Later this week, the quiet little town of Jones, OK will be bustling with visitors, as they welcome over 10,000 guests to the Old Chicken Farm. The bi-annual sale at the farm more than quadruples the town’s population in a two-day period. If you are a fan of the farmhouse-chic style that Joanna Gaines inspires us to adore, The Old Chicken Farm Vintage Barn Sale is one event you don’t want to miss. From authentic windmills, charming floral dishware, and weathered barn doors, the Old Chicken Farm is filled with fabulous finds.
The sale starts Friday, May 3, from 10 am – 5 pm, and opens again on Saturday, May 4th, from 9 am – 4 pm. The Old Chicken Farm is located at 12699 E. Britton Road in Jones, and admission to the show is $5. Shoppers come from all over the state searching for the perfect rustic treasure or one-of-a-kind creation to take home. With vendors coming from across the U.S.A., the 77-acre farm is filled with items sure to please every style and palette.
Patti Fields, long-time resident of Jones, has been hosting this show since August 2013, opening the Chicken Farm in May and September every year since. The old farm was previously owned by TruFresh Egg Company back in 1911, and Patti purchased the property in 2002, always dreaming of hosting a show like this one. Patti works hard to gather vendors from across the United States, coming from Florida, Kansas, Arkansas, Missouri, Iowa, and Illinois. She graciously let me take a sneak-peak at this year’s show.
For out-of-town visitors driving in for the show, the Jones Police Chief recommends that you enter town going east bound on Hefner Road to Hiwassee if driving from I-35, or take Hiwassee south from the turnpike. This creates a safer traffic pattern for residents and visitors, alleviating any need for left-hand turns across traffic.
While in town this weekend, be sure to visit some of the other local amenities the town of Jones has to offer. Here is a list of businesses available in town, and locations for those participating in the city-wide garage sale. No need to drive to Roundtop, TX for your next one-of-a-kind vintage find. Grab your gals, throw on some old blue jeans and your favorite pair of boots, and join us in town for a glass of iced tea as you search out that perfect shabby-chic item your home needs. Here are some cute things I spied this week.
