It might be a mouthful, but antiquers love the Old Chicken Farm Vintage Barn Sale. Pattie Fields had only 14 vendors at the very first sale she hosted in 2013. Since then the sale has exploded to include over 600 vendors today.
Owner Pattie Fields is an expert at repurposing old things. The farm that hosts the sale sat abandoned for 30 years before she took over and brought life back into the old place.
Fields holds the sale at her 80-acre farm in Jones, Oklahoma (outside Oklahoma City) and it lasts for two days. There are two sales per year, one in the Spring and one in the Fall. If your heart started beating faster ever since you read the word “vintage” at the top of this page then you’re in luck because the next sale is coming up on Sep. 8-9.
Buyers can find antiques, repurposed items, mid-century decor and even old car parts. When shoppers get hungry they can indulge in some treats from various food trucks. There’s even an ice-cream peddler for those hot Oklahoma days.
At the sale, you can find antique furniture, vintage dishes, eclectic china, even unique fashion pieces. Visitors who have gone to the show before recommend bringing along a wagon to carry your treasures back to the car with you. The entrance fee is $5 per person, free for kids under 13.
