Sue's Country Barn Tour

It's that time of the year again for Sue's Country Barn sale.  I can't believe it's been three years since I wandered over to our neighboring town to visit the barn.  Sue opens twice a year for a short two week period, then she spends the next several months gathering treasures for the next opening.  You can see pictures from my last visit in October 2011 here and April 2011 here.  I didn't make it over to the barn until the third day of the sale, but there was still plenty to see.

Don't you love that rustic Sears Roebuck box?  The blue chest of drawers it's sitting on grabbed my attention also.

Enjoy the tour.  I'll try not to talk too much:-)


This is the view when you walk through the front door.  Notice the sun shining right through the barn walls?   This explains the white blobs and lines in some of these pictures.

This rusty metal cabinet full drawers had to be my favorite item in the barn this time.  Unfortunately I had to leave it behind because it was way out of my thrifty loving price range.

Things grow big in this barn....

For greater see-ability you can buy one of these humongous light bulbs.  They're about 14" long!

Or you can buy this bird mansion.  

It's hard to see just how big this suitcase is without a reference, but it had to be at least 4' long.  

Love these chippy old beauties.

What did I buy?
Three of these old fruit drying racks for just $5 each.  I see signs. 

I couldn't resist the biggest stamp I've ever seen!  This thing is 9" long and the rubber is in perfect condition.  This one is a keeper.

Sue's Country Barn will be open daily 10:00am - 5:00pm through October 26th.
12607 E. Hwy 120 in Manteca, Ca.  For more information you can call 209-607-6013.  Sorry, still no website or Facebook page that I know of.

  1. What an awesome barn sale! So many interesting displays and vignettes. Thanks for the tour! I know you are going to have fun with that large stamp you bought and I can't wait to see your drying racks signs.

  2. I can't imagine what was there on days 1 and 2 if all that was left on day 3. I saw so many things I would love. And, I got an idea. I love the table set with the blue and white plates. I am going to look online for some blue and white bandanas.

  3. I love the beaded purses and rhinestone belt buckles but my favorite has to be the bird mansion! Thanks for sharing these treasures. I enjoyed it!

  4. I, too, loved that metal cabinet. And how I would love to sit down and have lunch or tea at that pretty white table with the wonderful blue and white table settings!

  5. Wow lots of great stuff to see and shop through there!! Love that giant pulley!! Thanks for the tour!! :) Happy Friday! xo Holly

  6. Oh, so many pretties to see all in one place! I'd have been dragging things home and I have nowhere to put them.

  7. Oh - I want that bird mansion, but have no place to put it!!! The blue chest with multiple shallow drawers would make great storage for jewelry making supplies.
    I can dream! LOL
