This one's for all you junk-lovin' pickers out there... {A Summer Discovery!}

My husband and three boys had come across some place they couldn't wait to take me back to, just 20 minutes from our house. (My reaction when we got there didn't disappoint them! :)

We drove down a beautiful country road, passing farms and pastures along the way. We came to little red farmhouse with a long, single level shop behind it. To the right was a shed, and to the left several outbuildings including a barn. As we drove into the driveway I got a glimpse into the shed, overflowing with antiques. This is what I saw...


And this...


I spoke with the couple who owned this farm (picker's heaven) and had lived there for many years. They welcomed us to look through all the buildings, explaining where all of the light switches were located. I asked if it was alright if I took some pictures. She didn't mind at all...



I've never seen such a collection of iron beds! (Not to mention chairs - hundreds of them!)






If you are ever in the Seattle area and want to stop by, you can find this place here!

Happy treasure hunting!

    1. I know what you mean! Since I had my family with me, I had to speed walk through the property... I'm sure I missed a lot. So much to take in! Thanks for stopping by. :)

    1. I can't believe it either... but I did. I didn't have a whole lot of time to look, and a couple of the pieces I was in search of were above my budget. But, I am happy to have found this place in case I "need" something specific in the future. Always fun to have sources. Hope you have a nice weekend and thank you for stopping by!

  7. Hi Julie! Wowsers! Wish this place was closer to me I'd probably be there once a week. Not only were the treasures amazing but that farm. A dream. I'll be watching to see what you snag when you go back for something you "need." Hugs, Pat at Bringing French Country Home
