I made my list, set my budget, lathered myself in sunblock, donned my straw beach hat and comfortable walking shoes, grabbed my sunglasses, folding rolling cart and water bottle and headed to the largest outdoor antiques show in the country – the Brimfield Antiques Show.
Brimfield week is quite an experience with 23 fields filled with over 5,000 dealers. It can be a little overwhelming at times hence my list and budget. There are lots of fields that have free admission and then there are some premium fields that require an admission fee of around $5.00. There is definitely something for everyone at the show. I came home with a water color painting ($25), round mahogany end table ($50), orange Pyrex bowl ($10), and a vase ($8) that reminded me of the Anthropologie flower vases. I stayed under my $100 budget and was happy with my purchases.
The Brimfield Antiques Show takes place three times a year. The next show dates are July 9 – 14, and September 3 – 8.
