Shopping, Barn Style

Between the puppies, work and the house, t’s been a crazy couple months so my husband and I left the house on Sunday morning and headed to a barn sale in St. Charles. Tucked within a neighborhood of suburban homes, the barn was back in a corner and was owned by an antique dealer. She used it to store items she didn’t have room for in her booth at the local antique store.

Here are some of the highlights:

Old Comic Books
A wood-burning stove
A lovely 1940s Price Brothers Cottage Ware tea pot.

My favorite Indian Tree China

I did not buy anything inside the barn, however, the tables outside were loaded boxes with costume jewelry. I enjoyed sorting through them and settled on this lovely Bohemian crystal necklace.

While heading to the first sale, we had noticed a sign for a second Barn Sale so we had to stop. Sitting out in front was this motorcycle and sidecar.

The only thing that captured my interest was this original 1969 movie poster from a Johnny Cash movie.


Even though I did not buy much, it was a fun morning, and I plan to go out next week. I’ll share my finds with you.
