Faded Elegance road trip to Barn House

I know this is a little late…. I am really behind on my blogging! I apologize and promise to be much better from now on, thanks for hanging in there. So with that said...
I gathered up two of my gal pals from Faded Elegance, Katie and Rachael and headed for the Barn House. We left at 5:00 am drove for 3 hours talking the entire time.

I loved the creativity used in all of the displays.

Barn House {Barn} and Entrance
My two lovely partners in crime, Katie and Rachael. Both ladies are very creative Faded Elegance dealers, not to mention endurance shoppers.

I totally had a French market flashback in this dealer space!

The Barn House boys display, beautiful of course!

I loved Tarte’s displays and her idea board. I have one in my office that I am always adding too.

Rachael shopping

I had such a lovely time, seeing friends, taking in all creativity and being surrounded by beautiful things. My pile of finds kept growing……

I love my new pie safe from Tarte!

This was just our first stop; we bought even more on the way home. Thank goodness I drive a truck!
Everywhere we stopped people stared at our huge load bungied on, I am surprised that a treasure didn’t fly off.
We rolled in Downtown Snohomish at 10:00 pm and took over the streets dividing up our treasures. We made several loads into the store as well. Several people walked by scratching their heads wondering what we were doing. A passerby even asked if we were having a sale!
Thank you to my partners in crime; I had a much needed girl’s day. A special thanks to the Barn House, The Vintage Gathering, and all the talented dealers at the markets.
Au revoir~Kimberly
