Shop: Avenue C at Eastleigh Farm

I love to go treasure hunting on the weekends. It all started when I was a little girl and my mom taught me how to tick through every hanger at TJ Maxx to find the hidden gems within the sea of racks. As I've gotten older, my interest has shifted from clothes to furniture, glassware, decor, and art work. I'm a regular at the Crompton Collective in Worcester, MA, and this fall I made my first trip to the Brimfield Antique Show, an outing I plan to make an annual tradition. 

Right before Christmas, my aunt and cousins introduced me to a new place to treasure hunt, Avenue C at Eastleigh Farm in Framingham, MA.

The shop is located on a historic dairy farm. I've been told they serve ice cream in the summer, but on the day we visited, there were no frozen treats to be found. 

When you come up the steps, you use your full body weight to push the bright blue doors to the left, and enter the shop.

We we walked in, I took one look around the front room and declared, "I already love it here." 

Come with me on a walk around the shop. 

The first thing I noticed was this beautiful sewing table. It would be gorgeous in an entryway, hallway or even a spacious bathroom.

On the corner of the sewing table, I noticed this owl. The dish would be ideal for keys or earrings.

Of course I had to sniff every single one of these Brookfield Candle Company scents - pumpkin pie, apple jack & peel, pumpkin marshmallow, banana nut bread and pumpkin sugared donuts.

I found them to be way too sweet, but if you normally like the Yankee Candle sugar cookie scent, you'll want these. 

These tea cup candles were giving me Alice in Wonderland vibes. I was picturing them down the center of my dining room table for a ladies brunch.

I loved the creative use of this ladder for staging.

On the opposite wall, this shelf was arranged with all kinds of goodies.

How cool are these bookends? They are irons!

The bunny bookends are so sweet. They would be adorable in a nursery.

I almost bought this cork pouch with lobsters on it. I thought it could be fun for my summer beach bag to hold my keys, phone and ice cream truck money.

Next, I strolled by my favorite section of any shop - the stationary.

I seriously contemplated buying these Happy New Year cards.

Around the corner, I was enchanted by this booksellers sign. I have zero practical use for it, but I wanted it.

I also found myself drawn to these clocks.

In a cozy corner at the back, you could touch the softest scarves and gloves you will ever encounter in your life.

Next to the scarves, I found these very sweet picture frames. I have several pieces of bird-themed art work and decor in my house, so I was magnetized towards this trio.

I found more stationary (yay!) and this time I couldn't resist. I bought two packages of cards - one with old school print advertisements on them, and one with photos of classic diner cars.

I also scored this Trisha Shaw watercolor, which I am going to hang next to the closet in my bedroom.

Across the room, this set up was transporting me to a more tropical place with all of the greenery.

I found a corner with some handmade jewelry, including a glass hand for rings (I already own one just like this in blue).

I continued to be amazed by all the clever staging of these shelves.

Just under this one, I found these cool leather notebooks that say, "Go your own way." This would be a thoughtful gift for someone about to start a new career or embark on a bucket list trip.

There were so many cute kitchen signs. As a Diet Snapple enthusiast, the ice tea one caught my eye.

After a full lap through the front room, we made our way towards the visiting vendor area, which is in the dairy farm's old bottling room. 

Just before we walked in, we saw the owner had put out apple cider, gingerbread cookies and candy canes for visitors. Such a warm, welcoming touch.

Our visit was on December 23, so the vendors were still in full Christmas mode. 

I'm on a never-ending quest for the perfect holiday card, and I really liked this one.

I thought these would make a lovely holiday hostess gift.

This bird habitat garden would be a fun thing to set up with a niece or nephew.

I flipped for these dog breed posters! My aunt was thumbing through a few and looked over to me and asked, "What kind of dog is Scout again?" We triple checked, but they didn't have any S for Shepherd prints.

In the very back of the space, down a short hallway, is an area with vintage items. The cupcakes ornaments caught my eye.

There was also a tree of Scottie dog ornaments!

Of course I managed to find more stationary, this time vintage postcards.

With my arms full of scores, I headed toward the register. It was at the counter that I noticed Celia's Handmade Soap.

Naturally, I sniffed all of them, ultimately deciding to take home the cucumber melon scent, which smells so fresh and clean, just like stepping out of the shower. 

At the register, I got to meet the owner, Suzanne Caso, who stages everything in the shop herself. She has such a great eye. 

A huge thanks to my aunt and cousins for taking me to Avenue C at Eastleigh Farm. I am confident this was just the first of many more visits!
