Riot of color at the Vintage Bazaar

One of the things I enjoy most about being a vendor at the Vintage Bazaar is spending two entire days on the grounds. There is always something unique for sale and a party of color everywhere.


Not my style, but the orange is hot.

If I had I porch these green chairs would have gone home with me. I DID buy the hooked rug behind them.

Scarves make a mannequin’s skirt.

The Linen Lady is a booth of total temptation. I didn’t succumb. For once.

Plaid, iridescent pumps!

A table ? with motorcycle bags for storage.

More than one vendor had a cute little trailer.

I’m always glad to work with our wonderful neighbor, Faye. At our very first Bazaar she brought a huge container of cold watermelon to share on a hot, sticky day. You’re awesome, Faye!


What’s next? 31 Days of Insanity!

Here’s how things looked on Sunday afternoon at Pettengill: Nothing left but trampled grass. We sold it ALL! (Just dreaming!)

The booth is gone, but my car is still loaded with stuff ManRay, my hubby, didn’t want to unload last night at 10 p.m. after a long drive home from MA. We got our wish for wonderful weather on Sunday. All my tiki mugs and Viewmaster reels went home with new owners. And we’re already looking forward to the next Dish Sisters Event.

monthofmakeovers150Over on Nester’s blog, The Nesting Place, they’re gearing up for a month-long link party in October. We’re planning to get in on the action using the theme of 31 Days of Makeovers. We’re brainstorming, making lists of potential projects and digging through boxes for forgotten items that need a little magic. I’ve got a teal and gold sari with a hole in the middle, a quilt that was loved to shreds, a stack of blue plastic tiles, and pulp fiction book covers–and that’s just for starters. Too bad I wasn’t planning this in August because I probably should have started with 31 Days of Organizing My Junk. Can we really pull this off? Stay tuned!
