The Dublin Market & Bazaar

September 27, 2017

The Fall Festival

This past weekend I was lucky enough to attend a fantastic antiques show — The Dublin Market & Bazaar. A dear old friend of mine, Maria Amarosa has created this amazing event, featuring 150 vendors from around the country. This is not just some flea market junk show, it’s set up like a little village with adorable street signs and the vendors do a great job of creating little ‘shops’ to view their items. There were shops with handmade and homemade goods like soaps and salsa, others who had re-purposed vintage finds, and then some shops that had original vintage items ready for your own imagination to bring them back to life or keep it just the way it is. Literally, something for everyone!

The huge open field is part of the Cricket Hill Farm in Dublin, NH. It was a picture perfect day to check out some vintage, handmade and unique finds. There were food vendors, as well as live music that was just the perfect background buzz for this fun day. I sang along to Bob Marley, Kenny Chesney and James Taylor while we browsed. We also saw some baby goats and a few classic cars (there was an actual classic cars show happening at the bazaar on Sunday). There was face painting and plenty of opportunities for memory making photo ops.

I was in love with many of the vendors who had home decor set up and staged so beautifully. I’m really into the ‘Modern Farmhouse’ look – think Joanna Gaines & ‘Fixer Upper’ — but I also like to incorporate some eclectic and colorful stuff in our decor. Here were some of my scenes of inspiration:


Sonnie the Dirt Road Darlin

We also got a look into Maria’s airstream camper ‘Sonnie – the Dirt Road Darlin’. This thing was SOOOO cool! I would love one for my backyard as my “she shed” when I need some me time. Maria is so amazing at design and it was absolutely gorgeous inside.


 

Vintage Label Co.

She’s also got a traveling shop she features at venues up and down New England — Vintage Label Co.ย This van is chuck full of gorgeous and unique vintage finds — especially clothing and accessories.

How cool is that?! I loooove those vibrant suitcases.

While I didn’t buy anything for our home this time — I’m fairly certain my bank account won’t be so lucky next time. The next event will be in June 2018 — click here to follow their page on Facebook and see what Maria and her crew are up to!

So if you’re in the NH area in June next year, make sure to put this on your to-do list, I promise you’ll love it!

Do you have a favorite antique shop or flea market you love going to?

    I am thousands of miles away, so I will not be able to visit the fair, but I will suggest to my friend who is holding a vintage boutique to do something similar. It’s very nice!
