News to share ...

I have news to share ... that I have been keeping under my hat and can now finally reveal ... do you remember when I mentioned I was going to take a look at a site for a future Gypsy barn market? ... well I did and well ... it was perfect ... all the details have been worked out ... and I can official say "it's official ... we're going to have a Gypsy Barn Market !!" Yes, I said "we" and that is the best part ... I get to travel down this new path of adventure with my close friend Beth, a.k.a. Gypsy Fish ... how awesome is that?! All the hard work will be worth it, I know we will have a blast creating and cavorting ; )

This has been a dream of mine for a few years now. After learning what a blog was ... and cruising around all of the amazing and inspirational sites out there, I spotted a new retail trend ... the "occasional sale" ... sales held usually on a monthly or quarterly basis. I'm sure you gals have spotted them as well. It seemed like the perfect fit for me ... do my art, shop my flea markets, round it all up and open shop only a few days a month ... low overhead and a flexible schedule. My frustration? They were all on the West Coast ... or at least half way to the West coast!! Way to far for this East Coast girl to participate in an occasional sale ... what to do? Open my own!

 I will fill you in on ALL of the details very, very soon ... so please stay posted ......you can also keep informed of what's going on at the gypsy barn by stopping by our new blog 'www.gypsybarnmarket.blogspot.com' 

I truly can't wait to show you ALL the goods we've been squirreling away ... ALL the jewelry that's been created .... many, many boutique items ... oh! and painted furniture ... fresh flowers ... the list goes on and on!

I'm also hoping this will be the chance to meet some of my fellow bloggers that may be nearby or who want to make the trip ... hmmm, maybe a blog party in the future?

Stay tuned fellow gypsy sisters!!

  14. Jill, I wanted to thank you for the beautiful ribbon you made me for the blog party, I wore it too. I just posted pics of the party. Have a great Friday, Theresa

  15. HI, new to the blog world and just found your blog.
    I had the same dream as you did. Wanted to do sales every few months, a place to store my stuff etc. Two years ago this July Ended up finding a empty church/chapel and opened instead 3 days a week. All the hard work you are doing will be worth it.
    Will be watching you and cheering you on.
    Cheers, cindykay

  16. Gosh I wish I lived nearer to you so I could go to your barnsale. I can just imagine all the wonderful things to be had.

    Good luck to you in your new venture.


  17. Hi Jill, Thank's for stopping by today. When we were out on the South East coast. I found that it was real hard to find vintage garden for a really good price. But out here in Califorina the prices are great. For the wire planters Or maybe I was just lucky those days. Congratulations on your new venture. Have a good weekend...Julian

  19. There's nothing like this in Kansas (that I know of) and I've had this little thought in the waaaay back of my mind to do the this for several years now. Of course something always stops me--too busy, no money, no time, no help.

    I'm so happy that your dream has come to fruition, and I can't wait to see how it blooms! I am so excited for you!!!!!

  20. This will be a wonderful event with you two talented girls hosting it! I am surely going to do my best to get out your way to attend and to meet you both in person!
    How fun!
