HESSTON —The annual Kansas Barn Sale will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 5 near Hesston.

Beki Hastings, jewelry designer and owner of The Rusted Chain, is again hosting The Kansas Barn Sale near Hesston.

As a way to feature and support other artists, she started the Kansas Barn Sale in 2010. It is an outdoor market in front of a big red barn, with all items being vintage or handmade. Each vendor is handpicked.

"Supporting the local community and Made in America, while creating their own American Dream, is what The Kansas Barn Sale is all about," Hastings said. "In addition to the fun environment, wonderful live music, and delicious homemade food that have become an annual tradition at the barn sale, this year is also about giving back."

This year Hastings is encouraging sale goers to bring a dry good. All food will be donated to Circles of McPherson County, an organization committed to ending poverty.

Vendors and shoppers come from all over the Midwest to sell and buy antiques, vintage, artisan handmade and re-purposed goods. More than 90 vendors and thousands of shoppers are anticipated this year — coming from Nebraska, Missouri, Oklahoma, Alabama, and Kentucky.
