2012 Spring Barn Sale - countdown begins

We began what we shall call the "big gather" for the May Barn Sale this past is our pick by the numbers:

  • 1 -- first trailer full of finds arrives at the farm for the sale
  • 2 -- number of falls I took climbing snowy mounds to fill trailer
  • 3 -- bruises from above mentioned falls (smile)
  • 4 -- outbuildings we climbed thru to fill trailer
  • 5 -- hours spent on a chilly Saturday picking thru outbuildings
  • 6 -- number of bungee cords it took to secure our load of finds
  • 7 -- hours it took to thaw out after quest...jaw so frozen, couldn't talk
  • 8 -- at least that many very cool galvanized watering cans & pails found
  • 9 -- minimum times we stopped to pinch ourselves as we picked -- wow!
  • 10 - size of stack of old bikes I am sure I was standing on at one point
  • 11 - wooden tables, farm chairs, ice cream buckets AND letters found
  • 12 - May 12, 2012...Meadowview Farm Barn Sale door opens at 9:00
  • 13 - May 13, 2012...hayloft of our 100+ year old barn opens at 12:00

There is a chance that this may indeed be the last spring Barn Sale...we are considering hosting just one sale a year in October. So hard to gather in the winter months...will keep you posted...

Kari it's not nice to tease us this way....May seems a long way off. 3-1/2 months of wondering and waiting. It's just cruel. :)
