The other weekend Sweet Clover Barn organized a special event, the Hometalk Halloween Hunt, with fellow antique/vintage stores Chartreuse and Co, Lucketts and On a Whim. Bloggers were invited to shop the stores, buy a treasure and then post about the creative thing they did with it.
I'll be joining the link party later in October but I know for certain - even though I found 2 treasures - my use won't be creative. I picked up 2 amazing runners at the Chartreuse and Co barn sale. The Leopard by Stanton is 23" by 96" and was $69 and the 100% Wool Alex Papachristidis Thaleia Diamonds by Langhorne Carpets is 2' 8" by 10' and was $87!
First up at the Halloween Hunt was a visit to Sweet Clover Vintage Barn Sale in Frederick - their tag line is fresh picks * inspired design * uncommon finds. This is the view of the upstairs - the barn is full of great finds.
Very creative cake and dessert stands by Sweet Stands.
Burlap over a support pole - very creative.
Next was a stop at Chartreuse and Co's Barn Sale in Frederick. There's a cool water wheel outside.
If I remember correctly this velvet chair was under $90
Some more of the bound remnants for sale.
Unfortunately I didn't have time to head over to Lucketts and On A Whim (Lucketts/Leesburg) but they're on my list for a future trip. If you're in the area, be sure to check out all their sites and the dates for the upcoming barn sales.
