A Great Weekend at the Buggy Barn Quilt Show

The Buggy Barn was so much fun. The show is made up of a lovely group of arts & craft and antiques vendors. Thank you to Ann Lindahl who organizes the show each year. Ann makes wonderful pincushion make-dos and hooked rugs.

Our booths were right next to Marianne, who is the owner of the Picket Fence Country Shop in Coeur d'Alene, ID. She was there with the most amazing, hand carved house lights. I fell completely in love with these, and could not resist purchasing the white, two story farm house in the photo. These houses are made in Oregon and each one takes four days to carve. Please visit Marianne's website for more information about her shop, and to inquire about the availability of
these fabulous houses.

One of our favorite vendors is Virginia Cole of Galloping Pony Studio. The makes the most wonderful miniature quilt collages. She creatively incorporates vintage ephemera and other miscellaneous items into her artwork. All of her pieces include quotes or sayings that lend a sentimental and meaningful feel to the work. Please see her website for more information.

Lizzie from Lizzy Lou's Handmades was also at the show. She participates in our show as well as in the Custer Craft Show. Her primitive country painting is some of the best. She painted these shoes for us out of vintage pair we had given her. I love them! Thanks Lizzie.

Another of our favorite vendors that participate in our show is Chuck and Joni of Branches. They make great outdoor (or indoor) wood decor. Their work is whimsical and fun. At the Buggy Barn they were selling Halloween and harvest theme items. The photos are from our Barn Bazaar where they sold Spring themed items.

Don't forget this weekend is the Funky Junk Antique Show in Sandpoint, ID. Holly, who hosts the show with her friend Jennifer, was at the Bugger Barn with her mother selling antiques. The Funky Junk sale is sure to be a fun event - Don't miss it!

Hope you enjoyed the little tour of some of the crafts at the show
