Highlights of MacKenzie-Childs Barn Sale 2017



 
The Butterfly Garden Tumblers had been on my wish list and they are more reasonable at 50% off :-)  
Flower market cutting board, Berries & Blossoms dinner plates, Poppy dish towel, Daisy dish towel.

I picked up the Courtly Stripe Chandelier Shade for an accent lamp I had, and got one for a friend. 
A throw rug for the entry way.
The cannister trio came home with me, and I haven't decided what to fill them with. I've never had cannisters on my counter. 


Most of the people I met at the barn sale were from other states. This is Stacie from Oklahoma. 



Barn Sale treasures and meeting new friends was the highlight of the MacKenzie-Childs Barn Sale. But having quality time with my best friend Mr. Mountain Breaths at the barn sale was even better. The best way to describe the barn sale is that you are at a conference with thousands of people who enjoy what you enjoy. It's a happy place, crowded yes, but everyone is polite. Some of my blog friends would like to attend in 2018, and I sure hope they do. One of the ladies I met at the sale was from Oklahoma and while chatting I found out that the reason she attends the barn sale is because of my blog. The world is smaller than we think. The connections we have that we are unaware of. I receive several emails about the barn sale, and I am happy to help. How long was the line this year? I went on Thursday, arrived at 2 pm and only waited for one hour. We were checked out by 5:30 pm just in time for dinner at the Aurora Inn. 

Thanks for stopping by!
xoxo
Debbie
