Barn Sale Tour

I've passed by this beauty many times over the years, but it's usually locked up and looking real lonely.  This is Sue's Country Barn located on East Highway 120 in Manteca, California.  I live in the next town over and feel like I've been living under a rock.  I had no idea what's been happening inside twice a year.  I found this barn sale online last week while planning my yard sale strategy for Friday.

Sue opens up her barn for two weeks every April and October.  Someone else has a sale here in November, but I didn't get the details on that one.  I'm on the mailing list now, so I'll get the scoop later.  Unfortunately, she doesn't have a website or a blog.

I love the way the sun was shining through the barn walls.  Look at all the silver welcoming you.  Yum!

OK, I'll keep quiet.

I showed you these little bottles and carrier in my last post.  It's now six days later and the roses still look good.  I didn't spend much money because I had been at the yard sales for almost three hours before I arrived here.  When they opened at 10:00, I was hungry, just about out of money, and in desperate need of a caffeine fix.  No problem, I was still having fun!
I'm loving the graphics on these vintage sheet music covers; I'll probably end up framing them.

I picked out twelve old glass knobs, yards and yards of lace, and this sweet handwriting guide from 1935.

Now that I'm on their mailing list, I won't miss out on the open house the night before. I understand there was a huge crowd and merchandise was flying out the barn door.  If you live in the area, Sue's Country Barn will be open daily 10am-5pm through April 17.
