Now the best thing about participating in a Barn Sale are all the friends made along the way. I’ve only just been introduced to this connected community of artisans who network, share, create and celebrate together. My only regret is that I only had a few moments to sneak away to peruse the other booths at The Sweet Tea and Shopping event this weekend. Here are few highlights from my brief excursion..
Linda from Everyday Gourmet is a kind creative spirit who provided fresh, gourmet flavorful dishes for all the voracious appetites. All smiles from Alexa Lett and friend who provided fab vintage finds. January Alexander of J.Alexander Home (who, by the way is hosting, her own Vintage Farm Fair, Handmade Harvest on Oct. 12) also stopped by to pick up her copy of Gatherings. And I think my favorite booth was Linda Stowe of Maxine Q Jewelry .. she also creates wonderful upcycled fashion pieces.
Now, its time to rest up before our next event, The City Farmhouse show in Franklin,TN. Looking forward to seeing some familiar faces, Oct. 11-12!
