I HAPPENED UPON a sweet little shop in Farmington today.
Nancy, the owner, and Nita, who sells at Vintage Marketplace, provided a warm welcome for my husband and me who were out on one of our “drives.”
This occasional shop at 302 Oak Street in the heart of downtown, is packed with antiques, collectibles and crafty goodness.
With the Fourth of July only days away, I turned my camera lens to all things red, white and blue. Be assured, though, that this marketplace is filled with lots of great finds, not just Fourth of July related merchandise.
Here’s a sampling of the patriotic goodness you will discover inside:
However…if you want to purchase anything showcased here, you will have exactly five hours to do so. Nancy’s shop opens at 11 a.m. tomorrow (Sunday, June 29) and closes at 4 p.m. Remember, hers is an occasional shop, meaning she’s open only two weekends a month and on the third Thursday for Ladies Night.
When the Vintage Marketplace reopens on July 17, it will be filled with completely new inventory, Nancy tells me.
This is definitely a shop worth visiting as much for the merchandise as the friendly crew who run it.
