Leaving The City For The Country

Yesterday as I was reading blogs, I saw an interesting post on Wild Raspberry--Barn Sale. The post said the sale was going on in the city of Oak Grove, Missouri. So I did a little research, decided we could find it and so this morn- ing we hopped in the Sportage and off we went. From our house, Oak Grove is about 35 miles out. It was a cloudy day but still nice for a drive to the country. The red barn was our indicator that we had arrived.
This beautiful landscape was on the left side of the drive as we
went up the gravel drive.
After exiting the car we walked up the drive to the barn and
saw all these goodies waiting for us to look at! There was a
wide variety of antiques and collectables with a wide variety
of prices. For the most part I thought their prices were pretty
reasonable. the bigger pieces had higher prices of course but
that is to be expected.
This framed marriage certificate was hanging on one of
the walls and it fascinated me. It was hard to read so I
wasn't able to tell what year the couple got married
but I thought it was so fragile looking!
These two pictures show a couple of the "rooms" they had
set up in the barn. Everything was in good shape, clean and
of really nice quality.
This is the kitchen vignette set up . If you look on the shelf
under the cabinet doors--off to your right, you'll see some
little spice containers. (they are above the brown box
behind the lamp) Anyway they came home with us and
have Japan on them. There were three sweet and three
savory shakers. I tried to get Ken to purchase the spoon
that's hanging from the door --- he could eat his cereal
with it but NOOOOOOOOOO! We had a great time and in the next picture you'll see
what we brought home in the Sportage.
Ken got the foot stool for his tired tootsies, I found another
scale I was soo excited. It's a little more "used" but it's
smaller than the one I picked up at the Spinach Fest.
Some of the other things: two little pumpkin trays, a
plate, a large canning jar, my spice shakers, an ink
bottle and my most fav find--the WOODEN BOX.
It has a hinged lid and will hold a lot of loot. (not
sure what loot but...) The box was a bargain at 18.95!
It is in excellent condition.
Most of the items at this sale are from RED BARN
ANTIQUES IN OAK GROVE, MISSOURI.
Stay tuned --come back sometime tomorrow and find
out where we went after we left the Barn Sale.
~Keep on Dreaming~

  4. An interesting place for sure. I love, love that little box and that kitchen scale is quite the find. You and Mr. Ken have fun weekends thanks for sharing them with us.

    Hubby and I brought the herd in and cut out the large calves to wean. It's been a very noisey weekend around here.
