The Gresham Barn Sale and a Peek Inside my Home

The Gresham Barn Sale is one of my favorite things I look forward to in the Spring.  They have everything from vintage finds, to weathered “junk” (my favorite), to antiques – all at great prices!  There isn’t a single room in my house that doesn’t have something I have found from there.  Not only do I search for items for my home, I always have an eye out for items to use in my photography as well.  This month Jodi, the owner, is currently selling one item a day in the month of February on Facebook.  You can find her page here.

I found this quilt in the fall for just $28!

I found this bookshelf that we used in my son’s bedroom there a few years back.  It really is one of my favorites (but if you ask, I pretty much say that about all of them, hah)!  We also found this old Coca-Cola box and used it to store trains in.

This little church pew was the first purchase I made when we moved a couple years back.  I get so many complements on it!  The wall clock above the pew I purchased during the Christmas Sale, when Jodi brings in vendors of hand-made items.

This old window sits in the eating area of our kitchen and though it is naked now, I layer seasonal decor over it and really makes a nice background for Christmas cards or birthday banners!

This quilt cabinet sits in my daughter’s room and I use it to hold all of her accessories and diapering items.   The bottom stores her blankets and sheets.  I love the character this brings to her room!!!  Jodi inspired me to refinish the crib with chalk paint and a few of the frames above her crib also came from The Barn Sale.

The headboard of our bed was actually an old mantel that we added backing and a base to and then repainted it.  It is now the focal point of our room and really makes a statement!

Last, but not least, I found this antique scale that I plan to use with future newborn sessions after I clean it up and give it a little paint!  I will write another blog about it when it is complete!

I could go on and on about all of the things I have have collected from the Barn Sale, but for now I will leave you here.  If you would like to visit the, Jodi opens the Barn a few times a year and you can always check her webpage for upcoming sales.  Her next sale is April 15-18, so mark your calendars and I hope to see you there!

I could go on and on about all of the other pieces I have in my house, but I’d love to here about some of your favorite finds, either at the Gresham Barn Sale, or your favorite place/event to shop!
