Another hot one ...

This past month's barn markets have kicked our gypsy butts! Two weekends in a row, plus another off site show thrown in, a party, and sweltering heat and humidity makes for two exhausted gypsy gals !!

What makes it all worth it? 
The extreme fun in shopping for and creating new vignettes ... Hanging out with the most awesome customers ... YOU!! ... this is one thing we are most surprised about our new barn adventure ... making new friends that come to visit us EACH month ... talk about feeling special!
I managed to catch one of the many laughs we had on film ... a couple of gals barn shopping in a mini cooper ... and buying furniture ... and trying to make it fit ... the one cutie is Gina from "Vintage junk in my trunk", Gina, seriously? ... girlfriend, you're gonna need a bigger trunk !! 
But we still love ya just the same!
They did it! ... and those smiles tell the whole story ... girlfriends having fun!

So, what's next? The next barn market is Saturday, August 21st, 9-3 ... yup, only one market day in August and it will be our summer clearance sale ... mark your calendars ladies you'll not want to miss shopping the upcoming sales.

In the mean time we are taking some time off from the barn to enjoy our families and summer ...
We'll also be planning our fall markets and shopping, of course!

See ya back at the barn {in August!}

Rain, rain, go away .... please don't come back another day

We've been debating over which we prefer ... rainy and humid or sun drenched and hot barn market days ... it's a toss up ... either way,we end up soaking wet.
Here's some of the fun from 
last week's Gypsy Barn Market ...
Quit cryin' Beth ... let's sit and stuff ourselves with 
fresh scones from the tearoom ...
pass the devonshire cream, please ...
Better wipe the crumbs off our faces ... customers are pulling up and popping up the umbrellas ...
Kinda looks like the cia showing up? 
I blurred their license plates ... just in case these ladies really did want to be inconspicuous ...

Umbrella after umbrella showed up ... how sweet macho is the guy holding the leopard 
print brelly for his darling friend?

Some guys even wore there special amphibious rain shoes to make their way to the barn ...
do these look comfy to you?
Hmmmmmmmmm ...

Shoppers shopping fast to let the umbrella holders in-line at the door a chance to get in ...

What do you do when life hands you lemons? ... or Mother Nature hands you rain?
Drinks anyone?
That's really Beth catching the rainwater on the outside tent, that's about to collapse!

What's Jill doing? ... sitting under the tent minding the register ... what?! ... someone has to do that job, too!

Have you signed up for our mailing list yet?
What are you waiting for?
Announcements and coupons for this upcoming Friday night's celebration are coming out in the next day or so ... only to gypsies traveling on the caravan.

See you back at the barn!
