now with all the students settled into their new routines, whether as an independent at college or returning to elementary and secondary schools, we can reflect on the summer's adventures and renewed alliances.  our children had the fortune to discover the surf and caves of puerto rico; the daring culinary exploits and international charm of san francisco; and the varied art collections from the Met, the MOMA, and the ICP.  also, finding the sounds of the Bad Rabbits, The Ready Set, and We the Kings in Warped Tour 2014 at Jones Beach.  TheBarn was invited to participate in the North Shore Land Alliance Red Truck Estate Sale as a contributor and to assist in the staging of the main tent.


in joining the efforts and talents of so many for the Red Truck Estate Sale, TheBarn reconnected with old friends and affiliates, as well as having the opportunity to work with out peers.  there was such a collaborative energy supportive of the diverse styles being represented.  everyone lent a hand and a new allegiance was formed.  this event was 'a perfect example of community...coming together around a cause' that makes such a difference to our immediate area and in protecting the land and water of long island. proceeds will go toward the purchase and protection of the Deforest Williams property and restoration of the Shore Road wetlands in cold spring harbor.


it always feels good to give back to our community whether we are pulling weeds, planting seedlings, creating educational boards for students, unloading boxes of contributions or staging for a benefit.  next for TheBarn is to collaborate with the Cold Spring Harbor Educational Foundation to enhance the fashion/merchandising courses available at the high school - maybe field trips to key markets, identifying product categories not satisfied locally, recognizing the effects of social media to sales conversion, creating effective websites, ect.  

over the summer, we utilized the knowledge of an intern to freshen-up our own site and are very excited to share it with you.  take a look...
