The View From Halcyon Farm: It’s Barn Sale Time


Museums have a great word that they use when they are getting rid of unwanted pieces from their collections: deaccessioning. The spellcheck always flags it, but it is a real word! It means to sell an item from a collection. And that’s just what’s happening at Halcyon Farm over the weekend of June 27th and 28th.


Stiles is having a Barn Sale, and it’s going to be one for the ages, which actually scares us a little bit. Between years of collecting personally and for the decorating business, things have reached a tipping point, and only a barn could hold everything that is being sold!
