Posts Tagged ‘barn sales’

I did an earlier post about the popularity of barn sales here, and one of my favorites is Ekster’s barn sale in Hamilton Va. They were open this past weekend and I went with a few friends. It was four of us total, so we took 2 vehicles (which is a good thing we did because I needed both to bring back my purchases! Ha!) All of us have recently purchased or are in the process of purchasing new homes, so it was fun to help each other with design ideas.
Ekster Antiques is owned & operated by Caroline Verscoor and Jon-Paul Saunier. You can read all about them & their fabulous barn sales here

The bench went in my basement as you come in from the garage, I still need to hang art or a mirror

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

You can see more pics of what’s available here

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