Sharing the Passion

What do you do when your collection begins to grow exponentially? For me, step into a new realm and sell some of them. November 24 and 25 In a Time Watches will be at the Olde Farmhouse Vintage Market with dozens of amazing vintage watches for sale.


This has been an interesting undertaking. I'm not quitting my day job, simply sharing my passion with others by providing an eclectic curated collection of accessible (not over the top expensive), working-person vintage mechanical watches. The collection generally consists of watches designed for the working class, suited for both men and women, and feature North American makers or watches that had Swiss made movements but were cased and marketed in North America. Watches from Hamilton, Elgin, Illinois, Bulova and Gruen from the 1920s through the 1960s are among those that will be for sale. 



For a preview of what will be available at the market, you can check out our Instagram or Facebook pages.

My wife and I at our vendors booth this past September
We've been to a couple of shows now. We're fine-tuning what we sell, getting a better understanding of peoples tastes, learning to merchandise and essentially growing our brand.  At our first shows we had success selling watches, met interesting people and talked to lots of people about watches and heard incredible stories about someones grandfather's or grandmother's vintage watch. 

Some of the watches being prepped for the market.


We hope you can join us in Abbotsford at the Tradex November 24 and 25. And the bonus, there's lots of other great vintage, up-cycled and repurposed items from over 100 vendors at the market.
