Vintage Thymes today announced that it is hosting its 3rd annual vintage and artisan marketplace at Adams Farm in Walpole. The company and its partner, Vintage Shade of Grey, are bringing together vintage dealers and artisans in a two-day event that will feature live music, food and one-of-a-kind finds on the sweeping grounds of the 365-acre farmstead.
The Marketplace at Adams Farm will showcase more than 40+ vendors selling items such as re-purposed treasures, vintage and painted furniture, up-cycled finds, jewelry and handmade bags. Additionally, some of the best vintage, curated collections and junktiques will be on offer.
“We are excited to gather the finest of New England’s vintage dealers and artisans all in one beautiful location for our 3rd annual event featuring two days of vintage shopping and treasure hunting,” said Nancy Murphy, co-owner of Vintage Thymes. “We have, again, hand-picked the top vendors for this market and expect it to attract thousands of collectors, buyers and lovers of all things yesteryear.”
In addition to vintage treasures, furniture-painting demonstrations will be presented. The marketplace will feature comfort food from Le Petit Café, and will showcase a host of talented musical acts, including The Oysters, a Cape Cod based band with a love of rock ‘n roll, classic rock, rockabilly, country rock, and pop rock, and Kat, an R & B artist.
