Handmade Holiday Home Tour 2014 – Rustically Vintage

Welcome to my holiday home tour!  This year I am linking up to Jennifer Rizzo’s Holiday House Walk! For first time visitors, I am Jodi and I live with my husband in an apartment in Boston, which makes decorating (especially for the holidays) a challenge that I love to take on!  Whether you rent or own, live in an apartment or a house, it is always important

My Bazaar Experience – The Vintage Bazaar

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend, I certainly did, especially because I went to the Vintage Bazaar on Sunday!  The first time I went to the Bazaar was in the fall, and my sister and I had a wonderful time, so much so that we decided to come again for the summer festival!  For those of you who don’t know what the Vintage Bazaar

Shop ‘Til You Drop – Cambridge Antique Market

So Cambridge has an indoor Antique Market, who knew? No really, who knew? Please confess.  I surely did not know, and neither did my mother when I dragged her there with me yesterday.  The Cambridge Antique Market is located in East Cambridge, close to the Museum of Science, and is also within walking distance to my apartment.  Mind blown. The Cambridge Antique Market, which I

Non Buyer’s Remorse – Antiquing in Vermont

Not only is Vermont one of the prettiest states, it is also one of the best states to find antiques!  Driving through the quaint towns it is hard not stop every time I pass an Antique sign, and believe me, there are many!  But the one shop I keep coming back to is, William Austin’s Antiques, in Chester, Vermont. On a recent trip back from

How to Get Some Junk in Your Trunk – Trip Tips!

Well, this is it folks, I’m wrapping up my series on the Longest Yard Sale with some Trip Tips.  While some of these tips can be useful for all kinds of flea market or tag sales, you will definitely want to remember them if you decide to venture out onto the old 127 Corridor in the coming years for the World’s Longest Yard Sale! 1.)

World’s Longest Yard Sale – What We Bought

Now I have told you how we fared at our stops in Tennessee and Kentucky at The World’s Longest Yard Sale, but I have yet to show you any real pictures of our purchases, until now.  You ask, and you shall receive. Below are a few of the smaller items we picked up along the way, which include a few old wooden crates, a vintage

World’s Longest Yard Sale – Kentucky

For the second part of our trip we decided to concentrate on Cambellsville and Frankfort, Kentucky.  I would like to say that it was a smooth transition from one state to the other, however that wouldn’t be entirely true.  Getting lost in rural Kentucky can be a little frustrating as the roads wind and the scenery repeats itself with barn after barn and cow after

The World’s Longest Yard Sale – Tennessee

We didn’t really know what to expect when we headed down south for the Longest Yard Sale.  We had an idea, sure, but we were newbies.  My mother, sister and I left from Connecticut and drove to Roanoke Virginia, after stopping at the Natural Bridge where we took pictures, and hiked about five miles, unintentionally.  Then we headed to Nashville where we spent two full days

Favorite Finds – Floor Clock

When shopping at flea markets there are so many fabulous pieces that one can find! Therefore I would like to incorporate a new blog category called Favorite Finds! Above you will see one of my own favorite flea market finds, a Swedish Mora Floor Clock replica. When I saw this clock, I knew I had to have it, and for $30 why not?  I knew
