I got up at 6:30 am on Sunday and headed up to Todd Farm for some bargain hunting! Todd Farm flea market is held every Sunday in Rowley, Mass from April 3rd to November 7th. The market boasts over 240 vendors featuring an assortment of vintage wares and antiques.
I’m on the hunt for brass candlesticks, tables, mirrors and rugs. I didn’t find any of those things (I bought $1 ikat belts) but I spotted this gorgeous windsor bench for $600. The proportions were a bit different and felt earlier and more primitive? I found this similar bench on an old auction site from 2008. The seat was really deep and made of one solid board. The seller said she inherited it from her grandfather but it didn’t fit in her new house.
My mind scrabbled to where I could put it?? At almost 6 feet long it’s too large for my house. I wish I had a longer wall in my someday mudroom or a dining room table long enough to use the bench on one side (like this). Such a beauty! Hope it went to a good home!
