I went to this sale a bit ago, and thought I'd show you what I saw...it's in Estacada, Oregon and this lady has converted her "barn" into a store of her finds. Her house is set across from it. She opens it twice a year for the sale and has art classes as well. It's called the Tole Barn...here are a few pics...
looking into a doorway like this makes you want to go in...doesn't it?
and there was even an upstairs area! That's where she is set up for her art classes too. My sis-in-law found a silver platter that she loves! I want a barn! Really I do!!!
We stumbled on a great second hand store where I scored my find! To some it would look like a junk shop...but to me, amidst the boxes and boxes of stuff I knew I would find something. I could have spent hours in there...and I found it! It was $22 frame and all!
The stitchery was under glass in the frame but without a mat...so I bought and cut a mat board to fit.
Isn't it just beautiful? I love the real leaves and the angel that they set in there...and the gold metallic in the threads...and the staining from being time worn...I also love finding and giving new love and life to things that others don't find interesting or want anymore. It is hanging proudly in my studio.
