i have known about bailey’s palomar resort for a while but never had the pleasure of visiting until i started having my retreats up on palomar mountain. baileys is a historic, family-run resort on 60 acres of beautiful mountain land and it’s just a short walk away from the upper meadow lodge where the retreats are held.

|so much cool OLD stuff!!|
at the november retreat i met the lovely terri bailey, who married into the bailey family and now pretty much runs the whole shebang, along with her husband, brad, and some other family members.

so that’s how i found out about the annual bailey’s barn sale. my new little mixed media art pieces have been looking for a way to go public and this sounded like just the thing! a big old dance hall barn, oozing with history and stories and now filled with antiques, memorabilia, art and fragrant homemade soap!
|the sale.... my stuff is in the foreground|
|lots of antiques|
it was a fabulous day – sunshine, nice people, tons of interesting old things (and rusty things… my favorite!!) a little down-home music, and the coolest part for me…. SALES! it wasn’t a huge crowd, but even so, i sold 3 of my new pieces!!
|One of my sales.... it's the Bailey House & was snatched up by Brad Bailey!|
|this is currently working its way into a new mixed media piece.....|
the fun’s not over yet…. i’ll be back for another round at the sale this coming weekend!
if you're in the area.... come on by!!
