What is better than a day in an enormous hot, dusty, field surrounded by antiques. For me not much….sad but true. I love going to the Brimfield Antique Show in May. It never lets me down and as my friend who went with me noted, you feel like you are apart of something bigger that yourself. There were license plates on cars from all over the country. People strolling around and enjoying the day or others completely on the hunt and in a rush to find it.
I was looking mainly for large pieces of art to hang in the cape house, nautical pieces, books, and anything that caught my eye. I found some great stuff that I am really happy with. Brimfield always leaves you with good stories, like the porter we hired to help us with an unwieldy piece of art. He reminisced with us about his stripper mom’s beautiful blue eyes. He continued further down that path of conversation about stripper anatomy but I will spare you the details. My friend and I found a large sum of money on the ground. We waited around to see if we saw anyone in a panic looking for their money. We also notified the front office and left my information. Hopefully we will hear from that person. I will keep you updated. Here are some of fun, funky and beautiful things we saw at the show.
It was a hot and very crowded day. We definitely did not get to as many tents and fields as we wanted to go to. Here are a few of the things I ended up grabbing.
So that is it for my field trip to Brimfield. I had such a great time hunting and laughing the whole time! The show is open all weekend. Go early and stay late.
Monday I will be posting some major changes and updates for the cape house renovation. Big happenings!! For all you renovation photo lovers out there will be some major reno porn for you! Have a great weekend!
