Found in Ithaca is another fun vintage store. I follow them on Facebook. Today I finally visited the store – I drove down from Syracuse and my friend Joyce drove up from Binghamton. We met there at around noon.
It is a multi-vendor situation with about 7,000 square feet of space. So much to see.
A lot of jewelry and decor items plus furniture.
One vendor had a bunch of Mexican Milagro pieces. They are said to carry good luck/miracle energy! We loved these.
Found in Ithaca is open Wednesday- Sunday 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.

If I had to pick a recurring theme in the shops, I’d go with the bird motif.
I also came across a bunch of these school bells. I wanted them all. I kept picking them up, ringing them and saying, “I wonder how many times this happens in a day?” Joyce said something like, “Probably a lot.” I guess it would get annoying pretty quickly if I had a collection of bells. Everybody and their uncle would want to ring them.
It’s always a great day when you see blue glass.
Vintage clothing and accessories? Yes and yes.
The vendors are always on the hunt to find treasures to resell. This is definitely one of those places you must frequent. In fact, once I’d returned home, I checked their Facebook page and noticed several items I’d seen in the shop had been sold, mainly the furniture pieces.
I guess you should go in with an idea of what you are looking for then enjoy the serendipitous experience infused with nostalgia of finding it, something like it or something else that lurks in your vortex of material wants and desires. I ended up finding some leather remnants for my jewelry business. I’m not currently making bracelets and I didn’t need more supplies, but the price was right, so, yeah. You just never know what you will find. So fun!
