atf1We will be up early on Sunday, June 24, 2012 to make the trip to Todd Farm, the antique flea market in Rowley, MA

We will have a nice collection of what we like to call “smalls” – including a ton of new to market vintage buttons and sewing collectibles from my mother’s vast collection.  Also on hand will be a slew books – which were popular at our last sale.  There will be a ton of new items freshly curated from the barn and auctions.  We are also using new display trays that will let buyers sift through the smalls with ease.

Look for us set up behind the barn (from about 6 AM – 1 PM) with our white tent if the wind allows. If it is crowded, keep looking around – we will be there somewhere.

As always, we will post early Sunday morning (we need to be out by 4:00 AM to make the trip) to confirm our plans – something may come up or the weather could change, so stay tuned.

If you are looking for something in particular you think we may have in our collection – send me a note and I will see if I can find something of interest to bring:

GOOSEI have posted about Fossil in the past.  First, I love Fossil because I am a watch-aholic and have several of their fine time pieces in my collection.  But I also love Fossil because of their brand identity that has been focused on vintage looks over the past few years.

I love the Fossil aesthetic in general, but I like the vintage thing they are going with, in particular, l love their ongoing “Fossil Finds” section of their website, a kind of online flea market of select vintage items – all well curated and present – and very cool.

The current Fossil Finds collection includes a bunch of summer themed items – including travel and vacation related things and summer sports, like croquet an badminton.  I like these Vintage Shuttlecocks which would make a nice addition to my own vintage summer yard games collection which I use to decorate my front porch.

About the Vintage Shuttlecocks from Fossil Finds: “In badminton, players score points by striking a shuttlecock (or birdie) with their racquet to pass over the net and land in their opponent’s half of the court. Made of high-quality goose feathers, these Vintage Shuttlecocks would make a sure-fire conversation starter in any home. This set contains six shuttlecocks.”

I love the whole look and feel of the “Long Live Vintage” spread in Fossil’s current catalog:
