The Urban Barn Grand Opening

and it was truly Grand!

Today was the Grand Opening of a magical place in Escondido, Ca. I have been waiting for this day! The Urban Barn was once an automotive garage with roll up doors, high ceilings and chains, perfect to hang chandeliers. The mix of the rustic, chic and industrial was truly magical. The inside of the shop is filled with multiple dealers and there were many more sellers outside under a row of tents. You can visit the Urban Barn's blog by clicking HERE.
Here are the photos I took of my visit...enjoy!

DAY 2 of the Grand Opening Saturday July 17!

Industrial meets Chic

Creative minds were plentiful!
A Princess in Jail...strange to some, yet to others it brings a smile.

Rita's Chalk Headboard that I know she wanted to keep for herself!
Can you blame her?

This old truck was dreamy! Want.

Loved this idea for displaying earrings.

I purchased a few necklaces and cuffs from friends.
Below is my pirate booty!

A Sailors Valentine Pin Cushion Box.
I have been wanting one of these for years and I finally have one!

I love these necklaces from Celia. Each one, one of a kind!

My favorite lady who creates the most awesome cuffs that everyone loves!
We carry her line at our shop.

She works her magic on old bottles
This is one from my personal collection.

This was my very first pick at the barn from Mary's space. I will be transforming it into a jewelry display. If it turns out the way I think it will, I'll post the after-shot here! :)

Hope you enjoyed seeing the Urban Barn today.
There is so much more to be seen so be sure to visit for yourself!

Linda is the driving force behind the Urban Barn,
but she has many helpers that make it all come together!

Sparkler Fun*

I found a large vintage box of 1950's sparklers when Jenna was just a wee one, and every year we have opened just one little carton of 6. I can't believe they still light. The original price on the box said $2 per box or 15 cents per carton. The box reads "Harmless" For Indoor and Outdoor Illumination. Directions : Hold in Hand -Light Silver End.

I'll think we'll stick to outdoor use....

Jenna's Triforce (from Zelda) off!

I was going for the statue of liberty...

and this was supposed to be a heart but it fizzled out before I could finish.
Happy Fourth!

Forgot Your Password?

Just a quick blog post had been so long since I logged into this blog, that Mr.Google asked me, "Forgot Your Password?" Chalk it up to getting old. I guess I will have to start writing these things down. :(

Not much new..working at my shop which has kept us all very busy. We are having a great summer..the economy has taken a turn for the better. . finally! Thankfully, our shop is in a tourist destination with near perfect weather, so many of our customers come from all over the U.S and abroad, for a little R&R and to escape the heat. (above photos are from the shop)

I did manage to find some time to add new items to the website..this doesn't happen as often as I would like, but anyone who runs an online store knows can relate. :)

If you'd like to browse...just click here!

I hope everyone has a Happy Fourth of July weekend with friends and family.
