This past Sunday, my cousin Maria invited all the cousins to the Vintage Bazaar up at Pettengill Farm in Salisbury, Massachusetts. One hundred and thirty antiques and craft vendors set up mini shops all over the farm two weekends a year. Maria, having gone in the Spring, claimed that it was right up my alley… and boy was she right!
The morning was grey and rainy but as soon as we arrived at the farm, the sky cleared and it turned out to be a beautiful fall day. The farmhouse with it’s lovely gardens was a site to see in itself but to the left and right were tents upon tents with vendors, food, pumpkin bowling, and live music.
We met up with my cousin Alex and his wife Sara for some furniture hunting. All of us are fairly new homeowners so we had our sights on some particulars. For us, it was a new coffee table. I had originally wanted to do a paint wash on our old coffee table but after one failed attempt, I can’t even bring myself to look at it covered up and sitting in our backyard.
But enough about that- on to the booths! We all oooed and ahhhed over this super long bench. “We could fit every cousin on it!”
This vendor had some bright and cheery colors and I loved these Mr. & Mrs. banners.
This little navy number kept catching my eye. The color was fabulous especially with the white milk glass set on top.
And this vendor had the most lovely color scheme! Everything was creamy ivories and greys! I felt right at home. And a pumpkin on a pedestal? Why didn’t I think of that!
After a fun morning of browsing I finally saw it. The perfect trunk for a coffee table! We’re going to add some casters to the bottom to give it a little more height but other than that, it’s perfect! Here it is in our living room below. All in all, a very successful trip to the Bazaar!
