If you have been reading my blog for a while, you will recall that we are "supporters" of the annual MacKenzie-Childs Barn Sale.
Once a 19th-century dairy farm, the MacKenzie-Childs property in Aurora, NY is always bustling with shoppers looking for bargains at the barn sale. On the property is the gorgeous Victorian farmhouse and giant barns where items are created and artisans work.
The MacKenzie-Childs style is unique. It's whimsical, fun, colorful, sophisticated and classic. My personal favorite is the signature MacKenzie-Childs “courtly check” pattern and I mix and match it with their pottery pieces. Most pieces are handmade, and some pottery has the stamp of the artisan(s) who worked on it.
While visiting MacKenzie-Childs, the free farmhouse tour is a must. It's fully decorated, and you'll want to move in. They do photo shoots for the catalog in the farmhouse.
I'll let you know what I end up buying!
