There's no place like HOME! {HUGE news!!}

Boy oh boy... the last 48 hours have been crazy for us.

We had our final meeting with our venue to wrap up any loose ends. And things didn't go well. They decided they want to charge $5 per car to park in their lot. We refused. We negotiated the original contract to include parking, we paid our deposit, and had everything under control. We thought. Yet, they insisted that they were now going to charge $5/car. We refuse to let our shoppers get double charged: once for parking and once to shop.
{we're thrilled to be giving part of the entry fees to ICT S.O.S. again this year!}

After many phone calls and heated discussions with big businessmen, we pulled out.
Kansas Barn Sale will no longer be held in Park City.
Hesston, KS.
It'll have the big barn and atmosphere that many of you were concerned about losing.

We have arranged 4 times the number of restrooms we had last year.
We have 3 times the amount of parking we had last year.
We have more signs down the dirt road to direct people to the parking area. (no need to park on the roads when there's a huge lot next to the show!)
If you can find Hesston, KS you will find Kansas Barn Sale. No worries! You won't miss it!

If you need to book a new hotel room, we suggest AmericInn in Hesston, KS. Mention Kansas Barn Sale for a possible discount.

I, personally, am not a fan of indecisiveness and things changing constantly. I'm old, stubborn, and set in my ways. But we did feel like this was the only way to successfully have Kansas Barn Sale this year.

Peace, junk, and lemonade (maybe spiked with vodka)...


  1. Thank you Barn Sale committee. You are all awesome! Counting the days until the event.

  2. I am so excited to think that we will be back at the Barn!

  3. Very happy it will be in Hesston at the barn!

  4. Good for you! Stick to your guns!! Nice to see the 'lil folk standing for what we believe in! It's things like this that allow us to have "hope" for the future! Tired of the corporate world taking over our values.

  5. No matter what, No matter WHERE,
    The GIFTED Gals will still be there!
    ***YAY*** for the Kansas Barn Sale!

  6. Bless you barn sale gals! Your hard work is appreciated!

  7. So glad its back at the barn-much more exciting! I am glad i am a procrastinator and never cancelled the hotel rooms-AmericInn here we come!

  8. Good for you. We all appreciate your hard work!

  9. I am curious if you will be having another barn sale in 2016? Are you taking new vendors and what is the process for that? Thanks.


Thank you for visiting the Barn Sale!
