TOF_postcard_Spring2015_FRONT_webTOF_postcard_Spring2015_BACK_webI am already so excited for May 30th to arrive!!  This spring, The Olde Farmhouse will have over 75 vendors with booths FULL of treasures for you.  You will have plenty of time to browse through all the booths, both inside the barns and out on the grassy field.  Take some time to grab some lunch, refreshments, and snacks so you are fueled up and ready to carry around all those amazing finds!!  And remember the rule…if you hesitate, the next shopper may grab that one of a kind item!! lol

 It is only a few days until THE OLDE FARMHOUSE VINTAGE MARKET!!!

I thought it would be a good idea to suggest some helpful tips for market day!  This may be your very first market or perhaps you are a market hopper…either way you need to be prepared for a fun day of JUNKING!!!

1.  Load up your family and friends!!  There is something for everyone at the market…and it’s always fun to shop with someone!!

2.  For all of you early birds…dress warmly! These winter days are chilly!  It doesn’t hurt to pack an umbrella, The Olde Farmhouse and rain seem to go hand in hand!!  Let’s hope for sunshine…but I know the junker’s mind….rain or shine you are coming for the treasures!!

3.  A large enough vehicle so you don’t have to leave a treasure or friend behind!!

4.  A measuring tape to make sure your item is a perfect fit!

5.  Re-usable shopping bags or a cart.  You need your hands free to shop (or to hold your morning coffee) !!

6.  CASH!!  Most vendors are cash sales only.  However, some vendors are now able to accept a credit card.

There will be an ATM on site in Barn #1 in case you need it!!

The Runway Café will once again be on site to help keep you going!!  They will be serving a variety of snacks and lunches &  hot and cold beverages.  Save your appetites so you have room for some of Eileen’s delicious food!!

For all of you non-shoppers, there is a covered picnic table area with some activities to pass the time while your loved one shops till they drop!!

Parking…it’s free and there is lots of it!!!  There will be some wonderful volunteers out there helping you to find a parking spot.  There is also an overflow parking lot at the corner of 105th Ave and Lougheed Hwy.  Just watch for the signs!!

A Step Back In Time

August 23rd, 2013 | Posted by Leah in Road Trips | Summer Fun | Vintage Market - (14 Comments)

This week I stepped back in time and  went to Burnaby Heritage Village….in Burnaby, BC.  I have decided yet again, that I love the 1920’s!!  The houses are just my style….with running water and electricity of course!! LOL!!  If you have never been to the village before, I would highly recommend you go!!  They have it set up like a small town, and you go into homes, stores, a school house, movie theatre, real estate office, barber shop, ice cream parlor, post office, etc.  They also have a trolly to walk through and a carousal for the kids (and adults) to ride!!

Here are some pictures that I took along the way….

Isn’t this the cutest house??  It was originally built on this site in the 1920’s and was deemed quite fancy as it had electricity and indoor plumbing.

IMG_0117

I love all the built in cabinets in the dining room and living room!  This was considered a formal dining room.  The men had to wear a suit and tie, dresses for the woman and  the children had to wear their best clothes to eat dinner in this room.

What a bright and cheery bathroom!!

The wood table, chair and counter look so nice in this white kitchen.

Don’t forget to stop into The Ice Cream Parlor for a cool treat!!

Walking through all the shops and homes in Burnaby Village has gotten me so excited for The Olde Farmhouse Vintage Market!!!  I can not wait to see what wonderful treasures all the vendors are bringing with them!!  I know for sure that I will be doing some shopping myself, to add to my favorite collections at home.  Do you have a collection of something at home?  What will you be shopping for on September 28th??
