Finding French Farmhouse Style...at a Farm Supply Store!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT French Farmhouse Style...from Tractor SupplyI have found a new place to shop for French farmhouse style decor…and you are not going to believe where it is…Tractor Supply Company! Yep…you read that right! I have been thinking about heading over for several months now…thinking that at the very least I would find a nice variety of galvanized items at a reasonable price. But I was not prepared for all that I did see!

Vintage Style Milk Bottle CarrierDid you know that there is a little decor section? Yep…there is! And the first thing I spotted was this wonderful vintage-style milk bottle carrier…for under $20! Woo hoo! That’s at least $5.00 less than the cheapest I have seen and, for me…no shipping to pay! There was also a great wooden box with a handle that tempted me, but this one won!

Galvanized Bucket And I just fell in love with this great galvanized bucket…in an unusual low profile shape. Love it!  And the price…wait for it!…under $6.00! Whaaat? There are also several other sizes as well…from smaller to larger.

Mercury Glass Solar Mason Jar I was excited to find this mercury glass solar Mason jar light for my patio! I can’t wait to see how it looks tonight!

Hummingbird FeederI saw my first hummingbird today at my French lavender and I knew it was time to put the feeder out…but alas, mine was less than beautiful. So I was pleased to see this pretty one with an unusual vintage iron finish. I hope the hummingbirds like it as much as I do!

Jute Twine And finally…some of you may not be too impressed by this, but I snatched it right up…520 feet of jute twine for only $3.19! Woo hoo! I go through a bunch of that stuff! I only wish I had brought my camera! There was so much more…bushel baskets, great egg cartons, canning jars, beautiful plants, really cute little toy farm animals, children’s watering cans, cat toys…I could go on and on!

Ozzie Wait…Ozzie says…Cat toys? Sooowhy didn’t you bring some home for us? Silly kitty! She knows we grow our own catnip and make our own toys! And just in case you are thinking my window is dirty…

Spider WebWell…maybe it is! But you can also see the remnants of this…a fabulous web that the spider spins again each night. Here’s how it looks through the window first thing in the morning…covered with dew. Pretty, isn’t it?

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT French Farmhouse Style...from Tractor Supply And here is a final look at my frenchy farmhouse finds! Aren’t they amazing? I'll be showing you more of how I used them later. And can you believe where they came from? I will definitely be going back…and they are not even paying me to say that!

  1. Okay if I were looking for a "tractor" store where would I find one over here in Kennesaw??.....it's an actual tractor store or is it run by the same people that operate those "Goodwill" stores where you find all that outstanding stuff.... :)

  7. We have Tractor Supply and Orscheln, plus a Co-op, here in town...farm stores galore in farming country. I am going exploring. I knew Bass Pro was a veritable treasure trove, but never thought of the farm stores and we are in one or the other of these places quite a bit.

  9. I LOVE TSC!! Was just there this past week to buy Blue Buffalo (best dogfood for your dog!!). Cheaper here than anywhere else.
    Bought a huge galvanized watering can while I was there. LOVE it!
    Didn't know they had a decor asile--will investigate this week. I
    'm kind of hooked on galvanized----ANYTHING!!!
    Got the idea to put my Christmas tree in a huge galvanized low profile bin/ bucket. The only place I could find one was TSC!!
    Yeahh!!! Great minds think alike.

  22. Well holy moly -- here I am not far from NYC, and there's a Tractor Supply just 12 miles from me. Who knew? Now I do, because of YOU.
    What great stuff, and great prices.
    Time for a field trip.
    LOVE galvanized stuff. Reminds me of my childhood, back in dinosaur days.

  29. This is so funny, we stopped in at a TSC today while coming back from an out of town trip. I noticed the wooden crates, but didn't see any of those gorgeous milk carriers. How cool, I may need to find one locally now. Oh, I did buy a small roll of chicken wire for some projects- I've been wanting to get some, but not in the huge rolls most places sell.

  36. I once did a blog post about shopping The Tractor Store vs. Macy's. :) I love the Tractor Store. I go there often and just peruse the aisle looking for the unusual. Love their magazines and my favorite zinc bird feeder came from there. Have a sweet week.

  39. Fantastic finds! Just like everyone else, I'll be heading to the nearest Tractor Supply Store ASAP. I think the Tractor Supply Stores across America are going to see an upswing in their sales this week. :) LOL I hope I can find some of those solar powered mercury glass canning jars.

  40. I've also found some great deals and things at Tractor Supply!! We get pet bedding there cheap - so I have bought most of my galvanized buckets there. I have also bought straw in different size bails for fall. You found some cute things! I love that mason jar mercury glass!

  41. We have a tractor store and I will check it out. I want a galvanized scoop for charcoal. My husband uses lump charcoal and keeps it in a galvanized trash can. I spray painted it black though to be less obvious along side our black patio furniture.

    You find the best deals. Thank you for sharing.

  43. Debbie - Love your finds. I always stake out our local Tractor Supply - My husband hasn't caught on yet to the fact that that I can find home decor there :) Just had to let you know I found that same solar lantern at Home Depot. I saw them in the weekly ad a few weeks ago and had to take peek at them in the store. I am sure by now you have seen it in the dark - isn't it gorgeous? I definitely want to go back for more! Thanks so much for linking - It's greatly appreciated. Stephanie Lynn

  50. Thanks for sharing your finds. I know farm supply stores are great places to shop. There are none in my area, so I miss out on this. Blessings

  51. I think the tractor store is a GREAT idea! One can find some simple pieces sometimes in a plant/garden store for sure too. I loved the idea of putting the candles in the bottle carrier. I WILL steal that idea - thanks!
