There is so much to see when you visit the production plant in Aurora and I was able to take some photos of areas that most visitors would never see!
Here are some photos from "behind the scenes" at the Barn Sale this past weekend:
Here is the vegetable garden with Cayuga Lake in the background:
When Victoria and Richard built the production plant and barn they decorated in their wild, whimsical style and it still remains. This is one of the bathroom ceilings in the Barn. Dishes, cups, glassware, etc is attached to the ceiling, the sink was the fish bowl and the countertop wss tiled in a variety of patterns:
The first floor in the back of the Barn has a kitchen, which is all tiled. Even the floor has M-C tiles!
The employee soda/water cart was painted with a local scene of Cayuga Lake:
The second story of the barn stores much of the barn sale items, and trust me, there were so many boxes that the Barn Sale could have gone on for a week!:
Looking up from the 2nd floor through the large circular opening you can see the 3rd floor ceiling:
The 3rd floor used to be a cafe where they served lunches. The booths and serving bar is still there, along with tons of enamelware and more boxes!
A closer look at the ceiling - you name it and it is attached - everything from chairs, bikes, manikins, lamps, dishes, chaises and so on:
It is such a unique ceiling...
and it makes you wonder WHO meticulously attached all these treasures:
This is the side of the main store and the lovely pond:
And the lily pads were in bloom!
I was like a kid in a candy store, peeking around behind the scenes and remembering the ol' days when the Barn was full of life and was not a storage area!
Stop by tomorrow to see more!
