I thought I had a clue of just how big Brimfield is, but I was totally overwhelmed and thrilled to actually experience it! Dad and I did a basic overview of the event- taking 5 hours to quickly go through only about 1/2 the booths. There was a lot of crap- but also a TON of amazing items, and I’m sure even more that we did not get to see. But I am now fully prepared to go back in July or September- armed with running sneakers, backpacks, sunscreen, power bars and possibly 2 days committed to seeing everything. I highly recommend that anyone interested in antiques try to make it up there for a day! I could have filled an entire store full of great stuff if only I had an unlimited budget…that always seems to be my problem! :)
I picked up a couple of good things, as did Dad. Here are some pics of our day!
An awesome, huge chest for the severely OCD and a gorgeous whitewashed cabinet with chickenwire inset (enlarge to see).
