I am always falling down rabbit holes. This morning I spent an hour on Facebook looking at the photographs posted by At the Farm LLC. Then I decided to go there. It is located at 5501 Bartell Road, Brewerton, New York 13029, and is a twenty-plus vendor antique shop. Currently, you will find a lot of Easter related items – bunny molds, cookie cutters, stuffed bunnies, ceramic eggs, baskets, etc.
It was a surreal experience, as there were so many incredible treasures to see and so many things that I totally already own. I saw an identical copy of my great-grandfather’s black GE oscillating fan.
And this glass lemonade pitcher. Its doppelganger and Poplu’s fan are on the front porch of my home.
And my mother has that small Shirley Temple blue-glass pitcher. Even though I had never been there before, the place felt so familiar. I loved it there! The cool thing about taking so many pictures is that when I go back through them, I see things on the shelves that I don’t remember seeing. Cool things that I want to own.
Is collecting vintage items still a thing? Do younger generations do this? They must. Because even though it’s best to live in the present moment and all, nostalgia never dies. Things turn to thoughts of the past and they usually trigger fond memories. I love going to flea markets and antique stores because I always feel like I’m being directed or drawn to something, like the universe needs me to find it – to find the memories. So amazing. This makes me smile.
I’m not sure if they will be open tomorrow because of Easter Sunday but they are usually open Saturdays and Sundays 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM and also Wednesday through Friday noon – 5:00 PM. Call (315) 668-8800 for the deets.
