Featherstone Flea Market-Martha’s Vineyard

Well I’m still on the road foraging for fab vintage fashions and accessories for the website.  My search has recently taken me to the beautiful island of Martha’s Vineyard. (Got a hot tip from one of my sources that there was an estate with some vintage clothing to be had over here ) So, of course,  I jumped on the Woods Hole ferry as fast as I could!

While waiting to meet the  sellers,  I decided to pay a visit to the Featherstone Flea and Fine Art  Market in Oak Bluffs to poke around a bit.  Held on Tuesdays through August, it takes place at the Featherstone  Center for the Arts in Oak Bluffs.    There you can find an eclectic  selection of antique and vintage wares, clothing, artwork and jewelry in an idyllic country setting.

Picked up  some really cute hats from Gail Becker of  the Linen and Lace Studio.  Beside her lovely collection of hats, she also has lots of beautiful vintage linens.

Nancy Morris sells all kinds of interesting antiques and collectibles in her booth.  My favorite was the vintage dinnerware set with  various ships bordering the rims.  If  only I didn’t have too many dishes already,  these would have been going back to Fla with me! Oh, did I mention the whole set was a very reasonable $60.00?
