We're headed to Brimfield this weekend and we couldn't be more excited. Don't know what Brimfield is all about? Here's all you need to know:
The Brimfield Antiques Show began in the 1950's and has become the largest and best-known outdoor antiques show in the country. Running along Rt. 20 for a distance of perhaps a half-mile and perhaps 500' or more, back on each side of the highway, the Brimfield Show is a huge, vast undertaking, filled with thousands of dealers dealers over the course of the week, selling everything from the finest antiques to 'yard junk', requiring a day or two to see everything there is to see. Food courts and rest facilities abound, and the Shows are filled with hidden treasures and the 'right kind of people', creating a safe and fun environment for everyone, children included.So, yeah. Need we say more? The Show kicked off on Tuesday, so we'll be there for the tail end of it all. While I'm sure we're going to miss out on some terrific treasures by going later, we find that you get a lot more deals when the vendors are packing up. Why? Because they don't want to haul their goods back home with them. Let's hope this strategy works out for us. We'll be back next week - hopefully with a large Etsy shop update to work on!
