Boston Handmade at the Vintage Bazaar in Salisbury, MA

by Leanne of Loomination

I've been showing my work at the Vintage Bazaar at Pettengill Farm since the very first one in the spring of 2011. It is one of my favorite shows every year, mostly because it's always changing and there's so much going on.

There are over 130 vendors, a mix of vintage and antique dealers along with artists and artisans, live music, food trucks and other special events (such as the Vintage Motorcycle Show at the Fall VB) all spread out on the grounds of a picturesque flower farm in Salisbury, MA.

Held just a mile from the coast, in one of my hometowns, I have a personal connection with the area and remember going to many hayrides and holiday open houses at Pettengill Farm. The Vintage Bazaar is truly an amazing experience, especially for me, since I've seen it grow over the years.

I just joined Boston Handmade in late 2013, but this year at our annual meeting in January we were discussing events and I thought the Vintage Bazaar would be a great place for a BH popup. There will be eight Boston Handmade members participating under a giant 10 x 40' tent (well really 4 small tents lashed together to make one really big one).

This is the first thing I've organized for BH and I'm really excited about it! I'm not sure if that's because I love this show so much or because we're having a giant weekend long BH sleepover, but I'm sure it's going to be amazing all around.
