WOW! What an amazing event we had in 2016! We raised close to $20,000 for local charities between parking, entrance fee, raffles and chicken dinners sold AND we are excited to see what we can do at our 7th Annual ~ The Purple Painted Lady® Barn Sale FESTIVAL.
SAVE THE DATE!
September 23, 2017 from 9 – 5 pm with OVER 200 artists !
My name is Trish and I own The Purple Painted Lady. We have four retail locations between Rochester and Syracuse. As my business has grown- so has this venue. And my plans are to continue on this path. It is an amazing show and for vendors and guests…..I hope you join me on this journey! My second goal- is to always balance quantity with quality! With that said- you will not find anyone selling solar panels, or gas insert fireplaces at The Purple Painted Lady® Barn Sale FESTIVAL – (no disrespect meant to those things) but you will only find true artisans at the show…..with the majority of items being handmade or upcycled!
WHAT TO EXPECT IN 2017!
- OVER 200 ARTISANS, antique dealers, junk sellers, bakers, food trucks, breweries, wineries and farmers.
- Faster and more efficient access to parking! The Wayne County Sheriff’s, Macedon Town Police and Macedon Fire Department are all involve in re-routing roads to handle the traffic flow for that one day since the volume of people who come is so great.
- Double the Parking Attendants
- Tables & Chairs By Food Trucks
- Sitting areas through out the show (why didn’t I think of this sooner?)
- Double the “Restrooms!” located in the front and back of the show
- On-Line Map to locate your favorite artist
This is a one day event (Sept 23, 2017) held on our 60 acres where we live on Yellow Mills Road in Macedon (Palmyra mailing address though.) We average around 6,000 people in an 8 hour period and bring in national DIY bloggers.
Here is a 2 minute video from our 6th annual ….The Purple Painted Lady® 9/24/16 Festival. We had close to 6,000 people attend. Take note of the TWO parking lots at the beginning of the video that show how full the 15 acres of parking got!!!!
But before I go any further- can you LIKE my Facebook page, pretty please if you have not already? LIKE MY FACEBOOK PAGE HERE
We purchased the 40 acres directly across the street when it became for sale this past fall (2016)- so now there are no constraints that would prevent us from growing it more. : )
THIS SALE IS A BENEFIT:
We charge $5 per car to park- and all of this money goes to the PalMac Rotary and South Macedon Frie Department! I tell people to bring a bus since the $5 parking fee remains the same if you have a VW Bug or a school bus. LOL
Come out and support the Pal Mac Robotics Team at The Purple Painted Lady® Barn Sale this Saturday, 9/23 from 9 til 5 at 845 Yellow Mills Road. A portion of the chicken dinner profits directly helps them.

THIS IS A BENEFIT:
We charge $5 per car to park- and all of this money goes to the PalMac Rotary! and 100% goes to the Pal Mac Rotary and they purchase dictionaries and a thesaurus for our 4th and 5th graders, among a lot of other things they do with the money raised. They man it with a 25 person team- so everyone is flagged into a space and it is quick in and out, no double parking issues. I tell people to bring a bus since the $5 fee remains the same. LOL
