The Gypsy Junkers Pasture Sale was a lot of fun. Organizers Louis Adan and Dana Hanlon have got it figured out. This was the second time I have attended their sale and they really do a great job of offering the right balance of new and vintage, farmhouse and retro, man-tiques and items that typically appeal to women. I shopped this sale last Friday and came away with some great vintage home decor and some gorgeous vintage jewelry.
This sale takes place twice a year, March and October, in Newnan, Georgia. Vendors set up in a huge pasture on Jim Starr Road and there is plenty of parking along the road and in the pasture. It is a very laid back atmosphere and the quality of merchandise offered is excellent. The only new items that I noticed were offered by a plant nursery and a few vendors were selling homemade crafts. There was painted furniture, re-purposed and upcycled items, yard art, jewelry, and antique and vintage items. They also had barn wood, rusty old metal, and vintage wooden windows and doors for the DIYers looking for supplies. I really liked that they didn’t have multi-level marketing vendors selling new products.
I only had a few hours to shop on Friday so I didn’t even cover all of the booths. I wish I could have stayed longer but doctor appointments and Girl Scout cookie booths limited my shopping time!
I will share some of the cool things that I saw in this post and I will show you what I purchased in another post. First of all this gypsy trailer was apparently the inspiration for the sale. I spoke with Louis and he said he actually bought a run down old wagon and turned it into this beauty.
Here is my friend Anne posing in front of the Gypsy Junker. They had some restored campers on display and she spent a lot of time looking at those.
And here is some hay art.
While Anne was looking at vintage trailers, I made a beeline for my favorite booth from the previous year. Cynthia Lawrance, owner of A Love of the Past Vintage and Antique Jewelry, had thousands of pieces of vintage and antique jewelry for sale. She has been collecting for more than forty years and she always has beautiful pieces for sale. Anne and I both found lots of pretty pieces in her booth.
The beautiful antique dressing mirror in this picture was only twenty dollars. I wanted to buy it but I just couldn’t think of anywhere I could use it in my house.
There was a real mix of vintage and antique.
This painted car door caught my eye. Remember the Dukes of Hazard? That door looks like it came off of the General Lee.
Some farmhouse and craft items.
A nice collection of suitcases.
A rusty stove, toolboxes, and storage cabinet. It was a beautiful day. Notice how blue the sky was that day.
Lots of plants for sale. They even had a petting zoo with the cutest little pygmy goats and pigs.
There were several vendors selling food and there were plenty of tables set up. It was a very laid back environment.
My friend Amber had a booth. These are her cute little spaghetti cats.
An old church pew covered with pretty quilts.
I would definitely recommend this sale. We had a lot of fun and found some great treasures. I am now on the lookout for more of these kinds of sales. Leave a comment below if you have a favorite pasture sale or know of any other great sales coming up soon.
