Over & over each year we have debated hosting a Barn Sale again
With mixed emotion, we have made the decision to take some time off.
There will not be a Meadowview Farm Barn Sale at this time.
We began these sales in 2010, and have been absolutely amazed by the response. Each sale has gotten better & better, bigger & bigger. Many of you may still remember the one try at a November sale and the cold, cold, cold (but warm spirits) in the hayloft! This last Barn Sale in October, 2013 exceeded all expectations -- actually adding a new dilemma - how to thoughtfully "manage" the volume of shoppers on the first morning and eliminate long waits to check out for future sales! Such wonderful "problems" to have.
But, in all honesty, my health in 2013 and recovery in the years following put a wrench in it all. Dealing with breast cancer ~ surgeries and recovery ~ has meant that my energy has been near depleted. Working my full time day job, keeping up with our farm, loading my booth & case at the Hixton Schoolhouse Antique Mall is all I can manage. I needed to make the decision that right now I have needed to breathe in every day of every season. I know you understand.
And -- I do want to say how much I honor & adore every single one of you that supported our sale through notes on this blog or through your attendance. You have touched my heart!
Finally, my thanks with an exclamation mark to my Dave & Ian for being there! And to Jani, Nan & Sarah -- (and at the 2013 sale, Jani's husband, Norm) --- aka "The Barn Cats". If you attended the first morning of any Barn Sale -- these are the hard working folks that helped, checked you out...."woo hooed" their way through this philanthropic adventure called friendship...driving 6 hours round trip to be here. My love for these peeps of mine is deep!
So, you might ask -- will there be another Barn Sale?
I honestly am just not sure, but my blog is certainly where I will announce it if we do!
And, please "like" the Meadowview Farm Business Facebook Page for even more updates.
This is where I will post potential "pop-up sales" at the farm, vintage furniture for sale and other stuff that just might interest you. This is also a place you can be in touch with me.
You can find us here: Meadowview Farm on Facebook
You can still find me at the Hixton Schoolhouse Antique Mall!
For now, dear friends, my thanks....
