The Middlesex Land Trust held a tag sale at the Palmer Barn as part of Portland’s Annual Town Wide Tag Sale Event May 12th, and it was a terrific success. The funds raised will help the continue the maintenance and repair of the historic barn at MLT’s Palmer Preserve located on  Middle Haddam Road.

Among the hundreds of items donated and sold were several pairs of snowshoes,  lots of kids toys, tools old and new, furnature and knickknacks, antiques, useful materials,  and lots and lots of cool stuff! Most tagsaler’s managed to bargain for some great deals, and not just the early birds as donations came in for the sale throughout the day!

It seems a  good time was had by all.

We were also treated to a visit by Mr. Mclean who had spent a portion of his youth milking cows in that very barn! He was able to tell us all about the original layout of the barn, and of buildings and fields that no longer exist on the property. Walking around the barn with Mr. Mclean, we were able to get some answers to some questions that had long puzzled us. It was a wonderful history lesson that might have been lost had he not happened by the sale!

The day was a great success! Our sincere thanks go out to the many donors and volunteers who contributed to the wonderful success of the effort.
