Aimee Song x Monica Botkier x Vintage Weekender

Planet Botkier May 31, 2012

Summer is a great time to go to antique fairs and shows. The Brimfield Antique Flea Market in Massachusetts is the ultimate inspiration mall for everyone. Aimee Song interior designer from Song of Style teamed up with Monica Botkier in search of stand out treasures that marked their style and personality. Equipped with the fashionable “hunting” sneakers, Botkier crossbody and enthusiasm the two set off on the antique hunting trail.

Flea markets may be overwhelming but with eyes on the bright middle eastern patterns, rustic housewares and a splash of water the ladies, once again, were ready to continue on the path.

Aimee strikes a pose with an antique doll house. The doll house is something old, Aimee Song is something new, and the Botkier LUCY shoulder is something blue.

Monica Botkier had her eyes on the prize with the help of interior designer Aimee Song! These two mirrors resemble a pair of vintage English chandelier earrings.

See some of our Treasure Hunt finds…

You can enjoy and indulge at June’s list of antique shows in the New York and Connecticut area like Monica Botkier and Aimee Song did. Let the boys have their day and ladies prepare for girl time on the antique adventure trail.

You will find anything from $2.00 scarves to tasteful home furnishings, so come prepared to expect the unexpected because you will find things you didn’t anticipate in finding.

After Monica Botkier’s antique show experience with Aimee Song, we have come up with a checklist of antique shopping must carry alongs to make your treasure hunt an easy and successful one.

STELLA tote to store your treasures

Comfy sandals or sneakers will keep you moving with ease

Bottle of water to keep the shopping engine running

Camera for those aha moments

Cash; trust that you will not leave without at least one item. And you never know if vendors accept cards.

HAPPY TREASURE HUNTING!
