Kansas Barn Sale



One of my favorite fall traditions - for the last 3 years, at least - has been a visit to the Kansas Barn Sale!  Hosted by Beki at The Rusted Chain, this year's barn sale was amazing.  Look at the brand new barn!  (You can read all about that on The Rusted Chain.  I'm a city girl.  I found it very interesting!) It was quite chilly when we left.  The three of us bundled up, prepared to brave the cold, counting our blessings that at least it was dry compared to last year

And then the sun came out!  Big Sis and I took off our coats.  Little Sis did for a bit, before realizing she should have worn long sleeves...


The last two years, I came home with vintage items, including old books.  This year's list was of the homegrown and handmade variety:  a sugar pumpkin, fresh honey, pillow ticking bunting, stuffies, a shampoo bar, and a dress for Little Sis to wear on her birthday.


There are fabulous pictures on The Rusted Chain  and the Kansas Barn Sale Facebook page.  We were only there for a short time, before heading back south for some fun at the historical museum.  No time for boredom around here!

Are the leaves starting to change where you are?  I spotted a red tree yesterday!  My first this season!

  1. That's a fantastic looking barn! I love a good sales but it's even greater when you can come back with sweet little vintage items! The rosemary orange shampoo bar must smell sooo good :D

  2. What a wonderful day! I wish we had things like this where I live, though it might be tough to convince my crew to spend an afternoon shopping. LOL

    1. The girls weren't in the best of moods at the beginning of the day, but the stuffed toys (that I shouldn't have bought) made them smile. Mr. B gave me this look that I understood completely - aren't we supposed to be thinning out the stuffed toys, not adding to them? But they were homemade and so cute...

    1. Keep an eye out! This one has already spawned a copycat sale in another nearby town. I think a lot of people have been inspired by the success of the Farm Chicks. :)
