Ah Brimfield, that magical event that happens 3 times a year in Brimfield Mass. The largest outdoor antiques show in the us, aka heaven only an hour away. On Friday, I played hooky from the 9to5 (and by played hooky, I really mean worked lots of extra hours earlier in the week so that I could take the day off without taking a vacation day) so I could join my parents treasure hunting for the day. I always go into Brimfield thinking about the car-full of all the amazing finds I'll be bringing home with me and I only end up with a few things in the end. There are so many amazing (and some not so amazing and/or really bizarre) things packed into such a dense space, it's hard to appreciate everything individually. Here are some images to help you imagine:
The treasures that I came home with were:
Vintage fan for $20.
Plastic Marquee "G" for $4
and my splurge at $45 was this cut-glass bowl
The bowl was one of the first things that caught my eye in the morning, but I didn't buy it then. After thinking about it all day, luckily it was still there when I went back.
Did you find any wonderful treasures over the weekend?
