Open Market At Tiverton 4 Corners -
"Located within a one hour drive of Boston, Providence, Newport, and the towns of Southeastern Massachusetts, Tiverton Four Corners has become an important center for antiques, fine art, decorative crafts, and cozy shops nestled into a quaint New England Village of 18th century buildings. Enjoy the fresh air as you walk the few steps between shops to peek in windows, sample gourmet treats and purchase quality goods of all kinds in an unhurried, friendly and charming atmosphere." (from their own website) Tiverton 4 Corners is in Tiverton Rhode Island.
This summer the local Farmer's Market has moved to Tiverton 4 Corners and across the street from it on the lawn under beautiful shade trees - something new is happening. On selected Saturdays an Open Market is taking place - offering quality antiques & collectibles - china, glassware, silver, rugs, furniture, vintage clothing, garden items and much more. On some Open Market Saturdays craft and art venders join the festivities.
Yesterday Holly Lane Antiques participated in this wonderful new event at Tiverton 4 Corners. This Open Market concept reminded us of when we participated in the SOWA Sundays in Boston. Much closer to home for us this market - still in its infancy - has such potential beginning with a perfect location and a dedicated promoter.
We decided to feature our Early English White Ironstone with a blue and white themed booth. Our beautiful blue hydrangeas provided our inspiration. Adding a large selection of antique blue transfer ware carried out the blue theme.
Holly Lane Antiques will be at the Open Market whenever our busy summer schedule of Antiques Shows allows. Future Open Markets are scheduled for August 6 & 20, September 3rd and October 8th.
Just look at these beautiful peppers I found at the Farmer's Market - they almost do not even look real!
Many of the items pictured are available for purchase at our internet stores.
