Seasonal Scenes from the Market

This weekend marks the November edition of the Vintage Thymes Monthly Market, Farmhouse Holiday.

Stockings Were Hung

It seems like we just wrapped the October show with pumpkins and Halloween, and here we are barreling into the holiday season!

VTM November

I was blown away when I walked through the double red doors

Joy

on Friday morning. So much sparkle and Christmas cheer!

Pink Tree and Santa

(Of course, I was thinking Thanksgiving, not Christmas, because I am most definitely a one-holiday-at-a-time kind of gal.

Country Design Home

So when I conceptualized my booth, I was planning Thanksgiving dinner and making pies! So my space is a little less sparkly

Green Tree Sparkle

and Santa-inspired than many others…

Santas Clogs

but I am pulling out my cans of sparkly snow and adding some bling for the December market!)

Party Time at Vintage Thymes

Last night I participated in the one-year anniversary celebration at the Vintage Thymes Monthly Market -what a blast from the past!

History PlanterThere was delicious food and drink, great live music and sooo many shoppers (the line to get in started forming at 4:30!) I have been involved in this vintage market for a few months now, and have been continuously impressed by the owners, Robin and Nancy,

Vintage Thymes Founders Robin & Nancyas well as the many talented vendors,

Vintage Shades of Grey Mantel

who pull out all the stops to create breath-taking vignettes within the confines of their booth spaces. (this is my space : )

Country Design Home

This month, in particular, was more fabulous than ever, IMHO!

Vintage Bike VignetteThe range of vintage items available, from rustic tin pigs

Big Tin Pigto gorgeous florals

Vintage Shades Floralto ingeniously funky remade home wares-whoooo would think that two old saws could be so adorable?!

Saw Owlswas overwhelming, and I noticed that many shoppers stayed for hours trying to take it all in and find some perfect pieces for their homes and shops.

Harvest ThymeI had a chance to take a few pics before the mayhem began

Autumn Waresto give you an idea of the breadth of talent that is showcased in this monthly event.

Vintage Thymes Trunk(Disclaimer: some of the items in these pics were sold last night, but I assure you there is so much more to see and purchase over this long weekend!)

Vintage Cream and HydrangeasSo, if you have a chance to get down (or up) to the south shore this weekend, make sure you head on over to the WinSmith Mill Market to take it all in.

Starfish Tablescape

And, on Sunday, a special treat-there will be an outdoor anniversary fair as well, with music and food trucks and more vintage goodies with over 30 dealers! Have a happy harvest weekend, everyone! Susan

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…

Beach Cottage Living

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
