The Strawberry Patch 2018

Fall is without question my favorite season. I utterly live for the barn sales, the changing leaves, the warm pumpkin spices lattes, and all the apple cider a person can handle. The official kick off for the autumn season in my world is always The Strawberry Patch barn sale in Hartsville, TN. The event is hosted by Christy Jo Stone on her family’s farm just outside of the tiny town of Hartsville. Each year Christy Jo brings together dozens of the very best vintage, antique, and hand made vendors from all across the south.

There are a few key elements needing for a successful barn sale, and Christy Jo captures them all. From fabulous vendors, to a mix of styles, to quality entertainment, and the best food trucks, and of course her signature fruit tea, Christy Jo creates a must visit event that is set among the rolling pastures and farmlands of the area.

This year I shot the event for a 2019 issue of Where Women Create so I can’t share too many of the photos here, but I do have a few of my favorites to give a taste of what you’ll be seeing in an issue sometime next year.

Until then, here are a few of my other favorite barn sales and markets to visit each fall:
