The Show Goes On…… RAIN OR SHINE!
This event besides being fantastic- is a benefit! The Palmyra-Macedon Rotary, the grass roots organization that saves animals from “kill shelters” called “Joyful Rescue” and the Boy Scouts, Venturing Crew 313 will be just some of the organizations that receive 100% of the money raised.
The Barn Sale & Junk Jubilee will be held on Saturday, September 20th from 10 to 5pm at our home in Macedon on 20 acres with 10 acres dedicated to off road parking. (NO Parking permitted on the street due to safety.)
We have doubled the parking lot and guarantee solid ground to drive on! Look for the great volunteers from the Palmyra Macedon Rotary who will be directing traffic. (see map below with directions- we are EASY to find!!!) Again- this is a benefit and the parking is $5. 100% OF THAT MONEY goes right back into helping the community. The Rotary has over 20 volunteers who work ALL day to earn this money and then they turn around and re-invest that in t.
WHY IS THERE $1 ENTRANCE FEE:
There is a $1 entrance fee to the Barn Sale & Junk Jubilee, and again 100% OF THAT MONEY will go the charitable organization called Joyful Rescues.
All 80 vendors will be donating a creation- and raffles will be held every hour on the hour this year! We will be sharing a FREE printable Raffle Ticket here on Facebook and our website as we get closer to the event. The Purple Painted Lady will be giving away a quart of Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan and a tin of wax and Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint (alternating) every hour too!~ Look for the “Raffle Booth” which will be located near the entrance to the sale this year! We have the Boy Scouts, Venturing Crew 313 managing the raffle- and all sales from raffle tickets will go directly to their troop.
We will have a chicken dinner barbeque, wineries, a micro-brewery, farmer’s market and an incredible selection of artists joining us to make this day amazing for you!

2. The Bed & Breakfast at Oliver Phelps located in Canandaigua, NY. The house was built in 1813 and expanded in the 1830s. An example of Greek revival architecture from the Federal period, it retains lovely features for today’s guests: eleven foot ceilings, wide plank floors, blown glass window panes, and old-growth trees on the grounds (black walnut, horse chestnut and shag-bark hickory).
Oliver Phelps, together with his partner Nathan Gorham, were the original ‘land-developers’ in America. They purchased six million acres in the Finger Lakes area with plans to sell to settlers expanding westward in the newly independent United States. Unfortunately unrest on the frontier slowed migration and led to the venture’s bankruptcy. Oliver’s grandson and namesake acquired this house in 1816. It remained the Phelps family home until 1925 when it was sold to the Christian Science Church. It served as their place of worship for the next 50 years. Returning to private ownership in 1975, it became the first bed and breakfast in Canandaigua in the early 1980′s. It has been successful as one ever since.
Thanks so much!
