Fine Art Findings at Countryside Farmers Markets at Old Trail School

During the winter months I take a bit of a break and only setup at the Countryside Conservancy indoor winter farmers market at Old Trail School. Twice a month they’ll have 50 or so vendors setup with vegetables from local greenhouses, honey, tea, cheese, bakeries and some art! Here’s my slide show from last year from my spot in the cafe – hope to see you there! https://www.facebook.com/carolyn.birchenall/videos/10210827888607764/

Art and Antiques: Dad’s Bottles and where to find them

Dad’s Bottles – Every weekend I setup at a market somewhere indoors or out, vintage or handmade, looking to meet people and find homes for my collections. Some of the items I upcycle and make them into something else, like my boxes and mirrors made from leftover picture frame moulding and the earrings and pendants made from broken jewelry. Some of the items are wonderful as they are and are just looking for new homes.  

Here we have a collection of vintage bottles collected by someone’s Dad. Aren’t they beautiful! I simply added lights to them, according to how the lids fit, so we have oil lamps, two different types of tiny light strings that run on watch batteries and even a simple light that charges on your USB port! Come to one of my shows to see them and let me know which is your favorite – a great father’s day gift idea, or to light up your patio!
