Y’all I caught wind of this adorable little barn sale happening this past weekend about 5 minutes up the road! I thought to myself, “How in the world have you never heard of this place before?” Needless to say, I loaded up the kiddos and my assistant Kenzie and off we went.
We arrived at FeatherStone Farm, which had the cutest little red barn with the doors propped open and breeze blowing through. The entryways were adorned in lovely, natural greenery’s and the atmosphere was just so.…charming. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my afternoon other than browsing the collection of beautiful antiques, gazing at the dried botanicals and soaking in the subtle earthy aroma of local handmade soaps and balms.
Y’all this is my heaven! What you may not know about me, is I have a dream to open a shop one day, and seeing another local couple planting seeds like this in our little community makes my heart burst with excitement and my passion burn deeper.
I truly believe we crave the wholesomeness of a slower time, where we made things with our hands and savored the process of bringing things together.
I say all this to encourage you to visit places like this one. FeatherStone Farm is situated on a quaint KY backroad. No signs, no ads. Word of mouth is what brought me to this place. Drive the backroads, make the trip to barn sales and pop up shops and support the small businesses that have poured their heart into creating a wonderful experience like the one I had!
So you may be wondering what I brought home from the barn sale. Haha I’m glad you asked! I was drawn to the dried flowers and the old, yet classic pieces like the gold brass bowl and wicker pitcher I picture below. There was literally so much charm it was difficult for me to chose!
I did end up bringing home a locally made candle by Kentucky Girl Candles in addition to my florals, and can I just say, I LOVE the subtle scent of these candles. To me the smell reminds me of sitting on an old porch swing over with a rickety floor beneath my feet.…seriously so good.
