The Prim Barn

Located just off Hwy 63 near Lake City, MN and owned by the Darcy's,
 this century old barn is stocked full of wonderful treasures including 
antiques, collectibles, home decor, rustics and garden art.

My love of barns drew me in when I saw an advertisement 
for this "Occasional Market" as they call it. 

 I spoke with one of the Darcy son's who said the barn hasn't had animals in it for several years but
the scent of livestock still lingers as you open the door and walk into the barn.

There were so many things to look at,
 I went around three times to make sure I didnt miss a thing
Glad I came Friday morning, it was cool and rainy, no crowds to wade through.
I heard the opening on Thursday was wall to wall people.

Not only were there treasures on the inside but there was plenty to admire on the grounds as well.

Does anyone else remember having one of these when they were growing up???
I remember putting my thumb through the wringer.... but only once
Mom was right...I hurts!

One more special "out building" to share with you next time...It's pretty sweet!!!

  3. Oh, would I love to meander through this barn. My kind of shopping. Did you buy anything?

    And, yes, I remember the Maytag wringer washer my mom had on the porch. No fingers in the roller for me, though.

  4. I used a wringer like that for many years when we were first married. Now, we use it when we wash cars/motorcycles. The wringer is perfect for wringing out the chamois!!!!!!!! Will have to check out the site!!!!
