One of the highlights of the Mackenzie-Childs Barn Sale was meeting Patti from Pandora's Box. She worked at the Barn Sale, and I am so happy we finally met!
Every July, one of my favorite destinations is the Finger Lakes where we enjoy the sights and do some shopping at the Mackenzie-Childs barn sale. Here is one of my bargain purchases from the barn sale this year. The large Flower Market Enamel Pedestal Platter is regularly $98 in the catalog, and I got it for $29.40. It has the signature Courtly Check pedestal, and will be enjoyed at our dinner parties. Kathleen likes it when we include the price of our "bargains" :-)
On my wish list was the Carriage Lantern to use in my "Daisy Garden". It is so pretty lit up in the evening, so I'll share a photo of that next time.
Another carriage lantern is being used on a table in the entry way. The pair of lanterns will eventually be used on our front porch to welcome family and friends to our home when we host parties. They will make a great Halloween display too.
I have been wishing for the Picadilly Loaf Pan for a while, but didn't want to pay full price. The 50% off price made it more reasonable. If Patti from Pandora's Box lived a little closer, I'd bake her a loaf of my famous pecan-cinnamon chip bread and deliver it to her warm.
I also picked up some paper napkins, coasters and placemats in the Courtly Check pattern.
Courtly Check waste bin for the spare bedroom/my office. I can also use it to hold a potted mum in the fall in our foyer, or put magazines in it.
I added eight enamel rimmed dishes to my collection, so now we have 12. We have 10-12 in our dinner group so I like to have 12 of everything.
Globe Vases to be filled with flowers for some nice hostesses. I bought one for myself too, and I'm going to put a tea light in it.
Joe surprised me with this glass owl Christmas tree topper. I never even saw it for sale, and he said there were only three left so he grabbed it quickly. I love owls!!
Two Courtly Check Holly and Berries Christmas stockings.
A little secret....Mackenzie-Childs raised some of their prices at the barn sale this year. I bought my Courtly Check pedestal table (below) last year, and they've increased the barn sale price by $150 this year. Glad I bought it when I did!
One of the cute sights on our way to the barn sale.
In the gift shop, we got a sneek peek of the new Parchment enamelware.
We need rain very badly, and boy did it down pour for a short time on Sunday at the barn sale. The two bags on the bench were from our third trip to the car ;o)
Thank you for stopping by! I'm joining Let's Dish at Cuisine Kathleen's blog. She is a wonderful hostess!
