Brimfield Adventure

The Brimfield antique show is the largest in New England and draws dealers from all over the country. It's held three times a year in May, July and September. July is typical the slowest month but we still managed to find plenty of good stuff on Sunday.


Buttons, notions and rick rack - oh my!


Pretty painted furniture


Beautiful jadite dishware


And a few conversation pieces.



Since I live in a small space I tried not to do too much shopping but a few things did manage to find their way home with me....


That's a vintage scarf box (perfect to hold my growing collection of Vera Neumann scarves), yet another Vera scarf, and elephant ring holder, a sweet vintage curtain valance with pom pom fringe for my kitchen and a hand-pieced quilt top. Not a bad haul for less than $40.

Oooooh, looks like a trip worthy of a drive from ME! Did I spy a bag of kettle corn? You could leave me among the painted furniture with a bag of that and I be happy as a clam! Great photos!

Good stuff, and I think I recognize that person in the land shark's mouth... The kettle crack was a dead giveaway.

It wasn't mine - I swear. I was holding the kettle crack for a friend, officer.
