Have you ever been to a Barn Sale?
Barn Sales aren't a new concept to us junkers.
Just look at what The Barn House Boys have accomplished in such a short time frame.
Then, there are our local Texans that hold sales,
like the girls from The Red Shed in Grapevine Texas,
The Grisham Barn Sale in Flint Texas,
my friends Mickie and Brandy that hold The Accumulations Sale in Dripping Springs Texas,
The girls at Rusted Gingham,
The Queen Bee Barn Sale in Deer Park
and this weekend is The Old Red Lumberyard Sale in McKinney Texas.
Holding a Barn Sale rather than owning a shop or renting space in a shop,
allows you the freedom to sale your things
while not being tied down to set hours and
there's more freedom in being able to
go out and find things and then put them together for the sale.
I've thought all along this is probably the best way to sell your vintage finds.
The first time I heard about this was in an old issue of Country Home magazine
in a sale called The Second Hand Rose.
They held quarterly sales and were open for a few days only during the sale.
What a great idea!
While Texas is known for the Big Antique Shows
that are held twice a year in Round Top and Warrenton Texas
(and the surrounding towns)
and yes this is coming up next month,
we also have either a Flea Market
or Antique Show that you can attend
almost every month in one part of Texas or another,
I think the idea of having a Barn Sale several times a year is a great concept.
My friend Vintage Rescue Sue recently did a post on barn sales in her area,
check out her blog above for details.

So tell me, is this something that would interest you?
If so, would you drive hours to go if you knew the merchandise was great?
Curious minds want to know.
Do you know of a barn sale in Texas that you go to that I haven't listed?
I'm also linking up with Kathleen for her White Wednesday posts.
