1920s Farmhouse and Barn Sale ...

Ah ...Does the title of this post just not make your heart swoon with excitement ...!!!

It did Abbey's and Mine ...when a friend of ours told us a few weeks back about an upcoming sale that would be held in an authentic 1920s Farmhouse and had a Barn and Wood Garage to boot !!!

I'm telling you my tummy had the rumbly's just like Winnie the Pooh ...

And the week leading up to it I couldn't contain my excitement.

So Last Friday off we went before the sun rose in the sky to grab ourselves a place in line hoping we could be one of the first few to enter and get to choose some of the prime pieces.

Indeed we were numbers 6 & 7 In line and they let the first 20 in and closed the gate behind us ...Wooo Hoooo were we so thrilled !

So Abbey went in the house ..I took the garage and barn and Papa Fred stood guard over all of our fun finds ..without him ..our finds would never make it home with us Sad to say.

So Our truck came home full ..An antique Pie safe an old rustic bow front cabinet ..Wire egg baskets and feeders, Vintage Fabric ..Old farm dresses ..and so much more that it makes my heart swim just to write about it. and I want to go back for more !!!!

So I just finished up listing in our Etsy shop the first of some of our finds and thought I would share these vintage beauties with you all ..

It's spring and time for color ..and what says spring better than some vintage Fabric ..

A stack of old vintage feedsack fabric, cotton print, and novelty seersucker ... all in bright, colorful designs ...

The strawberry print above is my absolute favorite

Florals that are so happy !

And little lambs that remind of you little pitty pattering feetsies !

And just in time for Easter ..

what better to find than a whole stack of vintage Easter baskets !

Positively sweet they are ..some are marked Japan and Occupied Japan ...and some are more colorful than others ..All perfect for Easter decorating or to use in your farmhouse kitchen the whole year through ...

These are just a few of the pieces from the Farmhouse and Barn Sale that I just finished listing in our Etsy shop today take a look at more of our offerings click HERE ... and check back for more this week ..!

Now I'm waiting for the next good sale ..wherever that may be ..LOL !!


I also listed a few of my newest handmade pieces ..

Sweet Magnolias Farm Soldered Window Charms.

If you've seen the large windows I offer ..well these are my miniature version of them I am now offering.

Each one is made from an authentic pane of glass from an antique window.

I Make the custom graphics ...and have a special process of addding them to the glass.

Each piece is soldered ..and Prisms or Keys or a unique vintage ensemble hangs from the bottom ..while a sweet seam binding tie adorns the top for hanging ..

Our Window charms can also be found in our Etsy shop ...

Happy Spring to all of our Dear Kindred Friends ...

Blessings ..Sara
