where are they now

As you probably know by now, I love the thrill of the hunt! I love uncovering a long forgotten treasure and giving it a new home or purpose.  It is kind of like fostering puppies!  Sometimes these treasures are found in the bottom of a box at a flea market or in a closet at a granny estate sale or buried in a barn. The next great thing can truly be hiding anywhere just waiting to be discovered.  It is such an exciting thought actually. Many of the treasures I find I don’t actually keep.  Or at least not for … Continue reading where are they now

just another manic monday

After a fabulously gorgeous weekend in PA, it is a cold and rainy Monday.  And that is A-ok with me.  It is forcing me to stay in and catch up on some work.  However, last week was pretty great for sourcing and selling vintage finds. First let me tell you, yesterday was Clover Market…ahhmazing.  As always.  We had a fabulous crowd!  Sunny skies and fun neighboring vendors too.  My first customers of the day were from Massachusetts.  (Hi girls!)  They traveled to Philly all the way from Mass just to visit us at Clover.  How cool is that?  If you … Continue reading just another manic monday

treasure monday

I have been reading all of the Lucketts recaps out there in blog world.  I really wish I could have went to the antique market in Virginia this past weekend.  It sounds amazing…15 acres…170 dealers.  Swoon!  Judging by everyone’s pictures, it looks like there was a ton of talent and treasures to be had.  Hmmph…if only we could have made it.  We’re a little glum about it here but next year for sure. We spent the weekend tending to our long overdue garden work. Lots of weeding, planting and mulching.  We also celebrated 3 birthdays with one each day.  Very … Continue reading treasure monday


Happy almost-weekend friends! And thank goodness for the weekend because it is the season’s first Clover Market on Sunday.  Yay!  We’re packing up the truck and getting ready to hit the road for our favorite vintage popup shop.  The event is looking’ good with 100 fabulous vendors. Here’s a peek of what we’ll have for sale on Sunday…fun old items like this unique old scale that makes a perfect wine rack. A stack of trunks and foot lockers taller than me!  Seriously everyone needs a cool old trunk in their life to use for storage, as a bench or coffee table.  … Continue reading TGIF

tis the season

I couldn’t be happier about the arrival of Spring. Afterall, it means the arrival of all of the really, really ridiculously good junking. I am totally in my element when uncovering long forgotten vintage goodies in the back of someone’s barn like on Saturday when I scored all of this and some… Remember what I said last week about only making strategic purchases and buying less blah blah?  Well, forget it!  I was just kidding but thank god I cleaned out the garage to make room for everyone else’s junk.  Woo hoo! And by the way, I don’t know if … Continue reading tis the season

spring cleaning

What an absolutely gorgeous weekend!  I’m sad to see it come to an end.  The sun was shining.  Birds were chirping.  Daffodils were blooming.  And I successfully purged and organized the growing hoard in the garage.  For real.  I took 4 boxes to the thrift store on Saturday and did not step foot in the store to shop for more because that would pretty much cancel out the entire effort of purging.  Ok so the 4 boxes were tiny.  But still I purged.  However, I did shop for some fab vintage earlier in the day.  I couldn’t let you down and not pursue … Continue reading spring cleaning
