Brimfield Pics...Are You Ready?



Armed with my trusty GPS, some hard earned cash
 and lots of optimism and trust...
I found my way, all by myself, to the infamous
 Brimfield Antiques extravaganza.


Oh...I have been many times before...
...but this time I came alone and from a different direction.
And...let me reiterate...
all. by. myself.


So...what did I see?
A lot of treasure.
Did I take photos?
Oh yes..lots and lots.


Without further adieu...
...here are some of the sights I saw on my first day at Brimfield.















One of the best parts of my trip was meeting up with some
 wonderful gals that I know through blogging.
Jackie, of Bliss Farm Antiques and I have been chatting and
 following each others blogs for several years now.
 I was delighted to finally meet her in person as well as her
 charming husband Steve. Her booth was beautiful and full of
 wonderful French treasures that she personally sought out and
 found while traveling in France.

 so cool...




 

that color blue...




These tiny vials of watch parts were in Mary's booth
 of Vintage Inspired.
Her shop is located in Burlington, Vermont.
Mary was so nice to talk to and had a lot of interesting things. 
You know...my kind of stuff! 


Mary shared her booth at Brimfield
with Jessica from Willow House in South Burlington, Vermont.




Check out the elephant head drawer pulls...


...and doll head clocks!



...lots of industrial items...





While in this booth...a couple purchased this old wood ladder.


There were so many things to see...
...and I have lots more photos to share.

To be continued...
:)

so far, so good?

lovely market,I wish I can visit that place too=)

lisaroyhandbags said...

Thanks so much for taking us along with you! This is one market I want to get to some day - I would give up any vacation to rummage around there! And actually going alone I find can be the best thing - you can stay focused and find exactly what you're looking for without feeling like you are slowing anyone else down. :)

WOW Laura

Look forward to seeing what you cam home with

Vickie @ Ranger 911 said...

You had me from the very first photo. Oh, that little green car just hanging there! I'm supposed to be getting ready for work right now, but now I'll probably be late. I've got to go back and drool over all your photos. And there's more coming?!

Renee said...

I so wanted to go this year...I have been other years, but the dates didn't work out this time.I usually go up a day early to pick up my son from college, but he isn't coming home until next week and the drive is just too far for me to go twice. Love these pics because I'm now I'm traveling vicariously through you...keep them coming!

So far so very good. I don't even know what some of that stuff was or is, but I loved it all.

Kris said...

I have always wanted to go to Brimfield's. I heard about it several years ago but live to far away to make the trip. I can see there were loads of great items. I am partial to Bliss Farm Antiques because I am a Francophile and love French antiques.

I have a couple of the Frozen Charlotte dolls that I purchased a long time ago. They are so sweet!

I have to say you are a brave woman making that trip all by yourself! You should give yourself an "atta girl" pat on the back!

I visited Brimfield back in the 80s where I found an amazing convergence of unique items. Bring your walking shoes as it spans many open fields!

best,

Laura! Geez, I want so many of those goodies. Love the twines from Bliss Farm. And, all the garden goodies: cans, urns, planters :-)
If I went by myself, I'd buy wayyyyy too much, and get into all kinds of trouble. You have fun and behave, ok? Please share more photos! I'm seeing lots of garden items. Yay!!
