Vintage Thymes, the amazing, monthly, themed market, known for its creative dealers and ever-changing treasures has found a new home. From its beginnings in a barn Nov.2007, in Millis, to its most recent space in a 1000 sf shop in Medfield, Vintage Thymes journey has taken them to their new, exciting location in Norwood, Massachusetts, at WinSmith Mill Market. After months of searching, Robin Hanlon & her new business partner the talented & creative Nancy Murphy proprietors of Vintage Thymes learned of an old mill building in Norwood and were certain this was to be the next antique shopping destination. Although charming, it was nothing short of a dump inside! Junk had accumulated in the space along with 100 years of dirt! The creative minds behind Vintage Thymes saw the potential this venue had to offer. The lease was signed and they were dreaming of vintage, chippy, shabby goods filling every corner.
The work gloves went on, power tools were plugged in, the power washer rented and the painting began! The results are remarkable! The space is open and airy, boasting terrific natural light, fresh paint and space for over 20 plus talented dealers, with a workshop in the back, all in a warehouse, industrial setting.
We celebrated our soft opening in September of 2012, drawing crowds, old and new. One customer was overheard saying, "Wow this is huge, I could spend a whole day here". Our Grand Re-opening, in November, with raffles, refreshments and some wonderful entertainment led by singer/songwriter Liz DeBiase was enjoyed by all. Vintage Thymes greatest passion is combing through basements, attics & garages in search of those hidden treasure that makes our heart skip a beat…time worn goods that tell a story! Vintage Thymes monthly market has been on the antique/re-cycle, re-purpose radar for several years now. Our shop is not just another antique store.
