MacKenzie-Childs Barn Sale 2016

 What can I say.....I am married to the BEST barn sale shopper EVER. We have so much fun, and Joe enjoys it as much (if not more) as I do. If he didn't go with me, I would save a LOT of money.  As soon as we get through the "gate", he takes off and heads for the tents while I shop in the Enamelware Barn. We both have different experiences, and share our stories on the drive home. If you're interested in the MacKenzie-Childs Barn Sale, I would recommend going on their Facebook page to see all the photos. 
 This year, we filled four paper shopping bags (they give these out when you are waiting in line). 
 As always, the property is gorgeous and we only waited in line for an hour and 15 minutes. The staff was exceptionally helpful. Each day they have an additional 20% off on specific items and typically the sale is 50-70% off.
 This is the entrance to the beautiful farmhouse which has tours.  
 Joe managed to get his photo taken in the Courtly Check frame that the barn sale girls in the pink shirts were walking around with. Social Media :-)
I want to sit here. 
And here. 
Oh my, look at the time--it's a quarter to chic! The "timing" was right and I decided I would like a new watch.
Here's most of my purchases. Lidded containers, small bowls, wallet, pitcher, paper plates, ribbon, butterfly placemats, potholders, soap dish, bunny with basket and some children's items for gifts.  Some items they had a ton of (brooms and lamp shades) and other items went quick. Like this Courtly Check rabbit but they brought more out on Sunday.
A beautiful day for the barn sale! Just 360 days until the next barn sale. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello, I'm Debbie.I enjoy hiking, kayaking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the Adirondack Mountains (thus Mountain Breaths). I live in Upstate NY with my supportive husband and have three precious sons..


  1. I sure is a fun time, isn't it? We had too, too much fun!! I just put a quick post up - didn't have time to take pics - too busy filling those paper bags!!

  2. Looks like a perfect day. I think your bags were filled with great finds. I love getting to experience the Barn Sale through your lens. ;-)

  3. Fantastic, Debbie! Love the bunny you scored and, of course, the pedestal. I'll have to go back now and see if I spot Joe on FB on the frame. I was looking for you. :) How fun that your guy is your partner in dividing and conquering!

  4. The bunny..can't wait to see Easter at your house..although he would be cute out all yr long..for some reason I can see those 2 large planters at your home too..
    How wonderful Joe is such a MC fan too.
    ♥ the watch.
    Must be fun to collect one specific make like this.

  5. Oh, Debbie. I LOVE seeing the treasures from the MC Barn sale. It is on my bucket list. One day...

  6. I love that you and Joe enjoy this experience together, Debbie! His picture in the frame is too, too cute. It looks like you both scored lots and lots of fun items. I especially love your CC bunny, and your new "chic" watch!

  7. Oh Debbie, looks like so much fun! Looks like you found some great things, my favorite is the bunny. I would love to go some day…………..

  8. "Only waited in line for an hour and 15 minutes", yes you are definitely married to the best barn sale shopper ever. I don't know what my husband would wait that long for…perhaps to see a Formula One race in Europe. :D It looks like the two of you were very successful with your shopping.

  9. Looks like you both had a great time and came home with lots of goodies:@)

  10. Debbie, I love the goodies you found, especially the children's boxes! I have given those as gifts and they are beautiful. Someday I must get to this sale! Joe looks like he is having a great time too. Linda
