This past weekend was a very fun weekend indeed! The weather was beautiful, cool, but nice. On Saturday, I went to The Garden of Beaden for a trunk show held by Serendipity Salvage, a company formed by a couple of friends. It was a really fantastic trunk show and I came away with some wonderful finds. Serendipity Salvage specializes in mixed media vintage, something I really love. They had the old fashioned wooden baby blocks, old baby shoes and vintage aprons.
There's quite an assortment of game pieces, keys, kitchy charms, lace and do dads.
There were buttons and you know how I feel about buttons.
Beautiful old perfume bottles:
Wonderful dolls and scuffied up figurines:
Isn't this a beautiful old pair of shoes?
They had a great selection of frozen Charlottes, which I have been experimenting with lately in a new project:
And these doll heads, which I use for the tin dolls. They had some great old tins, too.
I believe their plan is to travel around to various shops and hold trunk shows, so if you are interested, you can contact them for your own wonderful trunk show. Guaranteed fun.
That was Saturday's fun. And I rode the motorcycle to the show and then around running errands, so that made it even better.
That leaves Sunday. I decided to go on a bicycle ride in the morning to Claremont village. It was a beautiful day and just a little ride. I figured I would stop for coffee, maybe a bite to eat. What I didn't know was that Claremont has a farmer's market on Sundays.
There were artists set up selling their wares along with the usual produce you would expect to find:
I think that might be yarrow, but I'm not entirely sure.
But there were a few favorite things at the market. Like the Ukelele Girls:
I'm sorry I didn't get all their sign in the photo. They were singing away, having a grand time, making a few dollars, too. Love it.
And then there was this:
Looks like one might do fairly well with insta-poems! This was a fine young lad with his portable typewriter and paper. I just managed to catch him before he left for church:
And my poem?
Sometimes you must rush
even if you want hours
you get a minute.
How true, how true.
It was a fine weekend but as I like to say on a Monday morning, It's back to the flour mill! Well, not quite but nearly. While I was in Claremont, I happened upon a bicycle shop, went in a inquired and plan to ride my bike back there this morning where I will have a rack and baskets put on the back. Then, when I happen upon a farmer's market, I can buy that beautiful bunch of yarrow.
I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!
