Tom Nault loves antiques and collectibles and he's no newbie to the flea market scene, having first attended markets with his parents when he was just 10 years old. "I can't not go," Tom tells us today. "It is pure joy for me to be there."
We like Tom because he has great pickings...and because Tom likes the Flea. In fact, when he gushes, we blushes! "Great stuff, delectable food, sweet people, good times on the Providence waterfront... Why wouldn't I want to come back?"
Tom doesn't come often, but when he does, he doesn't disappoint. You won't want to miss his eclectic collection of vintage jewelry molds, science lab beakers and bunsen burners, ceramic sculptures, antique furniture and furnishings, and downright fantastic finds.
Check out Tom's latest at the Flea on Opening Day from 10 am-4 pm on June 7. We never know when he'll be back!
Betty Daigle of Country Squire Antiques in Fall River (yes, 'that' Betty!) is coming the Flea with enough merch to fill a double-wide space this Sunday! Featuring refurbished New England, Early American furniture, Betty also carries a large assortment of early americana, cast iron, glass and china. (We're so anxious with anticipation we're in a cold sweat as we type this!)
Betty told us, "I love bringing things back to life, whether it be from many years of distress or taking something that no longer has any use, such as early farm items...and turning them into tables, benches...with lots of character and charm." If this gorgeous piece is any indication, Betty has cornered the market on antique TLC. Only on Sunday, October 27, and only at The Flea!
