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!
Visit the beautiful multi-dealer shop located in the historic barn at Todd Farm, Offering a fine collection of Antique, Primitive, Traditional, Farmhouse, Industrial, Mid-Century and Repurposed furnishings as well as a wide range of small accessories, handmade, and one-of-a-kind, for your collection and home.
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…
We seem to have a trend going on in our finds lately. Hmmm. All are available at The Barn at Todd Farm, 275 Main St, Rowley, MA.
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.
