Brimfield is Back!

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s that time of year again! The first of the three Brimfield Antique Shows of the season is kicking off tomorrow and I can’t wait to do some exploring. If you’re unfamiliar, Brimfield is the largest outdoor antique show in the country. Thousands of vendors set up in a one mile stretch of field in the small town of Brimfield, MA.

There’s a little bit of everything at Brimfield and it’s overwhelming the first few times that you go. The helpful thing is that vendors are usually in the same spot each time, so once you get a feel for the ones you like — you can make a beeline for them.

The show kicks off tomorrow on May 14th and runs through Sunday May 19th. Personally, I enjoy taking a day off from work to go since weekdays tend to be much quieter than the weekends….but the weekends are great for casually browsing!

This show I’ll be looking for smaller items – croquet balls so I can make more of these babies, old camp lanterns, and maybe a milk glass vase or two. Kyle will officially kill me if I come home with anything bigger than a vase. I’ll be back later in the week to {hopefully} share some of my Brimfield treasures!

Happy Hunting!
