Fantastic Trip to Brimfield

This week a few of the Shop Girls, and some husbands, went to Brimfield.   The weather was beautiful and the spirits were high.   Here are some pics of some of the sights.

This is John, Nancy's husband, taking a breather and holding one of their finds. 

The people from this booth were from Alabama.  They had some great displays.  This is actually a vintage chicken feeder holding some ironstone platters.  I bought some old feeders that are now in my booth holding some beautiful plates.

Vintage dress forms are getting harder and harder to find.  Here are some beauties.

Corrabelle Rose, Donna Corrs from Michigan, was there.  If you get Romantic Country, you will remember her in Issue No. 112, this past summer.  http://www.corrabellerose.blogspot/  I took a lot of pictures in her beautiful booth.  I actually bought a small shabby metal cart from her.  It is going to be a wonderful addition to a half bath, holding towels and vintage powder tins.

This was a great old cupboard that Corrabelle Rose had in her booth.

Architectural salvage is so big in Brimfield.  This was a huge piece.  I could see it being used as a head board in someones bedroom.

Jan LaVoie from Painted Prettys in CT, had some great Shabby Chic pieces.  I ended up buying a great big old Shabby Chic farm table from her and her friends.  Can't wait to put in my kitchen. 

There's Jan's reflection in the mirror of this wonderful green vanity.

Ornate upholstered burlap furniture was everywhere.  This great couch was being worked on.  Wish I had the room for this beauty. 

These old factory carts were very popular.  People are using them for coffee tables.  What a great look.
I hope you have enjoyed all the pics.  This was one of the best trips to Brimfield that I have ever had.  I went with my friend Donna, and met up with some other Shop Girls, Karen K. and Nancy D. for lunch.  I also saw Wanda from White Home Collection.  The displays and the ideas that you get from Brimfield are unforgettable.  Even if you don't buy a lot, the experience is unbelievable.

Mary Ellen - great to see you at Brimfield! Great pics - they make me VERY sorry I had no time to shop more - bummer! I was just spelling Susan for the afternoon and selling a few things but then had to come back home that evening. Sounds like you got some great things and took some great inspirational pics!
