I went to my first Brimfield antique show last week, and WOW what an experience! It was ginormous! It was extremely difficult for me to not want to look at everything all at once – event though that was impossible. Tent’s were set up in huge fields alongside a mile-long stretch of Rte. 20.
We were treasure hunting for 7 fun-filled hours and we still only saw about half of it. The show had a lot of everything – from rescued factory shelving and tables to handmade jewelry. We saw tents full of galvanized buckets and rusty shop signs to repurposed lighting and primitive furniture. It really was overwhelming – it a good way.
We probably walked 30 miles that day weaving in and out of the fields and trucking purchases back and forth to the car. Then we proceeded to drive the 8.5 hours home to Virginia. Next year I plan on making this a two-day event!
