Barn Cat Rondeviuex

Let me begin, we have had 5 fabulous Barn Sales since 2010...none of which would have run smoothly without the hard work & support of 3 amazing women: Jani, Nan & Sarah.

As I readied for the very first sale, Jani stated that she would be there to help & I don't believe an "I'm sure I can do it myself" was accepted...she put on her apron and dug right in. Sarah & Nan, ever wise, offered to help if needed - they would just be "around in the hayloft"-- knowing they would hear a "help" over the crowd -- and they did. Without their enthusiastic help the first morning of each Barn Sale, it wouldn't happen (by the way...they drive an almost 6 hour round trip to offer this help). They have dubbed themselves the "Barn Cats".....I just call them incredible!

So Saturday, August 4th, is their day. We are off on an Antique Adventure in Illinois...I have promised to return them by midnight.

So, my Barn Cat friends, here is what you need to know...

Morning Pick up times:
8:00 Jani
8:30 Sarah
9:00 Nan

Hint of your coach is below...
Bring your digital camera or camera phone. We have a bit of scavenging to do.
And antiquing.....woo hoo!

Does anyone have any antique shop suggestions in northern Illinois?
