One of the most charming aspects of living where I do
in the Midwest is the summer fleamarketing!
Nellie’s Barn Sale
is an annual must-attend for me
in the Rockford, Illinois area.
Many humble treasures from Nellie’s
became mine the other day.
What did I buy?
Great big ol’ heavy vintage laundry bag.
Faded-soft vintage American flag.
Galvanized pail with its old label attached.
Handmade round linen tablecloth.
What you’ll find?
Painted tables and chairs.
Farmhouse style…and the unexpected!
A peek inside the barn.
How charming is the entrance?
Doris sort of steals the show, yes?
Two humans at a time shop inside Doris.
Nellie’s is the brainchild of this lovely exuberant kindred spirit.
What a pleasure to visit my hometown heroes
of Rockford and share them with you!
Have a favorite summertime fleamarket destination?
Peace to you right where you are.
