Things I Love: Cambridge Antique Market

John and I have been brainstorming a home project for a week or so and were stuck on which type of materials to use. After going back and forth about it we thought maybe an antique store would have what we were looking for (no spoilers, you’ll see in a follow up post!). It’s so true that everything old is new again.

I searched Yelp for local antique markets thinking I would find the closest one to be in New Hampshire. I was beyond excited when I realized there is one in Cambridge, less than 3 miles from our house!

The whole place was incredible. There are 5 floors all packed with antique treasures.

The basement floor was a bike workshop! So cool. Tons of bikes, accessories, and a whole work area down there for repairs and tune ups.

I could have spent hours here. We found what we were looking for pretty quickly so it was a short trip. We’ll definitely be back though.

It’s so awesome to take a chance on an adventure and find amazing things right in your own backyard.

Here’s a sneak peek on the project I mentioned above. This is what we bought:

Any guesses????

Are you an antique lover? Where are your favorite places to shop for them?

    Thank you for the heads up. I will have to check it out. This is nice for winter days when Brimfield and Todd Farm seem so far away. Although spring is almost here. I am so excited to see your project. Love your home decor.

    I was into your blog when you were doing more cooking/health/fitness stuff vs. home decor/travel!

      It’s all in equal parts, I assure you. I plan out every entry so the content is even.
      But I hope you stick around because I’ll have some great recipe blogs after this weekend.

  4. That Singer sewing machine is BEAUTIFUL! You should go snatch it up if it works (anything under $200 is reasonable, if it works), they’re such user friendly machines. I love mine, it does just what I need it to and it’s always my fault if it does. I love being able to fix it on my own too.

    Found your blog while searching for recipes (I knew I was in store for some good things when you had an entire section dedicated to bacon), but I definitely love your decorating ideas as well. If you’re into antiques, I would HIGHLY recommend the Remarkable Cleanout warehouse in Norwood…it seriously had anything you could ever dream of. It was only about a 20 minute ride from where I am in Quincy, so I would imagine it wouldn’t be much further for you depending on where you are in the city. There are also four or five other little antique shops in that cluster of warehouses, so it’s definitely worth the trip!
