Some of the greatest finds are found in the weirdest of places. Wonderful pieces of jewelry come from the world’s dingiest street markets, and that painting you never knew you needed is generally in that random antique store you’ve only stepped in once in your life. The main reason to even go to this sort of thing is to discover just what you’ve been missing your entire life. Thankfully, the people who bring you the Kinetic Sculpture Race every May, and a multitude of other wonderful programs throughout the year at the American Visionary Arts Museum, are throwing a Barn Sale this Saturday. From 9:00a – 4:00p, bring your own reusable bags and fill them to the brim with deals on the wonderful, absurd, and quixotic. As they say on their site, ” Help us clear out our hoard & get your hands on some amazing artwork, books, cards & publications, copiers, computers & office supplies, vintage & not so vintage Apple equipment, retro AVAM & Kinetic memorabilia, plenty of art fixins, & loads more… it’s a picker’s paradise! Free & Open to the public, cash & credit accepted, all proceeds benefit AVAM.”
Be sure to get there bright and early for the best selection of whatever it is may be available. Who knows, you may find that one something special to tie your living room together, or that ideal gift for your Great Aunt. It’s at least worth checking out.
