Even though I’ve been 5 times now, the Brimfield Antique Show never ceases to amaze me. I always think I’m mentally prepared, but it’s always the same full on sensory overload. As soon as I step into the field my head is on constant swivel.
Yesterday the May 2013 show kicked off and it was one of the most crowded I’ve been to yet. It seems that each time the crowd is a little younger each time, which is exciting! I’m so happy to see the show growing in popularity.
I also picked up quite the collection of bottles. It’s fun to mix and match what you find from different vendors and I thought the light sea foam greens and blues were nice for summer. My favorite is the Marmalade jar which will be used as a small vase or pen/pencil holder. Isn’t it incredible to see something 1862?
There were A LOT of wire baskets at this show and I wanted all of them to come home with me. I settled for this small egg basket, which is a really sweet size and was reasonably priced. Who knew baskets were so expensive?
I didn’t want Kyle to be left out, so I scouted a gift for him too. From a pile of small gold mental letters I spelled out a word that’s right up his alley 🙂 I’m thinking about mounting them onto a board or something that can be hung in the kitchen.
Of course I’m a little biased, but I think all of my finds look quite nice together! The thrill of the hunt is so much fun and Brimfield is definitely worth a trip if you live in the New England area.
I’ve heard from quite a few of you that you’re headed out to the show on Friday or over the weekend. I’d LOVE to do a round up post featuring your finds so please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org or tag your instagrams with #Brimfieldfind.
