My favorite summer time activity with my girlfriends is to hit the local flea markets on Saturday morning. 

With coffee in hand and cash in my pocket I am on a mission to find vintage treasures. 

It gets a little bit harder to satisfy that need in the winter months here in Colorado. 

My saving grace is The Barn.  


The Barn was built in 1905 and has been turned into an antique market. 

 Each stall is a different shop.  Some carry antiques, some new items and most carry an assortment of the two. 



I have spent my share of money in this shop. The owner, Alice, has beautiful ironstone.

This is Chic Junque.  The owner is Beth….who I know many of you are familiar with. 

Her shop is stunning to look at.  She is amazing at display and she always has a beautiful assortment of fabric items and antiques that she has spruced up.  She even makes the most incredible bracelets from vintage earrings.

I can't stop in The Barn without strolling through her space.




I love knowing that every time I shop here there will be something different.

I have left with a vintage typewriter, ironstone and 10 yards of Amy Butler fabrics….not a bad day.

I hope you enjoyed looking at one of my favorite places to shop for vintage finds…and new things too!


ps.  I will be drawing the winner for The Busy Scrapper tomorrow.
