Barn sales

Hello everyone! Sorry I haven’t posted in a while but not much has changed around here & I don’t like posting pics of unfinished spaces. I still haven’t gotten anywhere on finding someone who can install my antique limestone mantel :(….. It’s frustrating to say the least!
I thought I’d post about the popularity of barn sales in the northern Va, DC & Md areas. I don’t know what part of the country you live but it’s become quite a great way to buy antiques & such around here.
The first one I ever went to was held by Caroline , owner of Ekster Antiques. I first discovered her wonderful Belgian furnishings & accessories when she had a storefront in Leeesburg Va. It has since closed & she now opens her barns on her property for big sales every few months whenever she has a new shipment. Here’s a few pics of items available at her next sale Sept 28-30

Another barn sale that’s quite popular is
chartruese & co located in Frederick Md. They are open monthly every 3rd Fri-Mon

Frederick is a great place to spend the day, lots of great shopping & restaurants. After checking out Chartruese, you can drive a few miles from there down a pretty country road to Stylish Patina, yet another barn sale!
And if that’s not reason enough for a day trip, Frederick is only minutes away from Old Lucketts Store in Lucketts Va. Not exactly a barn sale but similar finds! So….. Fall would be a great time to check one or all of these out! I’m thinking about going to Eksters for sure. I’d love to hear your feedback….is this a trend in your neck of the woods?
