Pin and/or bookmark My Favorite Second-Hand Shops from Vermont to Maine for later.
Have you ever attended an “Early Buy Event” before?
This is when vendors and dealers are invited to browse and shop an upcoming market prior to the opening day, which is this Friday thru Sunday should you be local and would like to attend.
I invited one of my girlfriends (who found this fabulous hat there) to join me, starting with dinner out and a wonderful time browsing with music and refreshments at Sage Farm Antiques later that evening.
Tickets were $10.00 each, purchased ahead of time.
I also met up with my friend Jennifer from The Cottage on Bunker Hill who lives just around the corner from Sage Farm Antiques. Lucky Duck!
Jennifer and I have been on many blog hops together and chat all the time over on Instagram, but this was our first time meeting up in person.
She blogs all about easy ways to love where you live.

Patsy Stone, Absolutely Fabulous
My favorite vendor booth this year was THE BARN AT TODD FARM by Tom Phaneuf.
Tom was selling the most beautiful french country linens, antique furniture pieces, and candles homemade by his niece. I wanted to take the entire booth home with me.
May You Bloom and Grow
With the theme of this vintage market being “May You Bloom and Grow”, this was definitely the go-to place for weathered and patina terracotta pots.
And all your other vintage garden needs. Like these large $2.00 rustic patina garden stakes that my friend Jennifer over at The Cottage on Bunker Hill snagged.
What’s Hiding Inside?
The two barns were filled with beautifully styled vendor booths, vintage goodies, and home decor items like some of these favorites…
Grab a refreshment, listen to the music, and simply browse around if you like…
Mastering The Art of French Cooking
It had gotten quite dark outside by the time we left the Sage Farm Antiques “Early Evening Buy Event”.
We had such a fun time and picked up a few goodies too.
The first antique piece I picked up was this blue and white bowl for just $14.00 I can’t resist old blue and white antiques such as this one, and for this price? Well, it now has a new home.
I’ve been looking for some antique green and white dishes to add to my blue and white collections, so when I saw this green and white crock bowl for $10, it also made its way home with me.
A couple of vintage picture frames caught my eye for $18 apiece.
I like the soft pastel colors, having our bathrooms in mind. My mother collected old pictures like this and I think they’ll match those beautifully.
