There are a couple of very occasional sales this weekend beyond the Twin Cities metro which may interest you. Farthest away and held only twice a year is the Sale on the Farm by the Pfarkel Sisters and their Junk Redefined vintage business. You may know them from their appearances at Junk Bonanza or their frequent collaborations with Sue Whitney of Junk Market Style. The farm is in southeastern Minnesota not far out of Fountain – that’s south of Rochester on Hwy. 52. The address is 29452 Cty. Rd. 11. Hours are Friday 9 to 6 and Saturday 9 to 4.
Another sale – a quarterly sale – is taking place on the north side of Hutchinson at Prairie Haven Design. Jane is very creative with fabrics and her husband works his magic with wood and metal. Add to that several vendors who make pillows and quilts, paint furniture, fashion floral decor, and gather vintage pieces for a fun market. Prairie Haven is located at 20284 Raven Avenue. Watch for the signs from Hwy. 7. Hours are Thursday through Saturday from 10 to 6. Phone is 320-583-2956.
In another direction is the monthly sale at the Back 40 Market in Harris which is west of 35W heading north toward Duluth (but not that far!) This month the Back 40 Market is only open Friday and Saturday. For hours, call 612-490-5810. And if you want to keep driving, you can check out West Tischer Cottage northwest of Duluth this Thursday through Saturday.
Please check Facebook for directions and to confirm times before you hit the highway. Happy saling!
