Do you love the look of coastal vintage decor? Wait until you see this “Sun Washed and Sandy” market at Sage Farm Antiques on the Seacoast.

Sun Washed and Sandy

Was the theme of this weekend’s vintage pop-up market. Sage Farm Antiques in North Hampton, NH has several themed pop-ups over the spring, summer, and fall seasons. You may find a list of their upcoming events HERE.

The prices are always reasonable and I’ve found the best time to go is on a hot Saturday when everyone is at the beach here on the Seacoast.

We have a pretty big photo shoot coming up at our home here in Maine this Wednesday (more to come on that) therefore this vintage pop-up couldn’t have been more timely.

And Ella our Bernese Mountain dog was able to ride along with me this time, as they also have a Berner, Truman who Ella loves to play with when we visit.

What makes coastal cottages unique?

It’s a casual and quirky character that reflects long days at the beach, a drive in a convertible, a fire pit in the backyard, reading a book in an old hammock, collected beach shells & driftwood, peanut butter taffy in the kitchen, and the promise of a good night’s sleep in the coziest of coastal cottage style.

Let’s Go Antiquing

First up I found this pretty in pink vintage McCoy vase for $29; so cute. Then I remembered the paper mache roses around the corner in all their shades of pink for $2.00 a piece.

A match made in heaven…

Picnic Baskets

Don’t you love old picnic baskets? Well, all baskets for that matter am I right?

But there’s just something about picnic baskets that are so dreamy.

I didn’t need a picnic basket today, however, I did come across this antique basket selling for just $28.

For our photo shoot this week, I need to remove the television from our living room, and this basket will replace it sitting pretty on top of my mother’s favorite antique blue cabinet.

Now what to fill it with? What do you think?

I already have a basket full of pinecones. Blue hydrangeas maybe?

Loved these cuties too!

This little turquoise bucket filled with shells is just too much.

And I have major regrets that I let this one go.

But I have a basket of sand dollars that I found out “Thrifting with the Gals” last summer. You may see more of it here in the post, Vintage Glassware – Because It’s All About the Glass.

An Irish Blue Striped Pitcher

Blue and Irish are all I needed to know and at just $18…

To be seen in a bathroom, bedroom, or in your favorite outdoor space.

On a kitchen counter for extra storage. Ahhh all that chippiness and coastal vintage cottage decor that can only be found at the vintage markets.

I love how these lime green striped straws with vintage soda fountain glasses share fond memories of summer days gone by.

And how about those green Apples paired with them?

Today, we found some wonderful finds at the “Sun Washed and Sandy” market along with a blue vintage luggage rack, a fabulous round pillow, and this antique basket.
