This past week, after living in this area for 15 years, I heard about a "barn sale at Spring Creek" taking place this weekend. I couldn't believe I was just now learning about this gathering of crafty, vintage, and antique treasures, since this is their sixth year of operation!
I started researching exactly where this barn sale was located and ran across this youtube of the event filmed two years ago. It gave us a good flavor of what we would experience! So we made definite plans to go check it out!
There were about 30 or so vendors set up in the grassy area out behind the barn and lots of cars arriving: I loved the unique and creative green pumpkin Entrance display: Granny and I were ready to tackle the Barn Sale! Always the sales person, Granny brought one of her Gathering Baskets to carry around.
Just in case someone asked her which vendor was selling that beautiful basket, she could reply that she made it and would gladly make them one! Hannah and Granny took advantage of this Fall Prop Photo Op setup by Valley Heirlooms -- great display! This was a favorite booth, too, (scripted grain & co.). I always love signs and word plaques like this: A few vendors were also set up inside the barn...this is the back entrance. I loved seeing some fall display ideas to incorporate here at our house: Closer photo of the back door to the barn. I loved everything about this venue:
I bought a few gift items from this vendor, Embellish Decorating, and it was my favorite booth at the Barn Sale: This is another area of this vendor's wares--a display of wire pumpkins: Flowers for sale! Beautiful Globe Amaranth blooms:
And now I'm in the mood for fall decorating...first I'll put up my hanging yellow mum baskets on the front porch that I purchased today. Then I'll go pick some goldenrod in the garden and put it in a huge glass antique jug I purchased long ago at Toots Creek. That's a good start!
All in all, today was such an enjoyable excursion!
