My Very Own Barn Sale....

Great Primative farm Table

Thats my barn at the end


Inside of my little barn

Is this the most awesome birdhouse you've ever seen! First thing that sold.
OMG How I love Old Tole Pieces Amazing Old Rocker from the 1800's

Old Cement Hen & Rooster still available

Amazing French Iron Crib with Cherubs SOLD


Shabby old White Motel Set... Sold



Great Funky Tole Candleabra
Well this last month I made a huge decision to leave the Antique store where I've been selling for 15 years and re-invent myself sort of. So I took my little barn where I stored all my merchandise (which was disgusting inside I might add) and had it refurbished, now its like I have my own little store to putter in and decorate (which I knew I would miss moving from the store) because you know its all about putting it together and walking away knowing that your space looks awesome, that gives you that creative fix we love. Now when I have my sales from the house its more inviting and intimate. I had a sale here yesterday and it was so successful and fun..here's a few pics of how it looked in the process of putting it together. Hope everyones having a wonderful 4th of July. Oh and if you live in the L.A. area and you want to be put on my mailing list for the next sale date just post me a message. Also feel free to ask about whats still available.

You had some awesome things for sale. Wish you could have loaded it up and brought it to Tx. I would have loved that bed, it was awesome. Also, congrats on the article in the magazine. Hope you've had a great 4th!

WE have a couple of gals in Fresno that do a monthly cottage sale...it is so fun.

I sale from a space but am thinking of having a Shabby garage sale and see how it goes.

The market here is so different though. People still love antiques but they are not as into the look that all we bloggers love.

Love the crib...but I see it sold :(

chickie said...

enjoyed reading your story.I am starting a new business blog hopefully soon.In the meantime I am also preparing a sale too.A few yrs back I had them in our old summer kitchen.Then moved to AZ for almost a yr.Now that I moved back the faces I used to see at my sales are encouraging me to do more.Now seeing your gives me more encouragement.Fun Finds 2 U....

So,so cute! I glad it was so successful. I sell out of my basement once a month and love being able to putz down there. I am in a small town so traffic is still my challenge. Your goodies look amazing. k

Sandra~Romantique Inspirations~ said...

I think this is a super great idea to have it in your barn. I know here in Michigan a lot of people do good by having right in there own backyards inside there barns. I see some things I would just love to have that are in your shop right now. I wish I was in your area, I would be there quite often.

Enjoy your day-

Wow Cheryl,
When I saw all your cool stuff I though, "Are you kidding me!?" You have everything displayed so perfectly and it's awesome!!! I'm in the process of closing out my little booth in a local antique store. It's a lot sadder than I thought it would be.

If I was in the LA area, I'd ask to sign up. But I'm a little too far for that here in TX.
Congratulations on your own little barn sale.
Patricia :o)
