My Brimfield List

One day I look forward to each year is the Spring Run of the Brimfield Antique Market here in Massachusetts. It is FILLED with anything you could possible think of and things you might not even want to think of. It is like one big treasure hunt and I love every minute. Weeks before I walk around the apartment inspecting each room for things that are not quite working or something that needs a bit of a redo than list these items in hopes of finding them at Brimfield!

This year I have a nightstand, something to use as a file cabinet, a big bubble water pitcher, a piece of authentic fiesta ware for a newly engaged lady and of course my favorite; table linens for me and Mom!! Yes it is quite a list but I am so excited to see what I find! It's also the only morning of the year I gladly jump out of bed at 5am!

With all this Brimfield talk I thought I would post a few inspiration pictures. Even if you are not going to Brimfield these are great pieces to find in your own local flea markets.

Lydia! We will be there on Thursday just as Mays opens. DM me your number again and maybe we can meet for some lemonade! Are you looking for similar colors to the fabric you sent me the other day? I will keep my eyes open for you.
