For those of you that have never experienced this sale, I would suggest that you put it on your calendar, leave the kids at home and take a lovely drive to Aurora.
If you're a fan of upscale, whimsical decor items and tableware, mark your calendar. MacKenzie-Childs will be hosting its barn sale at its company headquarters at 3260 State Route 90 in Aurora from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. July, 15, 16 and 17. This once-a-year sale features ceramics, signature enamelware, glassware, furniture, lighting and rugs at up to 80 percent off.
You never know what you'll find at the barn sale.
The lines are long, so be patient as you're hunting for your treasures. We usually try to make a day trip out of the sale with a lunch or dinner at the Aurora Inn overlooking Cayuga Lake.
