An invitation to a barn sale….

 

 

It’s almost time for another

French Hen Farm holiday barn sale!!!

I can hardly wait to go back up to Marysville  on Dec. 4th to see what goodies Linda has waiting for us at this Christmas sale.  You can read my post about her Fall/Halloween sale here.  I found so many pretty and interesting things and was truly hoping she’d  be hosting a Christmas event.  Well, her invitations went out this week and I know she’ll have quite a crowd!

Since I live on the very south end of town, it’s a bit of a drive from Dayton to Marysville, so I’ll be getting an early start in the morning.  When I talked to Linda at her sale back in October, she said most everyone had come early in the morning to shop.  Well, I certainly don’t want to miss a thing, so I’ll be there right at opening this time!   I’ve spoken to a few Ohio blogging buddies who have expressed an interest in going, too. What I would  like to see happen is that we shop and then go out for lunch.  Some of us have actually met in person, but for the most part, we communicate mainly  on our blogs and through private e-mails.

So….. I’m issuing an invitation to all  Ohio bloggers to meet up at the barn sale and then head off for a get-to-know- each other lunch.  Doesn’t that sound like fun?  Of course, even if you aren’t a Buckeye and would like to hit the sale- by all means, show up! It’s always fun meeting new people with similar interests.   :-)     

If you’re interested in this, please let me know and I can start making some restaurant plans. 

Hope you’ll all have a great Thanksgiving holiday with your loved ones. I’m sure we all have so very much to be thankful for.

Sounds like a lot of fun, but a little far away for me. That is ok - Take lots of pictures, make notes and report back to us that can't make the trip. :D
Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

I hope to make it to Linda's sale too because it's sure to be pure magic!! I recommend Doc Henderson's for a wonderful lunch!! It's a 4 star restaurant with affordable lunches, right in the heart of Uptown Marysville. I'd love to lunch with you all, but I'll be at my shop (Uptown Antiques). Maybe you all can stop by and visit after lunch and then go down the street to Primitives and Porcelain!

I'd love to come. Going to the lakehouse in Michigan would cut up the trip but it is still a long way for one sale. I will just have live through your great time there!!

What if all the Bloggers wear a red poinsettia or something, so that we instantly "know" who we are?

Sarah @ Modern Country Style said...

It would be so lovely to meet up with other bloggers. I hope you have a brilliant time! I don't know anyone who lives near me so I'm rather jealous of you all!!

Wish I was closer! Sounds like a great day. Better get there extra early though. You'll have even more shopping competition now!
Have a great Thanksgiving!

Blessedmom's Simple Home said...

I look forward to seeing all the goodies you find there Sue! I wish I lived closer too :-)
Btw, we had a little sled like you showed in your last post. Now, I'm thinking "why on earth did we have one?" living in a suburb of Los Angeles, we had to "go to" the snow!
I wish I still had it though :-)
Blessings,
Marcia

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Hey Sue, Sounds like you may have a group of bloggers meeting for fun and food.....I'd be there in a heartbeat if I could. I have two old wooden sleds leaning against the Christmas shed right now....been there for two years. I would happily give you one if you were close by. Happy Thanksgiving.xoxo

Pam said...

I'm going to try to come, but I'll get back with you after Thanksgiving with a definite yes or no. You do understand that if I come I will be camped out in front of the barn door when you get there. I wouldn't want to miss a thing.

Susie Q said...

Um..me...me...ME!!! Count me in!
Love,
Sue

Polly said...

Hey Sue! Not sure how I missed this post! But anyways, there's about 5 or 6 of us girls out this way heading to the barn sale! Would love to meet up! Not sure if I can do lunch because I have to go to Cleveland that afternoon! Keep me posted!!

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
