I drive past this unassuming milk barn all the time but I've had a sneaking suspicion something was up with this place.
I've seen furniture go in the back of the barn looking like this...
...and come out the front of the barn looking like this.
Well, it's probably none of my business but I just had to find out what kind of cows they have in there? So I
just showed up with my camera finagled an invitation for a tour inside.
Imagine my surprise when I discovered there haven't been any cows near that barn for years? Two of my neighbors have been getting ready for their summer furniture sale and they've got just about everything you could want.
You like brightly painted furniture, they can help you out.
How about some self-levitating chairs?
Got those too in just about every color.
Or maybe you are more of a pink girl.
Sorry, I got there first and if this chandy is going home with anyone it is going home with me. So consider it SOLD.
But this little cherub is looking for a home. Really they have everything in here.
Perhaps you have been dreaming of a brown plaid La-Z-Boy recliner...well, okay, I think I heard they were expecting a shipment next week, check back then.
But if by chance you have been looking for a hand carved mantel salvaged from the Governor's Mansion in Utah they can hook you right up.
"What? Are you kidding me"?
No, I don't ever kid about things of great historical importance take a look through there.
It's the real deal.

There it is, the upper mantel piece of the Moorish Parlor. (I guess the Moroccan fad has been around longer than I thought.) This room was redecorated a while ago and the architectural pieces salvaged....
...and this piece found it's way to the milk barn....
and into the milk barn sale that will be this month.
But if you just can't wait it is available prior to the sale here.
Sorry for the onslaught of photos but this mantel is just amazingly beautiful. The colors so are so soft and faded and this detail is unbelievable.
If this doesn't make you want a Hookah Bar in your house, well I don't know what will.
Seriously,I can imagine this statement piece being used in so many ways.
So that's what's up with the milk barn and I don't suppose I can ever call it unassuming again.
I will most likely be the first one in line on sale day, flicking my fingers and saying "Open, open, open".
So, I just have one more question? I really want to know what happened to the cows but nobody is talking!
