A Day of Brimfield Finds

This week is the Brimfield Flea Market, in Brimfield MA, with its acres of possibilities there is something for everyone. Thomas and I went on Tuesday which was the opening day and managed to get there by six AM. What an experience for a first timer like myself. It was cold and wet from massive amounts of rain and seemed like half the vendors skipped the first day, but then so did most of the attendees. After slogging through muddy fields in drizzle here are a few of the things that caught my eye. Thankfully we took the car which prevented acquiring many new pieces, however next spring…

Scotty fireplace andirons, I don’t have a dog but a pair of these could work instead.
This Dolphin head painted table was really beautiful and well priced from Love Train Antiques.

With winter coming, this six foot long planter could have really come in handy for wintering over plants and starting seedlings next spring. Not to mention the wonderful patina of the painted finish. 

 These terrific chairs are so chic and seem like they would be very comfortable once they had cushions. The dealer wanted $85.00 for pair - seemed like a deal.

These Zanesville individual casseroles made me think of piping hot soupe a l’oignon with a think crust of melted gruyere. It also could have been the fact that I was freezing and wet when I saw these.

 This Paine wicker sofa, is as they say, the one that got away. Immediately when I saw this I had a flash of inspiration of it filled with pillows made form my Fretwork, Charlotte and Ashley fabrics in string, chocolate and absinthe.  Maybe next year.
