Todd Farm Flea Market Update

We came, we saw, we....meh.

Todd Farm Flea Market was not a quite a hit for me and Steven, and I found myself thinking that I had probably overhyped it in my head, inevitably setting myself up for disappointment.

*Can't you see us riding this to the train station? ;) *
It's not that there wasn't some interesting stuff there...but it was a little more JUNK than I had expected. And I love junk...CUTE junk. This was more like JUNK junk. It reminded me of a messy basement or garage, and I've had more than my fair share of both of those this past year thankyouverymuch.

*Is a caption even necessary?*
As they always say with these type of events, it's hit or miss. And while it was a miss for us, our our friends Susie and Justin CLEANED UP. They found some lovely things for their soon-to-be-rejuvenated home, and left in a content state of victory.

*Our fellow treasure hunters with their beautiful vintage grate*
So for now I'm limiting my hunt to whatever I can do from the couch (hello, Craigslist)...and I've already got a hit:
This settee, listed for $425 by Jarred's Homegoods in Warwick, RI, would be perfect for the smaller of our 2 parlors. I've never heard of Jarred's, but they have a pretty good website, so check it out if you're in the market for consignments.

But don't scoop my settee!

  1. I know exactly where Jarred's is!!! I pass by signs for it all the time, and decided to poke on back by it one day (it's tucked back into a residential corner of apponaug warwick). It was already closed, but had some good looking stuff from what I could tell through the windows.
