Vintage Lover’s Paradise in an Old Barn!


Sweet Clover Barn Frederick MD - a vintage lover's paradise!

I love a good road trip …

especially when I get to head out on the open road with Denise in her Crafty Camper …

and even more especially when the destination is an old barn overflowing with vintage goodness.

Destination:  Sweet Clover in Frederick, MD run by my friend Cassie and Sarah and filled with tons of amazing dealers and cool finds.


I may have drooled on myself more than once and you will too when you check out the amazing stash of vintage goods and fabulous displays.

  3. Looks like a great day! As an eBay seller, I am always drawn to the storage pieces, LOL!

  4. I love all their stuff. So much fun!
    At least you didn’t get lost like I did on my way there. I took a 2 hour detour. I’m such and idiot and so is my iPhone

  5. Oh wow, that’s an awesome place! No wonder you were drooling! Girl after my own heart! :)

  6. That is a fantastic find! I could wander around all day in there!!

  9. Be still my heart! I would have thought I’d died and gone to heaven!

  10. Sweet Clover is one of my favorite barn sales each month. Wish I had known you were there. I stopped by early afternoon on Saturday. Your friend’s little camper…ADORABLE!!

  11. Thank you Kelly for making the trip! It was great to spend some time with you! It was a fun “blogger event” 😉

  12. Great pictures! I wanna go to this!!!! Thanks for sharing.

  13. Wow, that would have been an amazingly great place to be. So many goodies…sigh. Thanks for sharing!

  14. WOW! What a great place! Thank you for sharing!

  15. I like the idea of using the old silverware case for paint brushes. I also liked the map on the side table top.

  16. Margaret says:

    I could stay in that place for days!

  17. Wow, so many fun finds!!

  18. Oh my, I would LOVE to visit that place, or have one of my own. Lucky you!

  19. You captured the spirit of Sweet Clover! I’ve only been selling there in my booth for nearly 3 months, but I love it! It’s THE happening spot here in Maryland :). One can get lost in there. Plan for at least a good couple hours. And it was good seeing you again!

  20. A true wonderland and just my style!!! Jealous

  21. Great post Kelly. Love Sweet Clover.

  22. oh heavens…just find me a little place to curl up and I’d live there! guess there’s another place to add to my bucket list, thanks for sharing all the yummy photos!

  23. I have never seen so many bread boards in one place! Wow!

  24. What a great store! That’s the kind of place you could visit for the inspiration alone (and then of course go broke shopping!). The giant mirror next to the painted armoire with frosted glass really caught my eye.

  25. Oppss I think I drooled on myself as well….Oh well, it is part of loving vintage…..LOL Thanks for sharing this great place. Have a blessed day. :-)

  26. I’m so glad that spring has finally arrived in Michigan so DH and I can hit the road for a treasure hunt! These photos have got me itching to get out there.

  27. My gosh- I can’t BELIEVE all the great stuff in that barn…and I like that it is pretty neat and you don’t have to “dig through” like you do in some barn sales. I love all those shutters and that blue bike looks just like the one I had when I was growing up….wish I had it back now. xo Diana

  28. I love the bright linens! (makes me realize, though, that I already have more than I use, and I need to find homes for some)

    Seeing all that, horses, land, goodies, makes me miss KY so much. Wish we could have stayed there, we had 1 1/2 acres, 1500 sq.foot 3bdrm, 1 1/2 bath, sunroom, oh I could go on. Only problem, the humidity and allergies there were so bad for me we had to leave. Miss our place so much, especially the price, $55,000. And our oldest son completely remodeled it. Total, total bummer.
    Oh the goodies in that barn, I too would have had to take out a loan or not pay the mortgage, who needs to eat, buy goodies. lol
    Well back to painting a shelf. Loved your post.

  30. I could spend all day in there. Love that first shot with the vintage travel trailer.

  31. It is a fabulous place…i was there last year…glad you had a great time!!!

  32. I love road trips to eclectic, historical places. I have found & purchased some sweet vintage pieces that add a bit of charm here and there around my home. Love it!

  33. Oh my! Such yummy finds. A pure delight to see and a torture that I couldn’t pick up and buy anything!

  34. I could spend the whole day here! Wonder what you ended up snagging?!

  35. Those towels in that booth at the top of the stairs? I wanted those.

  36. I LOVE barns–especially when they’re filled with wonderful treasures!!! Thanks so much for sharing.

  37. Okay I live in Maryland and I’m currently trying to figure out why in the world I haven’t been here! I love everything I am seeing! I would seriously give up my first born for those industrial storage cabinets and that chandelier. I’m going to have to go check it out pronto!

  38. Looks like so much fun and a dangerous place to shop. I could do some damage to my credit card in a place like that!


  1. […] Only 364 more days til the next sale …and I’m counting the days. Like this? You’ll LOVE my vintage shopping trip in this old barn. […]
