Mackenzie Childs Barn Sale 2014-Updated

This is the first year since 2008 that I will be out of town and won't be attending the Barn Sale. Not to worry, I have a personal shopper this year as I am only looking for three items. More about that after the sale.

MacKenzie-Childs is having their annual BARN SALE – Thursday, July 17th – Sunday, July 20th from 8AM to 6PM. Last year I attended the sale with over 15,000 people, some driving hours across the country and others even camping out overnight. I'm a big fan of the whimsical luxury home d├ęcor brand and items from ceramics, glassware, furniture, rugs, holiday and more are all up to 80% off. This is a wonderful event at the company’s gorgeous 65-acre estate farm in Aurora, New York.

EDIT:  Let the fun begin! I am vicariously attending the 2014 barn sale via Facebook and my iPad while I am away. Here are some photos Mac-Kenzie Childs posted this morning on their FB page. A fun event for sure!!!!

I wish this was my basket :-)

Yes please :-)

Cute shirts! If you are interested in previous Barn Sale posts on my blog, I have included the links here 20102011 and two posts from 2012 and here 2012

My favorite purchase at a previous barn sale is the table. The flower pot is in the Wallcourt pattern. Did you know that the Mackenzie-Childs story began in a humble studio run out of the basement of a Wells College dorm named Wallcourt? I love that. 
Thanks for stopping by!

  3. You love that outing!Hope your PS is successful

  4. Aww too bad that you can't go, Debbie, but I look forward to seeing what your personal shopper (hopefully) finds for you. You're so lucky to have the barn sale. I have a shop near me that now sells MC, but even the sale items are high. xo

    1. Susan, I was actually OK with not going this year. I have service for 12, and didn't want to come back early from vacation ;-) My personal shopper was Patti at Pandora's Box, and she already has her blog post up!


I'm so happy you decided to stop by my blog. Please leave a comment as I enjoy hearing from each and every one of you!
