Artisan Alert at the Barn Sale!

We've got some awesome Artisans to alert you about for this year's Barn Sale! The Barn will be full of artistic creations and one-of-a kind designs (70 vendors to visit with). You'll find lots of repurposed, upcycled, vintage, antique, and handmade goods. Take a look at a few of the Artisans we are happy to introduce you to this year.

Francesca is a fine jewelry artisan coming to the Barn Sale for the first time from San Antonio. Francesca uses primarily Argentium, fine and sterling silver, and the most interesting stones, glass, and crystal she can find. It is not uncommon for her to spend multiple days on one unique piece of fine jewelry. You'll be amazed at her creativity, her craftsmanship, and you'll LOVE her beautiful smile and warm personality.
