Brooklyn Flea - Skillypot - Where is Paco?

Tincan Trading Post - Spartan / Yellowstone

Hi all. I'll spare you the gory details of this long cold winter, and jump to the news about happily surviving it and getting back into the market this season to show and sell our newest treasures.

In addition to the original Trading Post in our 1952 Spartan and 1964 Yellowstone travel trailers.
We have several new "Tincan Trading Outposts" this year to tell you about.

These Outposts are in established antique shops.
This is a fantastic opportunity to showcase special items and rare finds.
I am very lucky to have certain friends that helped make this happen.
Thanks LOK / Thanks CK.
The first spot is in Callicoon NY - the grooviest town on the Delaware river and home to the Tractor Parade each June, a farmer's market all summer, great restaurants and shops and several smart antique and vintage stores, cheese / wine shops, and a Deco movie theater, and a bowling alley - both in vintage Quonset huts. This is the town used in the movie "Transamerica". So come visit. Have fun.

This shop is run by Chris (aka Paco) who ran the Garage Sale spot last year but now has a big beautiful store. Open year round. Chris is known for the best deals on the best stuff in all of Callicoon. Very cool guy!
Ask him to show you the Tincan Trading Post showcase.

Our second spot is over on the Hudson in Kingston NY. I've always been interested in this town because it has some incredible houses that come up on real estate searches. It is also relevant and historic on many levels. I'm looking forward to being there more and getting to know it.

This fantastic shop is run by Sue Schecter a veteran Hudson Valley antique dealer and shop owner! We are proud to be filling the windows with primitives, textiles, vintage clothes, mid century furniture and lots of lamps, art and "one-of-a-kinds". There are a dozen unique vendors in addition to Sue's collection in this big shop in the historic Roundout section.


And we are glad to be back in Brooklyn at;

The Brooklyn Flea in Ft. Greene.
We'll be there every other week (sort of) for the season.

I just got back from the opening day in Ft. Greene.
The Brooklyn Flea is popping.
It was packed! Fun cute and groovy folks.
A good start to a great season.
Thanks Rob / Eric.
