Venue[edit]

The very first Salebarn location is in George, Iowa. We are looking to add under-utilized or vacant commercial real estate which may serve as a locations for future Salebarn facilities. These Salebarn locations will provide the facilities and resources for product R&D workbenches and test labs, creative mending and upcycling meeting areas, refurbishing and repair workshops and consignment auction events.

What is unique about Salebarn as a hackerspace is that Salebarn offers consignment auction events and online auction. We believe that auction offers special potential to introduce the public to the notion of what hackerspaces are all about and to give members of the hackerspace [as well as non-members of the communities in which Salebarn is located] a chance to appraise and sell art, antiques, tools, equipment, vehicles, supplies, collectibles and all sorts of upcycled and refurbished items.
