Barn Sale Fun!

OK, the barn sale is here.  We had a line at the door and I was trying to hold them back as the vendors added the finishing touches on their booths!!!  Hurry up guys, I can't hold them much longer.................... 
We had wonderful home made refreshments all weekend.....cookies, cupcakes, candies, breads, lots of yummy treates to keep our customers happy. 
And everywhere you looked fall was in the air.  And thankfully the temperatures dropped and the humidity went away.  It was the perfect weather for a fall festival. 
A little Halloween here and there...... 
Beautiful quilts.......... 
And more beautiful quilts.  Look at the backdrop behind this booth.   
And of course, candy corn! 
Lisa and her daughter working the cash registers.  We had some very long lines most of Saturday and apologize for that but also thank you for being patient.  I know they were working as fast as they could and truly appreciate you hanging in there with us.  We're working on maybe more cash registers for next year.  Yes, there will be a next year! 
Sue is so excited to get one of all the new recipe cards!  She was so nervous they would all get gone before she could get them.  Funny girl Sue!!  Thanks so much for loving the cards. 
The pictures don't do the barn justice.  It was the perfect setting for the sale. 
Lots of people milling around with lots of great things to see. 
Ken Hardee had some great gourds. 
Nancy (Lisa's Mom) worked on hand quilting a quilt all weekend and was willing to show anyone how to quilt.  I do believe they got it finished by the end of Saturday.  Debbie Powell (local quilt instructor) looks on as Nancy quilts.  Debbie brought so many beautiful quilts to the barn. 
More Halloween............ 
There was a huge variety of product throughout the barn.  I was so busy helping customers that I didn't get to take pictures so a friend took over that job for me.  We have lots more which I'll try and post later.  This at least gives you an idea of what the barn was all about. 
Time to get ready for Christmas.............. 
This sweet gal wins the prize for coming the farthest to the barn sale............all the way from California.  Thanks for visiting Bridgid.  It was so nice to meet you in person.  Safe travels and maybe we'll see you next year!

To everyone that attended and participated in the Barn Sale, a big huge thank you from Lisa Treadaway and myself.  We truly appreciate each and every one of you and your support.  We took a vote after the sale yesterday and we're going to do it again next year.  We have a few things to tweak but all in all, things went great and everyone had a great time, customers and vendors alike.  So stay tuned for details on next years dates.
