Great Stuff!!

Just wanted you to get a glimpse of what we will have at the upcoming TWO CHICKS COUNTRY CHRISTMAS CUSTOMER APPRECIATION DAY sale on the 21st of THIS MONTH! Yes, folks, November is here! Can you believe it? Seems like only yesterday we were preparing for the SPRING sale, and here we are, getting ready for Christmas! It really has been a great year, and as a way of showing our appreciation, we love having you as our guests for lunch, or just coffee and cookies, but most of all, catching up on what's going on with YOU!

We worked for quite awhile this weekend on arranging furniture, and still have several more pieces to come upstairs. Hopefully by this time next week, all of the furniture will be in place, and we will be pulling everything we have been gathering out of the bins and boxes in which they are stored. That's the fun part! And, before too long, we will be decorating the tree, too. Can't wait for you to see all we have in store for you!

Oh, and stay time, I will show you pics of the awesome barnwood and beadboard cabinets from PA!

Something NEW!

Since I usually give you pictures of THINGS (you know, things we are either getting ready to sell or things we just sold!), I thought I'd give you, in this post, a picture of people! I really just want you to get an idea of the kind of wonderful customers, FANS, really, that we have! These three awesome ladies have been coming to our barn sales for quite a while, and not only are they great customers, we've become friends! And, they take a vacation day for the sale, so they can always come on Friday to get the best selection!

We have met so many wonderful people since we started this endeavor you really wouldn't believe it. We have many repeat customers, and love to catch up with them during the sales. Last year, for the first time, we hosted a Country Christmas Customer Appreciation Day event, and we are doing the same this year. The date is November 21, the Saturday before Thanksgiving, and the time is from 8am until 6pm. This is a one day only sale, and we will be serving lunch (on the house!) from around 11 until 1. We will also, as always, have snacks...cookies, cake, coffee, etc., available all day. Looking forward to seeing you all there! Check back next week for pics of the barn taking shape with lots of new (not NEW, just new to us!)furniture. We started moving things up there last night, and it is going to be AWESOME!!!

Our Fall Sale...

was a huge success!! We had a GREAT time, catching up with old friends, and meeting alot of new ones. I really can't thank you, our customers, enough. You make all of the hard work we do preparing for the sales, soooo worthwhile! And, since pictures really can tell a better story than I can (especially this time of day!), I am adding LOTS of them this time! And remember, our Country Christmas Customer Appreciation Day is coming up soon. Nov. 21 is the date...but more on that later! Hope you have a great day!

Well, good day blog followers! I am so glad you decided to stop by...the BARN SALE is coming up SOOONN!!! Sharon and I are as busy as bees...the furniture is all arranged, and we are adding LOTS of smalls now. We'll be putting the final touches on in about a week, and the sale is NEXT Friday, September 18 and Saturday, September 19th. We'll be open from 9 til 5, both days...makes it less confusing, don't you think?
The pics included in today's post are two pieces of furniture from that auction awhile back. The PAIN of that trip is long forgotten, and we have only fond memories of it now. Can't WAIT for you to see all of the cool furniture we got that day! See you soon!

Okay, I'm just a BAD BLOGGER!! I get so busy with, well, LIFE, you know, that I forget to blog. What can I say...I'm an active girl! And sitting in front of a computer is like torture to me! But, I just HAD to tell you about our latest adventure! Sharon and I went to an auction a couple of weeks ago in Littlestown, PA. Not far from Gettysburg, it was an easy 2 3/4 hour drive, and we were hoping to at least each get one piece of furniture. We went in a short bed pickup, left at 5am, and made it there with plenty of time to browse around and check out the great furniture.

The sale was advertised as an estate sale, but this was no ordinary estate. The elderly man had owned an antique store. So, his collection was extensive. And, we learned that a Philadelphia auction house had already hauled away the "good stuff" for a catalog auction. But, we were VERY happy with what was left!

It was a long, hot day, but we had a GREAT time, and ended up with 21 pieces of furniture!! Needless to say, we planned a trip for the next day.

Sunday, we waited until 7 to know, slept in!!! We went with the same short bed pickup, and a bigger truck, hoping to collect all of our treasures. We CAREFULLY loaded them piece by piece, putting blankets and straps wherever we thought we needed them. Well, we STILL didn't get it all, so we planned another trip for later in the week. No big deal, really, since the drive wasn't all that bad, and we were sure we could get the rest in one truck.

I say no big deal, because at the time, that's how it seemed. Well, that was before we took a wrong turn that took us into WORSE traffic on a Sunday afternoon (and 20 miles or so out of the way), and then had a truck breakdown at the WaWa just west of the Bay Bridge!!!

So all of the furniture on the bigger truck (of course) had to be unloaded and reloaded onto the truck and trailer that my DEAR husband brought up to rescue us! And, the truck spent two nights at WaWa, waiting for a tow truck to bring it home!

The final chapter of this LONG story was a trip up on Thursday to get the last of the furniture. That trip, thankfully, was uneventful!

In the end, we were still REALLY blown away by the bargains we got. Can't WAIT for the fall barn sale, September 18th and 19th!! YOU WILL LOVE THIS STUFF!!

What a GREAT auction!!! Between the two of us, we bought 21!!! pieces of furniture!!

Then THIS happened!!

Yes folks, summer is here, Sharon is finished with school for a few months, and my wheat and barley harvest is finished. Do you know what that means??? We are ready to plan the FALL BARN SALE! The dates have been set...SEPTEMBER 18th and 19th. And, we are ready to shop! We made our first big shopping excursion last week, and are ready to really get going, finding the awesome bargains for you. In the coming weeks, we will be shopping, cleaning, painting and repairing, taking pictures of our great finds along the way. Check back soon, we'll be posting more often now that we are in barn sale mode!!

Look What You Missed!

If you didn't make it to our Barn Sale last weekend, we are SORRY you missed all the fun! If you WERE there, we want to THANK YOU for your support, excitement, and complements. We truly have a WONDERFUL time preparing for these sales. It does take a lot of hard work, but you make it all worth while.

A special thanks to all of the antiques dealers who come as soon as we open, and get us rolling. We try to keep our prices low enough that you can make a profit, too, and we really appreciate all you do for us...word of mouth advertisement is the best kind!

We are tossing around dates now for our fall sale, and I will post them as soon as we have them. In the meantime, email us if you have ANY suggestions to make our BARN SALES even bigger and better.

We've Been Featured

Yes, Two Chicks Barn Sale has been featured on the blog of Photographer Extraordinaire Melissa Manzione. Well, yes, she IS my daughter, so does that mean the wonderful things she said about our sale aren't true??? I don't think so!!! Check out the great pics of our Christmas sale at . And don't forget only one week left until our SPRING SALE!!! See you there!

Sharon and I made LOADS of progress on Saturday and things are shaping up really well. We decided a sneak peek was in order...but you will have to come on April 3rd and 4th to see the rest!! Enjoy!

It's right around the corner!

Oh what a difference 10 (9, actually!) days makes!! Since my last post we have started moving furniture around, and we are getting EXCITED about APRIL 3rd and 4th! Right now, the barn is in a mad state of disarray, but that will be changing very soon! We plan to work up there all day Saturday, and expect things to really be taking shape by the end of the day. In the meantime, we are buying, cleaning, and painting. OH and, potting up some beautiful pansies in enamelware and old cookware.

Sharon went to PA last weekend and came home with a beautiful oak bakers cabinet. Wait 'til you see it!

Can't wait to see you!!!

Yes, believe it or not, the Barn Sale is less than a month away! The deck doesn't really look ready yet, but don't fret! We really are working on some awesome pieces for our APRIL 3rd and APRIL 4th sale (don't forget, Friday and Saturday only). And!!! wait until you see our cute postcards! They arrived in the mail yesterday, and they will be arriving in your mailbox about two weeks before the sale. If you are not on our mailing list and would like to be, please send your address to me at and I'd be glad to add you to our growing list! Or, if you would rather receive our email version, you can send that to the same address.

Certainly, I can't post without a picture of one of Sharon's awesome auction finds. Wait until you see this bench all cleaned and waxed!!

Can't wait to see you at the sale, and don't forget to check back for more pics later!!!

Having just realized that the Sunday we had planned for the third day of our spring barn sale is PALM SUNDAY, we have decided to omit that date from our sale. The dates for our sale are now...Friday, April 3rd from 10-6 and Saturday, April 4th from 8-6. Please note that we have extended our Saturday hours in order to accommodate our Sunday customers. Hope to see you there!!!

Okay, folks, the real work has begun!!! The weather was sooo beautiful this past weekend that I got out and worked outside...sorting, scrubbing, sanding, you name it! And, I wanted to show off the BEAUTIFUL salmon colored cabinet I found in PA. And yes, those are strawberry crates, and I even have dividers and strawberry boxes to put in them. The string winder is really a cool piece, too. It came from a country store auction on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

Keep checking back, there is still a whole pile of awesome stuff in the shed, not to mention Sharons stash!!! P

Friday, April 3 from 10am-6pm; Saturday, April 4 from 8am-3pm; and Sunday, April 5 from noon-4pm. Now, we will get busy shopping, cleaning, repairing and painting, to make this the best barn sale yet!

FINALLY...We're back!

I'd like to introduce Mr. & Mrs. Nicholas Manzione!!!

Okay, this post really has little to do with the Barn Sale, I am really just giving an excuse and asking forgiveness for my recent lack of information about our sales. But...I wanted to share the reason I have been so busy, and show off a picture of my beautiful daughter who became a Mrs. on January 3rd. No, these weren't taken at THE barn, but a wonderful barn in the Hurlock area.
Now...about our next barn sale...we are in the planning stages...will be having a meeting next week...and will post dates as soon as we have them. It will most likely be in April, in hopes of avoiding the COLD weather we had last year for our spring barn sale. We HAVE had some luck with shopping, I went to 2 really good auctions early in December (one was a country store auction, so look for THOSE cool items at the spring barn sale!!!), and Sharon contines to frequent Delmar auction and O'Neils. Now that things have calmed down at the Scott household, I will be shopping ALOT, Crumpton, here I come!!! So...check back soon for dates and pictures of our SPRING BARN SALE!!!
