THE VIN­TAGE BAZAAR

Flea Market Décor - - Treasure Hunting -

Where: Why:

ES­TAB­LISHED IN 2011, THIS MAR­KET IS HELD TWICE A YEAR IN­DOORS AND TWICE A YEAR OUT­DOORS. “We’ll have 250 to 300 ven­dors,” says founder and pro­ducer Devon Chouinard. She’s a fourth-gen­er­a­tion junker. “Grow­ing up, I was brought to ev­ery flea mar­ket up and down the Eastern se­aboard.” This event has plenty of free on­site

When:

June 30 to July 1, and Oc­to­ber 7 and 8. park­ing, or there’s also on­site camp­ing, she says, “so bring your tent, camper or vin­tage trailer!” The June event will have a theme of vin­tage car­ni­val, with an old-fash­ioned carousel, nos­tal­gic games and face paint­ing. When you get hun­gry, sam­ple cui­sine from one of the nearly 40 food trucks. Browse flea-mar­ket finds from ven­dors who come from 18 states, as far away as Texas, Florida and Cal­i­for­nia, to sell here. “It’s very eclec­tic,” says Devon. “We have sal­vaged, farm-fresh picks, ready for up-pur­pos­ing and DIY; and then ven­dors who have al­ready up­cy­cled, so [their items are] ready to go. There’s shabby chic and French style, and also ar­ti­sans who craft things, such as leather goods made out of vin­tage belts. Plus, it’s still tied to New Eng­land, so we have real an­tiques, too, like the clas­sic Wind­sor chairs.”
