Madison Bouckville

new blue scooter at home on the barn porch
My mother and I traveled through little towns, by old farms, and in and out of lush green valleys to reach a giant corn field filled with antiques... vintage paradise. For the second year in a row we visited Madison Bouckville's huge antique show and reveled in all things old and beautiful. This year we spent most of our time outside the gates in the little village that hosts the show. There were just as many dealers hawking their goods in every little alley or front lawn they could find to pitch a stall, and it was hard not to get side tracked in the most wonderful of ways. The history and palette of days gone by never fails to inspire me...
stars and chairs

shoes and baklite

ladles and pins

We only brought home a few lovelies this year... here's a peek:

vintager kodak photo clips
Kodak photo clips
 vintage textiles
cotton tatting and feed sacks
 jars and miner's pail
miner's lunch pail and blue jars

 And of course, that blue scooter in the first photo had to come to the barn. Mmm... hoping your weekend was filled with treasures, too.

  11. What are you planning to do with the photo clips and lunch pale? **curious little me** ;)

  12. Great finds but I still can't stop drooling over the shot of bakelite jewerly.

  13. Lisa- my mother will be taking her lunch to school in the pail. She teaches nursery school. The photo clips might display some of her artwork or that of her grandchildren. Nice questions.
