must go: Jack's Barn!

You need to get to "Jack's Barn"...You won't meet Jack...he was the former owner of this amazing structure...But you will meet Chris and Darren.
These fellas are the current owners and they have spent 18 months re-furbishing the space and sharing it with the public. Long dormant as a storage space and chock full with vintage goodies and antiques collected by Jack, Chris and Darren have now opened it as a multi-dealer shop with gobs of fun stuffs and some still un-refurbished space that they will let you search through in search of something great...






My wonderful friend Sue Parker of Skippy Doodle Designs (hopefully many of you have met the amazing Sue at our events) is big sister to Chris and #1 cheerleader to Jack's Barn...Sue invited us down to show us around, and with camera in hand we had a wonderful prowl about...

I came home with goodies galore and the taste for more time there...look at what we found...







Thanks go to Allie too, she made the trip more fun and kept the kids happy on a hot, hot day...
Here are her fave finds...Allie is a super teen, with great taste and personal style!




HATS OFF!!! to Chris and Darren!!!

..and all the very best to them as they further renovate this space...and please put it on you place of spots to visit in your antique touring and junking jaunts...I will be back there soon on my regular rounds in search of great vintage loot and I look forward to seeing them and their wonderful place!

You just gotta get to the barn...

SEE THEIR SITE for a list of their special events...they do a wonderful series of tent sales and flea markets and car shows on their grounds....catch one!

Thanks to Sue for sharing her wonderful world with me...we'll be posting soon on more artful adventures with her in Connecticut....
