Looking for something fun to do this weekend? Perhaps a little adventuring, exploring, and rummaging through shelves and piles of vintage goodies? Check out the Cambridge Antique Market! With over 150 antique dealers and 5 floors of merchandise including jewelry, furniture, lighting, accessories, vintage clothing, and collectibles, you’re sure to find something that interests you or brings back some fun memories!
My friend Tarryn lives in the neighborhood and has been telling me about the antique market for a while now so last week I went with her. Each room seems to be separated by different dealers, time periods, and styles. I found so many things I wanted to buy but living in a city apartment doesn’t allow for lots of extra stuff so I tried to behave myself
I love old cigarette and cigar boxes… They make really unique storage solutions. I keep all of my electronic cables in them.
This dresser was gorgeous! I often struggle with what kind of style I prefer. I love modern clean lines, vintage accessories, graphic bold prints… it will definitely be interesting to see what kind of decorating I do when I buy a house… It will for sure be an eclectic mix!
There were lots of old cooking supplies as well. The quality of these rolling pins was out of this world. SO heavy. They don’t make things these days like they used to!
The jewelry case that I gawked in for a good while. There were lots of reasonably priced jewelry but some of it was pretty pricey since it was the real deal!
Oh.my.goodness. Vintage post cards from all over the world. These would be perfect framed.
Comic books, anyone?
License plates. I only saw Ohio plates, though!
Little piggy on wheels
These clutches and handbags were delicious. I held on to the gold one for a while but ended up putting it down. Self control, baby!
Land O’Lakes recipe box… mmm, butter
There was a room filled with old sporting equipment
I have a serious thing for vintage typewriters. They’re so interesting and intricate. The khaki and turquoise/green-ish color combo really caught my eye.
This world map cracked me up… it reminded me of elementary school. I think every teacher struggled with trying to get these maps to go back up haha.
Remember the jewelry drawer I made a couple months ago? These plates and bowls would have been absolutely perfect to use, too!
This was the 80s/90s section…
Tarryn found a Debbie Gibson book. Haaaaaaay!
I really wanted this necklace… my wallet did not.
Tarryn loves the hats! And always make sure to stop and smell the flowers
Paymaster Ribbon Writer… crazy how far technology has come!
An old railing from Fenway Park. Perfect for a diehahhhd Sox fan!
There were so many options for funky storage. These wooden boxes were so sturdy.
My dad definitely used to have this lamp in his old home office. I think when he got a new one I put this one on my desk in my bedroom… I felt so professional So funny to see it here!
Check out this old school waffle maker!
Hello, Ernie cookie jar
Down in the basement of the antique market were lots of large prints… they also do framing!
If you’re in the market for a new bike you must check this space out. The Cambridge Antique Market has a full service bike shop in the basement and you’re encouraged to take your bike for a spin outside before purchasing. There were so many colors and styles of bikes and the gentleman working in the shop was very knowledgeable! I really want a bike… a yellow or turquoise one, which I didn’t see so I’ll just have to go back soon!
I ended up buying a Ball glass jar in the prettiest color for my bathroom… I’m thinking of putting cotton balls in it.
I also bought this stretchy gold coin belt. I’ve been in the market for a good gold belt to wear around dresses and tunics. I think it was $18… Wahoo!
If you’re looking for other antique markets in the area definitely check out Annelise’s post on the Rowley Antique Market! Tarryn and I are also planning on going to the Brimfield Antique Show this July! So much eye candy, so little time
Happy Friday… and Happy Mother’s Day!
