Color, color everywhere at The Vintage BazaarPosted: June 26, 2014
The Vintage Bazaar is not the best shopping experience for play-it-safe-with-beige people. (On second thought, maybe I just ignored all the safe, neutral stuff!) It’s chock full of fun and colorful treasures. I didn’t have a lot of time for shopping, but I did grab a few snapshots.
First, the furniture…
My dining room chairs are this exact style, but I never thought of doing this with them. Adding slatted seats has got to be easier than messing with new upholstery.
My poor little row house patio isn’t big enough for furniture or I would have been so tempted to bring these home. I loved the purple and green print on the cushions and all the coordinating accessories.
Not a fan of purple and green? You could have taken home yellow and orange.
I wouldn’t change a thing about this green metal glider except to add some comfy new cushions. How about bark cloth? Repurposed chenille bedspreads? Old camp blankets? All three to rotate for different seasons?
Two things I loved but didn’t buy: the Hudson Bay striped blanket and the bright green metal chair.
I have two vintage china cabinets similar to these. Mine are a tame, creamy white. Should I go color crazy and repaint them? Would you?
This buffet cabinet made me think of the circus or a carnival fun house. I really, really wanted the red sewing machine.
I think this table was in Cari Cucksey’s booth, but I could be wrong about that.
Smaller things caught my eye, too. Like this set of Homer Laughlin Harlequin dishes. In all my years of shopping I’ve never seen more than a handful of pieces, much less a complete set.
Tea for two and fancy schmancy sandwiches would be on the menu if I had this picnic suitcase.
Dress or apron? Either way this piece is wonderful. Don’t you just love the heart applique pockets?
The oddity prize for the weekend would have to go to this small arrangement.
Then there was a nod to the lobster traps dotting the coastline near Salisbury.
And last, but certainly not least, I spied this little guy from a galaxy far, far away.
I didn’t even have time to look at the entire field of craft booths. Maybe in September!
Hope you had a fun vintage treasure shopping weekend wherever you are!
We will be over the moon and totally love you if you share us with your friends!
