Once again this spring The Broken Oak’s barn door will slide open and welcome guests for their second annual spring barn sale. You may be wondering what exactly is a barn sale and the best way to describe it is, a vintage and handmade market out of a barn.
Our owner and founder, Alyssa Schweiss was raised on a farm in Missouri with her three brothers. Her parents instilled hospitality in her heart as a young girl. Their home and farm was a “revolving door” as she puts it. She started to realize as she grew older that their farm was special and she admired how her parents always openly shared their gift of the country life with others.
It shouldn’t have been a surprise when Alyssa wanted to start hosting a market out of she and her husband, Cameron’s barn in 2016. What started as her and a few friends setting up a little sale in a few stalls of their barn has grown into an anticipated event with more than thirty vendors and thousands of shoppers each spring and fall.
Though the market has grown tremendously and at a progressive speed Alyssa’s heart remains the same. To show hospitality and to give people a simple, peaceful day of shopping and fun on their little farm in central Missouri.
Vendors gather from all over the state bringing unique handmade goods and vintage finds. Live music, green grass and delicious food vendors help to set the tone along with a heart of hospitality that continues to flourish and grow right along with this unique market in Rolla, MO.
