- The Barn Vintage Treasures, located at 816 15th Street North, is undergoing a big change:
In late January, the Barn will temporarily close and will be renovated and reinvented! Walls will be torn down, painted and rearranged. Best of all, everything will be upgraded to better quality, more history, more fabulousness! All merchandise will be carefully selected to provide you with quality, authentic old things, all beautifully displayed. Each item for sale will be dated so you can be confident that you are buying something genuinely old. The Barn will re-open on March 1, 2019 with a fresh new look. As part of the new approach, The Barn will be open two days every month, the first Friday and Saturday, with new (old) treasures each month. During each opening, in addition to my finds, I’ll be hosting a different vendor each month to bring you more unique items.
They are posting photos of the transformation on their website. I enjoy browsing antiques and collectibles stores, and The Barn is one of the “funner” ones, due to its large selection and very unique infrastructure. I’m disappointed that they are only going to be open two days per month, but I wish them the best.
- The University of Providence-Great Falls (formerly University of Great Falls) is on the verge of eliminating some programs: “The recommendations of program closures will be submitted to the Board of Trustees on Feb. 14 where a final decision will be made. At present, 19 programs, including undergraduate and graduate, are being submitted to the board. Nearly 30 undergraduate and graduate programs, as well as dozens of concentrations will remain in the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the School of Health Professions.”
