On Sunday morning I dragged my butt out of bed for Todd’s Farm fleamarket. Todd’s Farm is a weekly Sunday flea-market held in Rowley, Massachusetts. All the insider’s tell me I have to get there before 7:30am. I just can’t bear getting up that early on a Sunday. I was there by 8:45, not so bad. My tactic? Getting there a little later might help me haggle for a lower price.
My first trip of the season was pretty successful. I saw a lot of things I liked for reasonable prices. I scored a piece of embroidery with birds for $5, light insulates 3 for $5, and an antique bentwood captain’s chair for $15. The captain’s chair might become my new office chair. Maybe a little ticking cushion?
As I was leaving the market I spied four kitchen style Windsor chairs (image below). I’ve been searching for this exact chair style for months. The dealer wanted $150 for a set of 4. I think I could have talked him down to $100 but I didn’t have enough money. I left kinda heartbroken hoping I would come across the chairs again this summer. I first spotted the style in Martha Stewart last July. Please flea-market gods find me again!!
