Several times a year Caroline hosts a sale in the 8000-square foot barn on her beautiful property in Loudon County, Virginia. The multi-level building is filled to rafters with all manner of European, Belgian and Scandinavian-style old and new furniture and home accessories.
Several areas are set up as 'rooms.' Everything is for sale, from the tabletop items to the tables to the lighting. There are cabinets filled with treasures begging to be explored and charming vignettes every where you turn.
There were lots of vintage, reclaimed and re-purposed pieces.
There was also a nice selection of garden and outdoor pieces.
This event is tons of fun. Caroline is absolutely lovely and the people working the sale could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Wear comfortable shoes and clothes you don't mind getting dirty - I say that because I was climbing around in some place to get a closer look at things. Also, don't be in a hurry. I probably made three rounds. I scooped up a few things the first time through, started a pile outside, and went back in twice more.
Here are two of my favorite finds - past readers know I am fixated on the look of Scandinavian interiors right now - so I was on the hunt for antlers. When I find my fur throw it will go on the sofa by the fireplace.
Come back tomorrow for Day 3: I meet Loi Thai and make a pilgrimage to Tone on Tone.
