I heart old barns
Many of you know that we have a passion for antique and vintage everything. Give us something that is rustic, rusty, patina-ed, and chipped and we'll consider it well loved and find it a place to be enjoyed.
We have made a very fun and successful small business out of connecting people with vintage and repurposed items. To further support our obsession, you should know that we live in an late 1800's limestone school house and we bought a historic church. And, I have been known to pull over to the side of the road to take a picture of an old place that has character. I love making up stories about the history and the people who lived in or used the space.
For this old barn, I don't need to make up much of the story. It used to stand on my grandparent's place. My dad owns the property now.
This old red barn always had a commanding presence in the farm yard and was used until the quonset was built.
This photo was taken on the weekend of my grandparent's sale. Even then, we knew that the barn's days were numbered.
For those of you who enjoy a beautiful, old building, here are a few images to enjoy.
