Barn House Update - The News!


It has been an incredible week for us!  The Sun finally came out signaling that Summer might actual really be here!!  As a result, we finally were motivated to get our online store back up and running.  Barn House Marketplace is now open for business (again).  We are very happy to have two very talented invited guests and friends selling with us - Maison Douce and Retreat Design.  There are lots a great treasures...check us out at www.barnhousemarket.com.






We now have new T-Shirts for sale at BHM!



But, the BIG NEWS really is that The Boys of Barn House are in the July issue of Sunset Magazine!!!!


This has really been an unbelievable year for us!  We have been featured in Somerset Life Magazine, Flea Market Style Magazine (2 articles shot at our home), The Seattle Times, The Columbian Newspaper and now one of the most iconic magazines - Sunset!!  Sunset Magazine has been around for over 100 hundred years (yes, since 1898) and is one of the most widely distributed magazines in the country.   It is really unbelievable that we are actually in it.  We are so incredibly honored.  Life is really good!

I remember clearly when Heather Bullard was here for one of the photo shoots for Flea Market Style and being shocked that she actually wanted to take a picture of us for the magazine.  We get TONS of magazines and the reality is that 999 times out of 1,000 there is certainly not folks that look, feel (and maybe smell) like us.  We told Heather that there was no way FMS would put a picture of us in the magazine.  She winked and said, "Oh yes they will!"  And, oh yes, they did!  And so did Sunset!   Me and Joe have been joking about how terrible we look in the Sunset photo.  I don't know what we were thinking about staying up so late the night before, but we look a little rough.  The first thing I thought was "Jermonne, you need to stop eating and stop eating NOW!"  I told Joe if he had red hair, he would look like Johnny Depp in the Alice in Wonderland movie poster.  It's worth $4.95 just for the chuckle about how we look!  LOL 

OK...enough joking around.  If you live on the East Coast and don't have access to Sunset, we have about 25 copies for sale at Barn House Marketplace.

Thank you all for so generously supporting The Boys of BH and our dream!  We are truly blessed to be surrounded by so much love and inspiration. 

Much Love,

J & J
The Boys of Barn House

Picked up my copy of Sunset at the airport on my way out of town. Loved seeing you guys in there and showing the article to my family and bragging, "These guys are my good friends!" I feel so lucky to know two such amazing
"celebrities." Can't wait to see you at the flea next month or hopefully sooner!

XO,

Lisa

I will look for the article. You are highly entertaining. love reading your posts. Will hop over now and check out the marketplace.

Retreat said...

We agree with Annette... in the Sunset photo, you both look happy to be living the life you are living. {And sitting the middle of your FAB window at Camas Antiques, how could you not look awesome, anyway?!} Your spirits shine through any weariness, and you so deserve the spotlight that is shining on you.

Thank you so much for including us in your BarnHouse Family, and for the web feature... we have more stuff to drop off on our way to the Cali show!!!

知道他有了外遇
面對他的低聲下氣妳冷嘲熱諷、無理取鬧
妳瘋狂似的大吵大鬧
甚至到他的公司去亂、向他的親友抱怨、向鄰居們哭訴…
妳把他的外遇鬧的人盡皆知
最後,妳把他的愧疚消耗殆盡…
最後,妳把他想要回頭的念頭打消…
最後,妳自己把他推向外遇的第三者身邊…
