Nellie's Barn Sale

Happy Wednesday!

I took a ride out in the country to Nellie's Barn Sale about an hour and a half from my home this past Saturday.  It was a great country back roads ride.  

Terry and I took the drive together.  It was a beautiful day.  Sun shining and in the 60's.  With the trees starting to change colors it was a really pretty drive.

Nellie's Barn sales are always the best.  This is her fall show and it did not disappoint.  Over 40 vendors with really wonderful treasures for sale.

I just loved the whimsy of this sign as you entered the barn sale.

Fun vintage bike dressed for halloween.

Lot's of great vintage signs.  I loved this college ave. sign.  Would this not be a neat gift to give to someone going away to college for their dorm room.  Loved this.

Loved this vendor.  She had some really sweet kids items.  I had to get my granddaughter Abby a few things from this vendor.
This my friends was an awesome treasure.  This old truck door.  It sold right away and the vendor said she could have sold it many times over.  No kidding it is a great find.  It is hard to tell but where the truck mirror was on the door there was a heart shape of rust.  I do not know where I ever would have put something like this in my house but Ohhhhh it was a wonderful find for the lucky person that got to it first.
Vintage Bliss is one of my favorite vendors.  Love her booth and all her charming signs and vintage treasures.
Vintage Bliss is the vendor I got my great Milk and Cream Sign from awhile back at another show she was in this summer.
She had another one for sale.
I wanted this drug store sign so much but no place to put this one.  It was just so cool.
Lots of vintage camera's and oh so many great signs.
Inside the big barn one of the vendors had a lot of primitives.  My daughter loves primitive so I found a few treasures for her at the show.
Loved this primitive snowman made out of old feed bags.  

Yep, Mr. Prim Snowman and Santa came home in the car for my daughter.

Well there you have it another fun Barn Sale this past week end.  Wonderful drive in the country, beautiful weather and great treasures.  It could not have been a sweeter day for junkin.

Hope to show you some of my sweet treasures I found at the show soon.

Have a wonderful rest of the week.

Hope to see you back on Saturday for Spotlight.  Susan and I have two more bloggers for you to get to know on a more personal level.


  1. Kris, That truly looked like a great place to go shopping. I loved the signs too. Lots of nice old chairs too. I think you missed a door there Kris. :):) Bless your heart, xoxo,Susie

  2. Wow, that's my kind of show! I just adore those vendors' displays. Such a clever mix and I'm not surprised the truck door sold right away. It's so unique. Love all those signs, too.
    Your daughter will appreciate her cute gifts from you - hope she doesn't read your blog!
    I bet Terry got a big kick out of that sign at the entrance, with Mr. skeleton husband. :)

  3. Kris- What a GREAT sale. My Gosh- you just find the best markets and sales and shops! Loved the husband sign on entering. I have to say that I broke out in a big grin when I saw that snowman and santa in the back of your vehicle looking out the back women. lol Too funny. Have a great rest of the week. xo Diana ps. I like the milk sign you bought before the best (of the two).

  4. So fun! I could have spent a fortune there. I wish we have more of these outdoor flea markets out here.

  9. As I was reading this, I knew that you were going to tease us and not show your finds.

    I am thinking of decorating Steve's beach cruiser for Halloween. I can't paint it and add flowers because he rides it a lot, but I think I can do a Halloween vignette for the next few weeks.
