Pettengill Farm Visit

Two weekends ago I had the pleasure of attending a Vintage Bizarre Fair at the nearby Pettengill Farm with my family.  It was a kid-friendly event with music, food and plenty of shopping!
Sweet Karen of A Shabby Moment in Time joined us on the glorious fall weather day.  As we posed for this photo, the observant lady behind us bought a neat old vintage bottle carrier I was eyeing.  You snooze, you lose!  :)

The owner if this vendor space was Martha of Tara's Treasures in New York.  She graciously allowed us to photograph her displays here:
neat old fleur-de-lis tin panels!

pillow from old ticking fabric

vintage mercury beads

wreath made with lovely vintage Christmas finds

Here's Karen shopping at another fabulous tent by Tracey of The Cozy Nook.  Tracey made some cool outdoor lanterns from fence posts:

I was a terrible photographer that day - too busy chatting with Karen!  Hopefully she'll post some of her photos of the event so you can see more. 
It was a fun New England fall day and I didn't even mind so much that I came home empty-handed.  Sometimes it's just good to browse. 
I'll leave you with a photo of this pretty old house on the property:

How adorable you are Susan! You have a lot of willpower coming home empty handed but I agree, sometimes it's nice just to browse:) And how fun that you got to spend the day with a fellow blogger!

swoon... at that old home
Looks like it would have been a great place to browse.
I really miss fleas and shows in the fall.
That crisp air and all the vintage-y finds.
I will miss going home this year for it all.

Sounds like you had a fun day, Susan! Window shopping is always fun too, that way you'll have even more $$$ to spend at the next event:) I am drooling over that gorgeous tin ceiling, it's amazing!

Sandi said...

What a fun day you had!! Sometimes window shopping is just as fun as buying. :)
