The Stockings Were Hung…

At the Vintage Thymes Monthly Market! Just a few pics of this weekend’s market, today, Saturday and Sunday.

VT Merry Christmas Box with Greens

Some of the most beautiful and creative items I have see yet! My booth is chock full of vintage items including this antique buggy bench-which I love.

I have been working on the cupboard since the summer, when I purchased it at a flea market in Maine. Somehow I managed to get the whole thing in the car and take it home. Now it’s your turn : )

Cupboard Stocked Open Doors

This antique jewel-encrusted dress form is astounding!

The artist, Nancy Rafi, reports that it took her 100 hours of construction, using pins, buckles, belts and buttons from all over the world. This is a truly one-o-f-a-kind piece. Simply Amazing.

So many cute vintage signs,

VT Merry & Bright

and if you don’t have a tree yet, you might like one of these! They are not real but they are so fun! These are glittery shabby chic.

This one’s wrapped in red plaid ribbon and already lighted

Weekend Update-Vintage Style!

This weekend is gonna be fun for vintage and antiques shopping! Loads of pickin’ places to choose from, so this week’s High Five goes to Antiques and Flea Market Finds! On the south shore of Boston, the weekend shops at WinSmith Mill Market Winsmith Market Legendin Norwood (recently featured on Channel 5’s Chronicle) are open, as usual, but this weekend also marks the return of the Vintage Thymes Monthly Market! Open Friday, Saturday and Sunday, they have restocked their shelves and are ready to sell!

Here is a pic from Beach Cottage Living’s new booth in the Vintage Thymes Market-great soft colors and fun beachy stuff-now if only we could have some beach weather around here…

This Sunday, Todd Farm in Rowley is opening for the season, cold weather be damned!

Todd Farm Sign

For those of you unfamiliar with Todd Farm, it is like a smaller slice of Brimfield heaven on the north shore of Boston. Hundreds of vendors, selling everything from old furniture to vintage guitars and just loads of fun junk and stuff. Well worth the trip up Rte 1a, but better go early- they open at 5am and they are only open on Sundays!!

And lastly, the Guerilla Staging Competition at the Mill 77 Trading Company in Amesbury begins tomorrow!

Mill 77 Guerilla Sign

Yours truly will be participating as a team member of “Mother Knows Best”. This is a first annual event to benefit “Our Neighbors Table“, so it should be a lot of fun and a lot of laughs. 40 minutes to design a room using only the available props on hand is most definitely a challenge, but they do have some really nice props! I will be blogging and tweeting about it, unless of course, we come in last place : (

Have a great weekend everyone! Hope you “pick” something fun to do!! Susan
