The good people at Recovered Relics enjoy "getting our special items into the hands of the people who will cherish them." Recovered Relics buys, sells and repurposes collectible and unusual items from years past. They scout much of New England with a focus on Connecticut, Rhode Island and Vermont. While they will repurpose and sell pretty much anything and dig through any barn or crawlspace, they are particularly interested in objects related to transportation, vintage advertising, farm tools, architectural features, lighting, toys, furniture and period accessories. Sounds like their booth will be full! Check them out on Opening Day, June 2!
Vintage Flippers is a family team who consider themselves avid antique explorers and upcycled decor enthusiasts, offering Victorian furniture, musical instruments such as copper timpani drums and trumpets turned into lamps and coffee tables, unique mirrors and picture frames hand-painted, unique glass caddies and serving ware for entertaining, and the list goes on...! The 'Flippers' tell us they are inspired by "being able to creatively work together to find an old, dirty or hidden treasure amongst a field of products and turn it into our vision of something chic makes us happy." And we're happy if they're happy! Meet the Flippers at The Flea on June 2, July 7, and August 4!
Lynn McCarthy has been selling antiques and collectibles for over 20 years, mostly 1950s and 1960s home goods and women's vintage accessories. Lynn has been a dealer at the RI Antiques Mall for five years and recently decided to give up her booth. Her wares for The Providence Flea will include small treasures in her magic glass case, as well as a few pieces of mid-century furniture, pottery, glassware, jewelry, vintage cowboy boots and old postcards (not magic, per se, but similarly spectacular!).
See Lynn at The Flea on June 16!
