As I have said before, Sharon and I have met some wonderful people in our travels for this business. This weekend was no exception. We decided at the last minute (when I finished picking corn...yeah!!!) to go over to Gambrills, MD for the fall sale of The Barn Show (http://www.thebarnshow.com/). We had met Gail a couple of times before, but never attended this show. She is a dedicated auction attendee at Crumpton, is involved in a sale in the Frederick area (http://www.chartreuseandco.com/tagsale.html)that we attended in the summer, and has a booth in an antique mall. We also met one of the other Barn Show partners, Pam, who is a decorator by trade. These girls have got it going on, let me tell you.
Their sale is really great...totally different from ours, but great! The beautiful horse barn was decorated to the hilt for fall...mums and pumpkins everywhere, and a real feel for the season. (Didn't hurt that the weather was BEAUTIFUL, either!) They had a wonderful selection of furniture and accessories really READY to put in your house...no work required. The style is a bit different from ours...lots of muted colors, with a French feel, even. Just lovely. We had a great time and plan to get together with these girls soon to trade ideas and share a meal somewhere...love networking with other barn sale gals!
