Urban Barn Grand Opening

Over the weekend, the Urban Barn aka La Maison Rustique had their grand opening at their new location in Escondido, California.

Of course, it was one of hottest weekends and made it hard to get out but if you got out there it was worth it to see all the eye candy and all the work the "ladies" of the barn did to pull it all together.

Here's some pics for your enjoyment, as always, I was amazed at all the goodies and how they were fashioned.

They had wine bottles with URBAN BARN labels setup in their cute little snack bar area.

In the back of the warehouse, they were going to have their "blogger party" in the afternoon. It was beautifully decorated with two loooong tables with antique centerpieces. Check out all the paper globes in the ceiling.

Brilliant idea.....little wooden planks with a dollie and a small mason jar for burger sliders and beer tasting. Yee haw!!!

There was a class going on while the shoppers shopped. Julie Nutting was leading a class on her just published in Somerset Paper Couture. Oh so lovely.

There was a vendor faire going on in the side lot with over 20 vendors with plenty of lovelies.

Lisa Loira of Vintagebling4u was their with her cute altered dollies. She is holding a class on how to make these bling babies on August 22 in San Diego. If you are interested, check out her blog.

Retreat Style was at the party with their special look. Man they had some great pieces and wonderful visions of shabby chic.

Of course, Rita of Mammaralle was their with her beautiful wares.

ah Bella!
Tricia Vintage Bliss was their from Arizona with her oh so great fun "stuff". I love shopping with Tricia because she always has something new!

Becky Wimbs had some cute items. I bought a reproduction Mother and child santos...I call can kinda see it next to the lamp. I'll post a pic one of these days.
To top off the party, Urban Barn has a band play in the back of Mary's sweet pickup truck. So fun!

The Urban Barn Grand Opening was sweet.............hope you enjoyed the tour.

Thank you so much for posting on this fantastic new store! We would have never heard of it had it not been for you. I'm a big fan of this type of place, but have had a hard time finding one that's close. We'll be sure to mention your blog when we go. Thanks, again.
