I don't think there is a better sight than this one...
I've been to this "barn sale" before. But calling this a barn sale is a little deceptive. It is really just three leaky, rotting sheds filled with junk. Each of the sheds is filled with boxes of household items (mostly box lots from auctions). You have to dig deep to find the good stuff at this sale. And it isn't easy to dig deep when you are accompanied by a two-year-old girl who hates bugs and dirt. And because I have warned her so many times to stay away from things that are glass, she repeatedly points to things and asks me "Is that glaaaaasth?" in her lispy little two-year-old voice.
I did find a few gems, though. Like the wire wastebasket, the glass jars, two milk glass plates with stripes around the rim, and a milk glass butter dish. (It only holds half of a stick of butter - has anyone ever seen these before?) I also bought the metal rolling cart. None of the items are priced. I just make a big pile of all of the stuff that I want, and the man tells me a price for everything.
I bought everything else in the picture from a tag sale at a local firehouse (right outside of Longwood Gardens), and a yard sale that was packed with antiques. I already own the same iron plant stand, but mine is painted yellow.
My favorite finds for the day are the chippy white balusters and the vintage floral umbrella.
