It has been a terrific success, ensuring that we will hold another one in a couple of months. The weather held despite some menacing-looking clouds. I had several customers drive over from as far away as two hours, many expressing their disappointment that when they got there, a lot of stuff had already sold. I didn't open until 8am, and most of the great stuff was gone by about 9:30, so what can I tell you? Come earlier next time.
This is where we had the sale, the property belongs to a friend of mine, keeping vendor fees and costs low for everyone.
This was the reason I called it a barn sale, the term alone stumped lots of people. We were originally going to hold it in the barn, which he has converted into a virtual showroom for his vintage Volkswagens (another reason why I love this guy) but when we realized how much stuff we actually had, we knew we would be better off under the huge pecan tree.
This is a shot of some of the things Cassie brought, including a gorgeous bench made from an old bed and some nightstands that were missing drawers, but she put little white containers in the spaces.
These are shots of Debi and Mary's spot, and you can see me taking a photo, blissfully ignorant that I'm in the mirror.
The last photos are of Sharon and her daughter's stuff. I didn't get pics of a great shabby dresser and some bed benches that sold before I took these shots.
