In 2009, after twisting a few arms, I began hosting a glorified yard sale in my backyard with a small group of girls who have since become my best friends. I'm proud to say that it was the first Barn Sale of its kind in the state of Tennessee! We quickly outgrew my backyard space, so in the spring of 2011 we decided to step things up a notch and move the sale to my family's farm in Hartsville, TN. Starlite Farm is approximately 200 acres and is nestled in the rolling hills of Trousdale County right on the Cumberland River. It is one of the most beautiful farms I have ever seen and my heart yearns to be there.

The Strawberry Patch Barn Sale has become the main event on this farm and in my life- it is an indie arts and design type outdoor marketplace. I put my heart and soul into this show and look forward to each one! I strive to find artisans who have a creative and unique style and are passionate about what they do. I know you will love The Strawberry Patch Pop-Up Sale and everything it has to offer!
