My Jeep Brim-eth Over

With Goodies I picked up this week on a visit to Brimfield! For those of you who aren't familiar with it, the Mother of All Antique Shows is held three times a year on several fields in Brimfield MA, right after Sturbridge on the Mass Pike. The May show continues through Sunday the 17th, and new fields open each day this week so there's plenty of fresh stock remaining to be had. GO CHECK IT OUT!

Took a jaunt out yesterday there with my Mom and we had a blast traipsing around looking at everything. I had the best intentions of taking pictures all day long but my Dinosaur of a Digital Camera weighs like 8 pounds so I left it in the car. Here's a shot as we were driving in to park:

When I'm shopping at a place like Brimfield I try to keep an eye out for the Cool and Unusual. I really do wish I had been able to photograph some of the crazy things I saw, but at least you can see some of what I DID come home with:

Found This for my Husband, whom I recently learned coveted all things Smurf when he was little (remember how EXPENSIVE that stuff was?) This morning I asked Kenny why it was posed on our kitchen island on a piece of aluminum foil and he replied "He's Tanning." FUNNY! I hope he had sunscreen on.

And what's THIS still lurking in my Jeep? A fab painted hutch I bought for my own kitchen but don't fret... that just means the piece I'm displacing is coming to Salvage Chic soon! Stay tuned.

Hey! It's been a while. Things seem to be going well for you. I wanted to go to Brimfield but things were so busy I missed it. Hopefully I can make the July Show. I hope to stop by Salvage Chic soon...are you guys still in the same location?
