Two or three times a year, the Pettengill Farm holds a Vintage Bazaar, a collection of high quality, vintage-inspired handmade items and "antiques." There's plenty to pick through for DIY-ers, too, stuff like old buttons, beads, drawer handles, marquee letters, paper ephemera--that kind of thing.
I looked for paraphernalia I could use for my diorama series, old movie scenes done in crochet. In particular, I've been searching for a small, black train that would fit in the scene I'm working on from Some Like it Hot. I found this little gem in a box of old trains:
Sugar: I come from this musical family. My mother is a piano teacher and my father was a conductor.
Joe: Where did he conduct?
Sugar: On the Baltimore and Ohio.
And, as if that didn't make me happy enough, in the next booth I found another perfect item for a scene I'm planning from another movie. That, and sunshine, fresh air, real lemonade, and bumping into old friends, made it a wonderful day!
