If you haven't had the pleasure of attending the Brimfield Antique Show, I highly recommend that you do.
For years I have wanted to check out the show and this year I finally made the drive out to the small town of Brimfield, MA. I had high expectations and they were certainly met. On the hunt for props for upcoming photo shoots, I made sure not to bring my larger car, fearing that I would want to head home with more than I needed. The show is so overwhelming. A town that is home to roughly 3,000 residents balloons to over 250,000 visitors and over 5,000 dealers during the 6 days that the show is open. There is something there for everyone, from large furniture pieces to small and inexpensive postcards. And if you do attend, don't forget to hit up Faddy's Donuts for the most scrumptious things you ever did eat.
There are still two more chances to check out the show this summer: July 12 - 17 & September 6 - 11.
