I’m not one to pass up a barn sale and here in Ohio, we have our share of them! The husband and I drove up to Mt. Vernon early Friday morning to hit the Rural Society Antique Show. The sun wasn’t up yet and didn’t make its appearance until about an hour into the trip. But when it did, this is what we saw…..
Just look at the mist on the field.
I took these shots from inside the car as we were tooling down the country roads. It was so ethereal and magical…
When we reached the barn sale in the rolling countryside outside of Mt. Vernon, we were greeted by oodles of pumpkins, flowers, and gourds outside the barn.
The fragrance of Sweet Annie was prevalent both outside the barn, as well as inside. It’s so fragrant- sweet and earthy.
The old jalopy truck evidently still runs~ it got parked here to greet visitors!
This is one of the things that I passed up. Why? Heavens, I can’t figure it out! I kept coming back to it but decided against it. This is the real deal. Over the weekend I saw a few reproductions at just a few dollars under the asking price of this one. Will I ever learn?
I was enamored with this long basket, but I’m about basket-ed out! It would look wonderful with seasonal florals in it, wouldn’t it?
This was such a cool piece- it’s a drying rack. Don’t know what it could be re-purposed as, but it sure was cool.
I’m a big fan of bovines so I had to check out this framed picture. But at $279, it was a bit pricey for me.
Ever since I bought my old wooden pizza paddle last year, I’ve been on the look-out for a reasonably priced breadboard. Unfortunately, this one didn’t fit that criteria. Guess I’ll just keep looking. Too bad the yard sales are fading fast around here….
Ok, what are these things? I love them!
Guess what were among some of my purchases?
Doesn’t this look like something you’d see along the French countryside?
I let some lady take our picture when she volunteered. I asked if she knew how to use a DSLR and she answered that she did. Okay…….. Needless to say, I was a little concerned after it took her several minutes to do so! I saw so many people at the show wearing boots. Pam and Kathy both had theirs on. I don’t have a pair of Wellies, but I’ll be looking for a pair real soon. I slipped on a patch of mud walking up the hill from the parking area, went down on both knees, and fell flat on my face. ouch. I felt like the lady on the crazy commercial who cries, “Help, I’ve fallen and can’t get up!” My first instinct was to protect the new camera! Only me….. My bruises are turning yellow now, so I must be healing!
And where was this guy when I was going up that hill? Already making his way into a booth to shop!
Colorful roo. Do you see that three-tier metal display holder in the background? I want one of those and I bet I could create one and save myself the three digit price point at this booth!
After spending a couple of hours at the sale, we drove down to Granville and had lunch with Debby, another Buckeye Blogger that I met up with last week at the French Hen Farm sale. Here she is below in a pic I “borrowed” off of her blog. She made it to the sale on Saturday and met up with a few Buckeye Blogger friends, too.
I’ll be back real soon to show you what I found here and at the French Hen Farm sale. Til then, enjoy fall!
