The Vintage Bazaar of New England

elephantherd

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!

Prim Excursions

I am fascinated by the primitive.  The old and weathered.  The patina of life’s wear and tear.  The functional side of folk art.  Dave and I have designed and made several pull toys together, but this one is an altogether new undertaking.  Three dimensional, fiber art, and salvage combined all in one piece.  I am just thrilled with the results.  While the piece functions spectacularly as a pull toy, due to governmental oversight, I need to tell you it is not a toy.  It is for decorative purposes only.  Nonetheless, our Primitive Hooked Giraffe Pull Toy has won over our hearts.

More designs to come…

Our giraffe is hooked with an assortment of wools and organic cottons. Stuffed with organic cotton, too.
The back is coffee stained linen to give it an old world appeal.
Dave fashioned the base of our pull toy from an old roller skate he found in a house clean out. It could not be more perfect.

Yard Sale Season Begins

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.
