So I went shopping on the weekend again. But with a little surprise in store.
So off I went. Landing a nice homemade mushroom variety, I head home when spotting a garage sale sign.
“Hmmm… I should stop. With the market coming up and all…”
But they were just wrapping up for the day and nearly shut down. Nooooo….
I shopped anyway. And threw a few things in the back of my truck, but it didn’t amount to much.
And that’s when I commented to the farmer how much I loved his farm.
“Any of your barns open with stuff?”
Doesn’t hurt to ask, right? So I was ready to roll out but kept shopping a little more. He finally caught wind of the type of
junk valuables I was after, when he asked if I wanted a barn tour after all.
I think the cloud of dust I left was a sure sign I was into it.
And then… I had to ask.
“You letting this go at all? This? How about this?”
But… I made it home with a few windows open along the way. It was a good GOOD day!
So we stopped at Tim Horton’s on the way for our breakfast biscuits (those are so good!), my dark roast one and one, his frozen lemonade, (promise a teen food and they will do nearly anything) and finally arrived.
Luckily, my boy found the stereo stuff table, and ended up buying his birthday gift right there saving lots of birthday money. Yes! No need to stop at an electronic store on the way home. Fab!
And if it doesn’t sell, I’m all to happy to keep it all! Again. 🙂
I’ll likely keep a few things, such as the sawhorses and metal handles, but most of all of this will be coming to The Olde Farmhouse Vintage Market May 30th.
So far I’ve only pressure washed a few things. I may do some painting or adding some hemp oil (affiliate link) to bring a few things back to life, but for the most part, I love everything the way it is.
It’s what you DO with it that really counts!
What’s your thought? Do you need to see this kinda stuff in action at a booth, or would you buy it piled like this?
But… there’s one thing that actually made my draw drop this weekend. And it was from the farm garage sale.
Trust me. He thought I was ‘mad’ with what I wanted to buy. I didn’t dare tell him I loved these ‘doors that needed a paint job!’
Aren’t they spectacular? I just want to hang them on a wall and stare at them. Or maybe I’ll make my way back with my good camera and take some real pictures…
I’m thinking I should buy him two new ones so he can ‘upgrade’… 😉
And as if that wasn’t enough… ready for one more mind bender?
But I’ll take the view this house has any day! 🙂
This stuff was the tone of barn wood! You just don’t see that all that often.
I’ve yet to have time to knock on this neighbour’s door, but you can bet I plan to. Wishhhh meeeee luck!
Yup, it was a pretty exciting weekend. Between the last haul and this weekend, it’s looking like a vintage market already.
And I haven’t even shown you what else I made lately… that’ll be next!
What would you be hauling home from this latest shopping spree?
One more thing! Locals, this one’s for you. Those attending The Olde Farmhouse Vintage Market, there’s a Facebook party going on Wed, May 20th with a TON of stuff being given away, starting at 7:30 PM pacific. My stencils will be in there too. Go play HERE!
