Last week this time, I was wandering the maze of tents known as the Brimfield Antique Show and Flea Market. I knew beforehand that this was a huge event, but somehow I still managed to be amazed at the sheer size. Brimfield is an easy drive from Boston, MA, and my friend D. invited a couple of us to come and stay at her house go with her to the Show. We decided to go Wednesday and Thursday, and the weather was, well... interesting. Wednesday's rain and chill meant we had layers of clothing, as well as rain gear on. Crowds were sparse, and I spent the day taking my gloves off and putting them back on. We all found some treasures and were well-pleased with our treasures. Thursday was sunny and hot,another wonderful dish friend joined us, and the crowds were massive.
Here we are at the start of our Thursday jaunt:
By the end of the day, we were a lot more wilted, but a stop for dinner and then Ben and Jerry's ice cream perked us right up! It's a tradition at my friend's house to pile each day's treasures on the dining room table and take a picture... Lots of goodies to admire.
