Along line of vehicles took over Port Royal Road this past month, waiting for their turn to get into the Fall Barn Sale. The recently converted Amish barn is host to one of the areas best fall excursions.
The Fall Barn Sale is a unique marketplace that has over 50 vendors from all over middle Tennessee and southern Kentucky as well as a few from Ohio, Georgia and Florida. Vendors are hand picked by the barn owner, Shirley Thomas, for their specific taste, style and bright disposition. Booths ranged from antiques, vintage, repurposed furniture, handmade collectables, art and jewelry.
Tickets were $10 a piece for Friday September 30 or Saturday October 1. A special event “Pickin Party” was set up for Thursday evening for visitors to enjoy early shopping.
Trailers were filled with pumpkins, gourds and mums, and live music filled the air. Food trucks lined the driveway and a small coffee shop was set up outside the barn.
Shirley’s love for junking and all things vintage inspired the idea of the Fall Barn Sale. The old Amish dairy barn was completely renovated, with electricity, quaint touches, and chandeliers with easy access for anyone.
Visitors could sit under a large tent at beautifully decorated tables to discuss their purchases and enjoy lunch from the Barnside Cafe.
The Fall Barn Sale is held on the Thomas farm off Port Royal Road. The fully operational farm harvests corn, soybeans, wheat and dark fired tobacco.
