The Vintage Bazaar at Pettengill Farm

I had a wonderful day with my family at 'The Vintage Bazaar at Pettengill Farm' in Salisbury, Massachusetts yesterday. Mother Nature granted a perfect fall day for this outdoor market. 
This gigantic weathered wood frame welcomed us into the show. It captured the gorgeous barn perfectly within the live canvas.
 The bazaar had an eclectic mixture of artisan crafts, antiques and architectural salvage.
 A sprinkling of fall was an ongoing theme throughout the booths.
This talented artist had the most amazing metal art pieces. His name is 'Gordon Frost Sr.' of 'Rusty Iron Art'. This pipe smoking snowman made from salvaged items gives you a taste of the skilled mind and hand that created it.
This metal statue was 6 feet + tall and stood guard over all the proceedings. It's towering presence caught the attention of everyone passing by.
This booth by 'Yellow Chair Market' was one of my favorites. It was filled with all sorts of things that I love - vintage numbers in a rusted basket, an old industrial cart, metal pulley bookends, candle holders with mason jars as gumball machines all resting on a diamond floor cloth.
I love my vintage wood boxes and this crate with the black diamond pattern pulled at my heart strings. Such a simple detail to add a bit more character....love it!
This was such a pretty vintage metal basket filled with numbered milk jugs and softened with a few fresh flowers.
I am always drawn to unique things and this vintage VW Bug Camper in the perfect shade of robins egg blue sucked me right in. It belonged to a talented interior designer - 'Holly Gagne Interior Design' with a flair for using vintage items in her design.
I was so enamored by the camper, that I missed the gorgeous wreath on the front bumper, until just now.
 Another booth with some creative repurposing of architectural salvaged items.
 These are so sweet and whimsical and the angel wings are just beautiful.
Children danced happily to the live folk music that played throughout the day.  
This antique truck was simply parked along the grounds. My husband has a '49 Chevy truck that looks identical to this. I am thinking a turquoise paint job may be in its future.... 
 
The show continues today from 10am to 5pm and there is also a Vintage Motorcycle Show today as well. This was my first time going to this semi-annual event and I am quite sure it won't be my last.
