Carmen and Ginger LIVE This Weekend!

We will be LIVE in Massachusetts this coming weekend; Sunday, October 16th from 9 - 4 in Harvard, MA (postponed from Saturday, due to rain and wind) at the 40th Annual Harvard Flea!  This is a beautiful flea market, in the rolling hills of rural Massachusetts, surrounded by changing leaves and autumn vistas!  About an hour from the Boston/Cambridge area, Providence, RI,  Concord, NH or Springfield, it is a short drive on Route 111 from either Route 495 or Route 2.  So get out this weekend to an awesome flea!  Get your pumpkins and apple cider en-route (or, if it were me, I'd hit the flea first so I did not miss anything!)  There are portable toilets on the field, and, indoor toilet at the school right next to the field.  Many food vendors (several that sell out first because the food is so good,) and over 175 dealers selling vintage goods!  Need I say more?

I snapped this photo a couple of years ago of my parents shopping at the flea - I think it makes sense to show it here so that you can channel their plaid-in-autumn New England style for your own visit!

 This image is from last year, when I went just to shop. Wondering if it is worth the trip?  Think again! (and this only looking at half the field!)

If you have read my blog before, you have heard me lament that all the nicely merchandised, girlie, shabby chic, industrial type shows like The Farm Chicks always seem to be in other parts of the country.  Well, I am hoping to bring a little of that aesthetic to my booth this Saturday!  (just ignore the U-Haul parked in back and we'll be fine)

I will have oodles of vintage linens - especially colorful aprons! - mostly every day with a few holiday included, all priced from $1 to $10!

I will bring my wreaths handmade from vintage ornaments, my stockings made from vintage barkcloth and an assortment of vintage Christmas linens, decor and antique items, like these amazing German cast iron tree stands, as well!

I am still madly trying to get everything priced and packed, but, have snapped a few pics to give you an idea of the goods!  There is a TON more, including vintage linens, aluminum serving trays, vintage bread boxes, round travel cases, patterns, industrial chic items, even a great antique green painted pirate's chest!  (Now you know why I need the U-Haul!)  It will be amazing, trust me!  I am about two rows over from the food, near the wide side aisle.  Look for the colorful aprons hanging on the clothesline.  Please stop by and say "Hi!" as it will be great to see you!
