Brimfield Antique Show (aka Eye Candy)

This past weekend brought about a harbinger of summer in our neck of the woods.....Brimfield! If you love antiques, creative decorating ideas, hand crafted works or just a mega dose of people watching this is a good place to be. This year qualified on all these points for me.

Mr. was a trooper. We got there around 9:30 AM and did not leave until closing at 5PM.  This post will mainly be a  photo trip for you in case you couldn't make it there.

We saw the ladies from Vintage Thymes and were thrilled for them that they were picked over and had little left in their booth. It does not surprise me, though!

We saw a lot of vintage-y industrial stuff. I could just imagine them being used in an episode of Fixer Upper!

No idea what this base was originally for but loved the nod to local history.

No idea where you would put one of these!

A lighthouse lamp!

Just the back end of a bus! Many ideas that this could be turned in to!

and just because I'm warped liked that!
 There was plenty that appealed to my style... pretty, girly and/beachy stuff.

Love the color on this frame.

Blurry picture but really cool...... Mr. rolled his eyes AGAIN!

A lace teepee!

Chippy goodness!
 I met some new friends.....

New friends with a lovely booth.

The ladies at Carried Away Antiques did really well at the show! They were pretty cleaned out by the end of it all. If you like their style follow them of Facebook!

No idea what that says but love her legs!
Wouldn't you love this in a nursery!

Isn't that color fabulous!

More lovely things found

We found a few lovely things at Vintage Bazaar's booth. I brought home a shelf for the back porch. I will put a post about that soon.

Couldn't talk Mr. into this one.....yet!
We also made it home with something for the garden and a little table for the office/music room upstairs. That, of course, needs paint! That will be for another post.

    1. Thank you, Danielle, though I think it would be hard to take a bad photo there!
