We thought that when we left MA we left our beloved Vintage Bazaar behind, but wouldn’t you know it?? –They followed us to our new locale. Still a bit of a hike for us, but Devon, her talent, and her crew are so phenomenal it’s worth the effort. In honor of a show celebrating the vintage, I offer a vintage challenge—Be there or Be Square!
Well, this is a first for us. We never thought we’d be at Brimfield, but The Vintage Bazaar invited us, and how could we say no? Yesterday, dogs walked and trailer loaded, we hit the road. Traffic is never anyone’s friend on Rte 128, so it was a two hour drive. I can’t complain, though. Dave was driving (I don’t do trailers), and I was knitting, so I couldn’t have been more content. The day was hot and humid, Dave was under the weather, and we were short on time, but the people are wonderful, our little corner of Brimfield is beautiful, and back on the road again we go. Dave driving. Me knitting. Life is good.
Find us at Central Park in The Vintage Bazaar Tent, booths 112-114. Tues through Sat, May 12th-16th.
It’s impossible to say how much fun we had if only because we are so tired it is difficult to see straight. But these are exciting times, and we are barreling towards our next adventure! To stay on point, though, this past weekend at The Vintage Bazaar’s Holiday Jubilee was like none other. We were thrilled with the results of our labors in our booth layout, the crowds were fantastic, and the VB crew and our fellow vendors are SUCH a delight to work with. Creativity, generosity, and kindness converge for one heck of a feel good atmosphere.
As you know, we are always on the lookout for great vintage finds at yard sales and flea markets. The thrill of the search never diminishes for us. This year was our first visit to the annual Grand and Glorious Yard Sale and it is sure to become a lasting tradition for us. We left the hall with many a treasure, but most triumphantly we tucked this oversized wooden train engine with two towed cars securely under our arms. I have visions of an extensive display at our shows, this choo choo set up on a rustic antique workbench next to the 1930s hoosier. Stuffed toys, yarns, kits, and vintage laces, baubles, and other vintage oddities in tow, each car overflowing with goodies.
