Spring barn sale

The Vintage Pickin’ Spring Barn Sale will be Friday and Saturday in Fyffe at 202 Farmer Road. 

This is the third year for the Vintage Pickin’ Spring Barn Sale, which will be Friday and Saturday.

This is not just for those who want to shop. Coordinator April Wilks said there will be around 10 food vendors and live music both days.

“This is for anyone who loves kettle corn, pies and live music,” Wilks said.

If you order tickets online, you can pay with a debit or credit card up until 2 p.m. on Friday; however, tickets at the gate must be paid for with cash. Wilks said this helps the line move faster.

According to Wilks, about most of the vendors at the barn sale will accept credit or debit cards.

“There will be approximately 63 to 65 vendors, with 55 antique and décor vendors and roughly 10 food vendors,” Wilks said.

She said there will be three different musicians on Friday and three on Saturday to allow entertainment for those who want to come enjoy the atmosphere.

“There will be a variety of vendors,” Wilks said.

She said some are local and some are coming from as far as Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio.

Friday, they offer an early shopper entry at 12 p.m. the tickets for early entry are $18. Wilks said you can purchase these online through the Facebook page: “Vintage Pickin’ Spring Barn Sale in Fyffe, AL,” or you can purchase them at the gate.

Wilks said they do not expect to sell out of early shopper entries at this time.

General admission is $8 and it will be from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturday.

Wilks said one question she always gets is if there will be anything left on Saturday; she said all the vendors will restock Friday night and Saturday morning so there will be plenty of items both days.

Last year Wilks said there was an issue with parking and there has been extra parking reserved for overflow with shuttle buses to and from the barn sale. She said there will be signs for this parking.

The newest addition to the barn sale is a workshop on Saturday.

Wilks said the ladies from University Pickers in Huntsville will be holding a workshop on site on salt wash and how to use it. She said salt wash is a paint additive that has become popular in refinishing furniture.

According to Wilks the attendees from the past have not been as many locals as expected, and she would like to see more locals come enjoy the location, entertainment and vendors.

She said there will be something for everyone with all price ranges and styles.

The barn sale will be held at 202 Farmer Rd. in Fyffe. For more information, individuals can view the website, www.vintagepickin.com or the Facebook event page. To purchase tickets in advance, visit vpspring18.eventbrite.com.
