Where does stuff at SoWa Vintage Market come from?

on Wed, 10/24/2012 - 15:50

Everyone wants to know, where does the stuff that people bring to SoWa Vintage Market come from?

Everywhere!

Seriously!

Finding stuff becomes a lifestyle.  A perpetual hunt.  Estate Sales, Yard sales, flea markets, antiques stores, auctions, thrift/secondhand stores, and, occassionally getting lucky + seeing something good someone else has thrown on trash day.  Everywhere.  We go on hunting expeditions where we knock on doors, American Pickers' style.  The idea is we see something we think has a good look and that someone can re-use.  It's good for the planet, it's good for the soul, it's a lot of fun finding stuff (not so much fun when you don't).   And it's great to match our treasures with people who really want to adopt them.

Check out these photos of stuff found at SoWa Vintage Mkt.

And stay tuned.  We're back in blog mode, so lots more coming.

SoWa Vintage Market, INSIDE, OPEN ALL YEAR, Sundays 10-4 and First Fridays 4-8.

Framed photo of vintage store found at a rural barn sale on the way to son's soccer game.

Scarves hand picked at a flea market while vacationing with the family on the Cape.

Awesome metal shelf found by digging it out of an overgrown mess of vines from a defunct CT antiques shop.

Picking at its most basic!

Our Lady of the Perpetual Hunt @ an antiques store on the way to a wedding on the Coast!

Collection of cast iron frying pans found one at a time, everywhere, ready for restoration.

Restored Frying pans, and other cool stuff, available at SoWa Vintage Market Sundays + First Fridays.
