Kansas Barn Sale.
This event is held each fall near Hesston, Kansas and features vintage, handmade and antique goods along with food, live music, and great fun. We learned about it several months ago and applied to be a vendor. We were thrilled to be accepted into the juried show and spent a lot of time working on what we might exhibit.
To complicate things, I was scheduled to be working out of state. We had a plan. And, like most of our best plans, things happen. Just before the show, my husband got really sick and it made it hard for me to feel comfortable being a six hour drive away in the event he started to feel bad again. So, we made the decision that I would stay close to home and help at the show. We had a time trying to make decisions about what was the best things to do. In the end, I think we made the right decision, but not without a lot of our usual chaos and scrambling. Thanks goodness for my mom and dad who helped tremendously.
On the morning of the show, we set up all of our items and had the chance to really take in the whole event. It was excellent - the best hospitality, a great crowd, excellent sales, and meeting new friends and reconnecting with old friends.
If you have a list of "must-do" fall activities, please add the Kansas Barn Sale. You won't be disappointed in the quality of the shopping, the entertainment and great food.
