Hello Everyone out there in Blog Land!
I know I promised to post yesterday, but time once again got away from me.
Sunday I got to go barn pickin', one of my favorite things to do!
Boy do I feel like one of the guys/gals from American Pickers!
Shoot ~ I forgot my flashlight!A couple times throughout the year we get to go to this guys house and pick through his barn, this is through invitation only. I feel so honored to join in the fun. The man that owns this barn goes to flea markets, garage sales, auctions, estate sales and travels the country to find old homes and such that are being torn down. Sometimes he comes across the most amazing things. His barn and property are full of wonderful finds.
This is the barn that we go pickin' through ~ even the lofts are packed to the brim.
I don't always like going up there, (kind of scary coming down, you have to hang onto a rope when your going down the steep ramps) but if you don't you'll surely miss something! Last year I found the most beautiful old strawberry basket with a birds nest in it, it was tucked way in the corner under a bunch of stuff. That's why you need a flashlight not much light up there either.
In the main level there is room after room filled with great finds. Sorry I didn't take any pictures in the inside.
I'll try to next time ~ he said we might be able to come back at the end of July. YIPPEE!!!
Some things have prices, some do not ~ it's like going to your own personal flea market. He even had a table set up with beverages and bars!
Even if you need/looking for an old outhouse he has some of those too!
I don't know how many he has, I'm going to guess around 30 or so.
I love this! It goes perfect in my flower garden. It even spins!
He told me it used to be a seed marker for planting.
Hope you all enjoyed my little adventure in barn pickin'!
