Barn House Blast!

My oh my – did we have a glorious time at the Barn House season opening sale Saturday! Lisa and I hopped (well maybe not hopped at 5 a.m. in the morning!) in her car and hit the road. The early buying began at 8 a.m., and we wanted to see their barn in all its’ splendor. Joe and Jermonne live near Battle Ground, Washington. I had been following their blog for nearly a year, and then we met them in person at the Sand Point Antique Market in Seattle this last March. We loved their booth, and were smitten with them. Talk about a couple of charmers.

The setting was magical. Out in the farmlands, here was this barn styled to the high heavens. The outdoor vending area was lovely, and the refreshments looked divine. We bypassed all that to get a gander of the inside. Five other talented vendors (Sylvi, Natalie, Laurie, Debbie, Cindy, and Julie) had their vintage and handmade items incorporated into the setting. We spent over a couple of hours trying to absorb every original detail. I can’t think of another show I’ve been to that was styled with such freshness and beauty. Our hearts were aflutter because we weren’t seeing the same old stuff. Everyone was nice. We spent money. Got hugs from Jermonne! And sort of floated back to reality.

The rest of our road trip was tiptop as well - a Goodwill Outlet store, Burgerville and two church rummage sales. Wowie zowie – we had a grand day!

One of the benefits of standing in that long line at Barn House was getting to chat with you two! I'm still grinning, aren't you?
