Brimfield Antique Show

Brimfield Antique Show

I am back and mostly recovered! Over the past week my brother and I have been vendors for the first time at the Brimfield Antique Show. The show is the largest and oldest outdoor antique show in the country. It is about 2 miles long on route 20 and about 1/4 mile back on each side of the road. Imagine that then imagine it bigger! We have been going to Brimfield shopping for many years and last September decided we could do this! So we went for it! And I am so ecstatic that we did.

Brimfield and Candy and Courtney from Storage Wars NY

Two days later and I am still feeling the effects of Brimfield, achy legs and shoulders, but it was worth it! I am very excited about some of the items I got and have already started working on some new projects on Sunday. 

Everytime I go to Brimfield I am always surprised by the array of prices. Some dealers are very high priced where others are very reasonably priced. It all depends where they are located in the market. My best advice is not to shop close to the street or at the beginning of the antique market. You want to spend most of your time in the back of the lots. That is where the deals are.

Fall and Brimfield

I woke up this morning and had to put a sweatshirt on….it’s official summer is over. It’s weird because I haven't felt this way the past two years. Being a northern transplant in the south there was not much of a difference between Summer and Fall but back in New England I feel the weather starting to change, I can even smell the difference in the air.
