple more sneak peeks for the show. (That’s pEEk, not peAk as I had originally typed last time! Ugghhh. Typos really bug me. Especially when I make them. Thank you for reading on anyway.) On to the peeks…
Sharon says it’s not hard to find great antiques and special trinkets from days gone by. But she does have a hard time deciding how to choose what to bring for the sale! She has so much to choose from in her store off Hwy 87 in Adkins.  You will fall in love with Sharon and her daughter Annette (one of at least 3 Mother daughter duos represented at the show) as her bubbly personality and winning smile will keep you smiling long after you shop through her great items!

I wanted to give you a taste of what you will see in her booth. Or, at least, what I think she should bring to her booth! I fell in love with that little pony. He was the cutest thing, perfect for a little cowgirl or cowboy wearing some boots and jeans. He was sturdy, too- you won’t find any new ones around like him!  I had to have my husband carry him outside so I could get some light to show him off for the picture. Adorable!  And glasses and plates- find what you need to add to your collection- or start a new one!  The record player- Just makes me want to put one on to spin and dance around the kitchen floor- I do have some old vinyl records around here……

Looking to add a little western pizazz to your home? Dana with Cowflage has tons of ideas! Everything from pillows to cowhide bedspreads to window treatments. And purses and totes. They do beautiful custom designs and are ready to let you browse their photos for inspiration- you might be inspired and give her an idea for a new creation!  I’ve carried a purse from her for over 10 years now- and still to this day get compliments on it! 

They will have ready-made items to take home as well, so bring your ‘old’ purse so you’ll feel good about picking out a new one from Cowflage!  Dana will be here with her sister- whom we will highlight in another post- We are glad to have them here for the third year in a row!  I’ve been told they are going to have their bucket of ropes again for the little buckaroos in your life- I’m sure my little guy will be one of the first ones to dig in and find the perfect one to practice his roping skills with!

The days are going by oh so quickly- We hope to see you in just a few short weeks!!!!!
Mark your calendar and tell family and friends.

Busy at the Barn,
Suzanne & Tracy
