Barn House Flea Market/What a Dream!

Here it is Wednesday already and I’m just getting around to posting about the fabulous sale that was the Barn House Flea Market.  Words can’t express how wonderful it truly was.  As I’ve said before, the line up of vendors was truly incredible (both super talented and just really nice people) and the goods and displays, delicious eye candy.  What we had no clue to expect was the masses of people who came to buy, and buy they did.  Everyone kept saying how great the show was, how awesome the customers were and how they sold so much stuff.  They didn’t really have to say it, you could see it in their spaces.

I had one customer say she didn’t think she would find anything as she came later.  That’s the great thing about a show like this.  You don’t have to be the first to get there to find good stuff.  It was all good stuff! I didn’t get a lot of pictures, but here are few of the ones I did take.  Mostly of my space.

I didn’t buy a lot, but managed to find a few treasures.

More vintage finds 104

Isabel had these gorgeous barkcloth pillows that I just had to have for my new sofa.  I love them so much!


Inspired by this adorableness that was the creation of Worthy Goods (not sure if Laurie or Debbie did this), I bought this sweet vintage doll stroller frame from Bob and Debbie


and did this


I want to thank all the lovely customers who came and shopped.  I saw lots of new faces and some of my favorite people shopping that day.  Everyone I saw had a huge smile on their face and I was so happy to see them all. I want to thank my sweet neighbors, Laurie and Debbie for all of their help and kind words while I was setting up.  But, most of all I want to thank the amazing Joe and Jermonne, for not only all their hard work putting together such an incredible event, but for including little old me in the Barn House family. To say how grateful and lucky I feel would be an understatement.

This has been a very busy week so far.  I spent Sunday and Monday moving my Splendid space over to Stars.  I’m super excited to be directly across from my good friend, Mitzi and I have to say, I think my new space is looking pretty good.  I’ll get some pictures up here soon.  I’m also doing a much procrastinated garage sale this Friday at my house.  I know, I’m a little nuts, but all the stuff I’ve been collecting for this sale has been taking over my house and I want it gone.  Everything will be super cheap with most things being only $1.

I'm right there with you on the barkcloth! I have lots of old curtains that I use for... curtains! They are so wonderful in my home, and I love changing out the feeling of a room during the seasons with just a few new vintage fabric pillows and barkcloth curtains.

Mitzi Curi said...

Everything in your pictures looks enticing. It's all displayed so nicely, which I know isn't an easy thing to do at an outdoor show. I hope your sales were brisk.

Bohemian said...

The pixs made me drool all over my keyboard! *le sigh* Your space had SO many lovelies and has such a beautiful presentation of them. My eye caught the old feather Ticking pillows... I have a collection of those and LOVE them, too pretty to put pillowcases on aren't they?

Connie said...

I have a question, sweetpea. How in the world did you do that umbrella with the chenille and fringe in the 1st and 2nd photos?! I've been trying to find or do something like that but can't quite figure it out. Can you help or explain HOW? Just adorable and I loooooooove it...

Hello Lisa
I love your booth! I had seen a post on making these lovely fabric & lace liners for the pull shopping carts. I am assuming it is you! Please confirm as I would love to be able to see it again. Great it!!
