Thank you for visiting my shop!

My name is Stella, and I'm a farmgirl-at-heart who is fortunate to be realizing her dream of living in an old farmhouse with the man she loves and a personable, affectionate feline. Our house and old bank barn are painted the softest shade of pale, creamy yellow, and our beloved barn was the inspiration for this shop’s name.

For most of my life I've been a collector, and I believe one is destined to be a collector forever. As a child I’d find and painstakingly arrange interesting rocks, seashells, beach glass, bits of driftwood, colorful bird feathers, leaves and other nature finds. The collections expanded over the years to include vintage items I put to use every day – old cookbooks; cookware, bakeware and utensils; vintage quilts; jewelry; retro aprons…

Thank you for visiting my shop!

My name is Stella, and I'm a farmgirl-at-heart who is fortunate to be realizing her dream of living in an old farmhouse with the man she loves and a personable, affectionate feline.

For most of my life I've been a collector, and I believe one is destined to be a collector forever. As a child I’d find and painstakingly arrange interesting rocks, seashells, beach glass, bits of driftwood, colorful bird feathers, leaves and other nature finds. The collections expanded over the years to include vintage items I put to use every day – old cookbooks; cookware, bakeware and utensils; vintage quilts; jewelry; retro aprons; and a wide assortment of sewing box items. I have a difficult time passing up any interesting bit or bob, hoping that someday either I or someone else could find a way to re-cycle, re-purpose, re-use or upcycle it.

I’ve dabbled in creative endeavors over the years - basket-weaving, floral arranging, jewelry-making, sewing, and paper crafts - and will list handmade items from time to time.

I’m so happy to share these amazing finds with you, to bring bits of inspiration, beauty, and the past into your creative life. As I de-stash the craft studio, attic and barn, I’ll be listing vintage textiles, lovely old buttons, vintage jewelry and jewelry components, kitchenware, books, old greeting cards and more. Happy hunting!
