the NEXT red hot event at the Barn

As you can see...
I am hosting a small event at my Barn.

Folks at the last sale were very confused.
"...what do you mean you are having an event...I thought you were closing?"
"...this is the last day of the sale...but you are still open??? "

Yes and Yes and YES.

Let me explain.
Most of you follow the Blog and Facebook so you know that I have been here a while and that I have chosen to close the retail shop at my Barn.  I call it my Barn but it really is only mine on lease... I rent the Barn for my brick & mortar business...which I am closing.  I have this Barn... until the end of September. 
Yes...ALL Summer.

So in June...we shortened the work week and did inventory reduction. The first three weeks, Thursday - Saturday, I did 50% off the retail prices, and this last week I did 65% off. I hope you all took advantage of the marvelous savings. 
Enjoy. Enjoy. Enjoy.

Shame on those of you who asked for a bigger discount, did a hissy dance and left with nothing. I guess, all I can say is, it is your loss. On the other hand, Thank you from the bottom of my heart, for those of you who not only helped reduce my inventory, but for all the praise and love you shared. 

Because I have my Barn all Summer I decided to have some fun and play until I have to leave.  So if you can make it to the Red Hot Summer event in July it will be filled with one-of-a-kind Vintage finds. Many treasures from my own house...AND from my friends who are also long time collectors. Prices will be as marked BUT priced to sell. Nobody wants to take their goods home with them.
...remember, as marked.

Stay tuned for what is next on the horizon. 

Spread the word and see you on Wednesday the 15th.

Inventory reduction SALE

I thought by doing my sales, just 3 days a week in June, I would have more time.
Hello!! Not Happening.
I am busier then ever.

So I apologize for not getting out more posts.
I don't have the time this morning, but I promise I will catch you all up on what's been happening this weekend.

For now....
the first 3 sales were crazy all at 50% off. Things started to slow down last week so I knew it was time to bump the discount up.  
This week - BOOM - 65% off
Yes, we have sold down a TON but I still have loads of good, fun stuff.

Look for every item in the Barn to be on Sale....YES even my fabulous Props that have never seen a price tag before.....

NO CHECKS TAKEN DURING THE SALE. Cash and credit cards only

This is the last 3 days of the huge discounts.
Next month we will do a Vintage Market with a large group of Vendors... stay tuned for that.

and so it continues...

In about an hour the doors will open for the Second part of our Store Closing Sale.

Part 2 of 4 !! 

 I tried to get everything out of the backrooms onto the sales floor and I still have not finished my task. Be patient and check back often.
 I will get it out and it will be fresh for the picking.

Everyone who has stepped foot inside my Barn over the last nine years knows that I like to keep things full...from the ceiling down to the floor boards....good stuff awaits. I often joke that there is enough product in here to fill 3 small cities .... I now think it is true, after seeing how much went out the first sale, and how much is left today!!

You will have to come see for yourself !

Remember, everything is marked at regular retail prices and then discounted at the register.
Half OFF.
From me to YOU!
Because you are fabulous customers and friends I want to offer you all a parting gift of my fabulous inventory at cost.
Everything is 50% off 
Come enjoy.

All in Or All OUT

This is the view from the entry after our first 3 day sale.


If you remember...up front I had a forest of full sized birch trees, a vintage porch swing, a few fabulous vintage doors and an array of funky goods.....all gone.
My staff made fun of me that I would even try to keep up with my Vignettes...but I don't know how to do it any other way. 

First Sale - success !! I exceeded my goal.
As you can see we STILL have product. Enough for another few weeks of madness.
I will work at getting everything out of the back rooms and out of the cupboards.
EVERYTHING will be on the sales floor for the next sale.

I do want to thank everyone for the well wishes and the accolades. You are all very sweet, and your well wishes and your praise, I will cherish. 

Remember, NO condolences.
 This was my choice.
It has nothing to do with the economy or sales. 
I am just tired. I need to live my life like everyone else ....just one full time job.

The Barn was mine and I did it full speed ahead with everything I had.  When it got to the point where I felt I wasn't doing my best, I knew it was then time to let go.
All in or All OUT.

Many asked why I didn't just hire someone to help keep up with the buying, going to market and doing the Vignettes..... This was not a choice for me personally. To me, the Barn, this Company, was all about me creating the magic, not paying for someone else to do it.  If someone else was buying and creating and I was sitting on the bench..... NOPE. NO GOOD. 
I can't take credit for something that I didn't create.
So it was NOT a choice I could make.
All in or ALL OUT.

So I made the decision to close and take my creations with me. Someone else will come in and they can create their magic. We just have to be patient. I have my lovely Barn throughout the summer and then I will move on.
Stay tuned for my next chapter....

In the mean time, I do want to offer you all a parting gift of my fabulous inventory at cost.
Everything is 50% off 
Come enjoy.

It's official

It's official.
The STORE CLOSING Sale starts Tomorrow

Thursday - Saturday 10 am - 5 pm


It was insane the last week of May. After I posted the store closing post everyone decided to come in. Whether it was for one last last purchase...grabbing that one special item that has never had a price ticket on special props...OR to get a game plan for Thursday morning.

It was busy, it was fun and there were tears.
It has been a GRAND ride.

Remember - this is just the first week.
We will be open every Th - Fr - Sat in June.

I hope you all will come in and benefit from the Huge Discounts.

Layer it on. Change it up.

Time for a refresh. Have you ever looked at an area in your house and thought I am done looking at that mess.   Or maybe it's just time...
