Scenes from The Vintage Bazaar

Just a couple hours from Cape Cod is the town of Salisbury, where a lovely farm sits- Pettingill Farm. Twice a year, they are invaded by the most amazing fair- The Vintage Bazaar.

It’s always worth it to arrive early.
There you will be inspired by other’s creativity, their upcycling, their sense of decoration,
 and the thrill of the hunt.


A big trend is creating these amazing potting benches from repurposed items.
This one was a favorite of mine.


I also love booths with oodles of odds and ends. It’s like a huge treasure hunt.
Other times, certain things just speak volumes.


I could spend hours around vintage ribbon, sewing, and knitting items. Even worse, I could spend the day in a box deep full of amazing buttons!


I have to say that I never come home empty handed.

Hello friends, welcome! Follow along on our chicken, beekeeping, gardening, crafting and cooking adventures from Cape Cod.

  • It all looks so fun, but I especially like your photo of the baseballs and spools!

  • Do you have pictures of what you brought home? I love going to antique fairs. You never know what you are going find and some many cool things see.

    • Hi Nicole! I brought home some goodies for the garden and the chicken coop. I'll be sharing them in an upcoming blog post or two. Stay tuned!
