Before it gets too far behind me… I have to share my trip over to Born In A Barn. Born in a Barn is a craft fair/antique fair/re-purpose fair held in a field south of Sheridan, Wyoming. Coincidently, also just a few miles from the people that drove to South Dakota to pick up our puppies! I got to drive 3 hours to Sheridan, they drove to Sturgis to get their pup and mine! I love leapfrogging puppies like that! As I was waiting their return, I strolled around BiaB.
There were lots of vendors with “No Photos” signs, so most of these are long distance… but you get the idea. This isn’t a common kind of thing around here, so it made it much more fun! Vendors came from multiple states right into the early snowstorm we had! Many people were cold and wet, and the parking area in the field was muddy, but those of us that attended were happy they’re tough!
Old signs, cabinets, pallets, weavings, jewelry, new signs, baskets, lights, rugs, clothing, soap, you name it… it was probably there!
I went through everything twice just to make sure I didn’t miss anything.
My favorite? Besides the things I bought??? These. Yes, typical plasma cut patterns… but now on handsaws and cream cans! That was very cool. I’m not an elk, bear, or moose decor person though, so I didn’t get one… but with the “right” pattern, I might have!
Oh, and remember Lucy’s Sheep Camp, where I buy all my wool for my soapstones and felting projects???
They were there! I may be buying some of that yellow felted wool on the top… I do have two more Christmas stockings to make!
It was a fun and different time.
Maybe we’ll do this again next year!
I have to share this…
Look at the look on her face the first time she tried to make it across the cattleguard!
