Is autumn a season for vintage? Yes, although I shop and decorate with vintage year-round, autumn is the time for all the fabulous outdoor vintage markets, craft fairs, antique shows, auctions, and more. Especially here in New England!
Today is day five of the Bloggers’ Best Fall Home Tour hosted by my friend Kelly from The Tattered Pew. I am SO excited to be joining 29 lovely ladies here today opening up their fall homes to you this entire week! You will find each of them linked at the end of my post.
If you are joining me from Jen over at Noting Grace, welcome! Isn’t Jen’s Amber and Gray fall decor simply amazing? And I adore her chunky knit yarn covered pumpkins too!
Welcome to our Home in Vermont
In Vermont, we are lucky enough to be able to visit a vintage market every single weekend during autumn. The crisp air, infamous foliage, sweaters, hiking, Oktoberfests, it’s all here. And definitely our season for vintage!
Favorite To Dos in Autumn?
My favorite thing to do in autumn is shopping at the Vermont Vintage Market Days hosted in early October out of Rutland, Vermont. I never miss it! Check out a few of my visits over the years:
- Vintage Market Days Vermont
- Decorating with Vintage Finds
- Vintage Market Days and Inspiring Finds
- A Vintage Market and a Vision Board

Autumn’s Delight in the Season of Vintage
I found this vintage Johnson & Johnson Autumn’s Delight dishware set for $65 thrifting in Maine over the summer. I purchased it for our favorite season for vintage, autumn at our home here in Vermont.

SHOP THIS POST IN THE SEASON FOR VINTAGE
With friends visiting this weekend, it was time for this “Autumn’s Delight” collection to make its debut on my favorite second-hand table on the porch. I hope you enjoy the combination of vintage dishware, thrifted bistro chalkboard, and this second-hand wallpaper table.
If you are interested in purchasing this vintage pattern, Replacements, LTD is my go-to website for old dishwares. Along with eBay and Etsy.
Welcome to the Porch
This front porch has a magnificent view of the Green Mountains of Vermont and is where we spend the majority of our time during the New England seasons here at home.
Over this past summer, we had this porch refinished with new columns, support beams, and flooring. We’ve also added a fire pit, patio, and natural stone steps out front. You may see more of these plans and progress here.
Can you identify my little mistake here? Oops…
Wallpaper Table in the Season for Vintage
When I found this Johnson and Johnson’s Autumn Delight table set thrifting, I knew they were going to complement each other perfectly in the fall, our wonderful season for vintage!
I love the moody lighting and colors of autumn.
Outdoor Tablescape in the Season for Vintage
A few simple and small orange pumpkins along with a bouquet of fresh-cut flowers from my neighbor’s flower garden set the scene.
Oh, and a stack of blue vintage books for a little added height.
Apples for color and raspberries hand-picked from the garden to snack on.
Little apple and pear glass bowls were found at a yard sale.
Champagne flutes aren’t just for modern tables either, they add such beautiful charm to a rustic setting as well.
Oh, and you may appreciate How to Refinish a Wood Table in Less Than 1 Hour! See how I refinished this wallpaper table, hint it turned out beautifully!
Placemats or Tablecloth?
I often struggle between placemats and tablecloths on my tables, especially outdoors.
Here I tried the table without either of them at first, and then I moved quickly to a colorful placemat, accentuating the season for vintage.
I love coming out to the porch for these mountain views every morning. It’s so peaceful and just warms the heart.
