My mom and I had such a nice time at the Brimfield Antique Show this week. We left on Tuesday morning and came home on Wednesday night and shopped till we dropped (and were covered in dust and dirt). I was mainly looking for interesting and unique pieces to put in my new space, and funky display pieces. We got tons, nut unfortunately I haven't gotten around to taking it all out of the bags and cleaning it all off, if only there were more hours in a day!

My mom and I were commenting on how much we love religious decor, maybe it's the Catholic in us...

I thought these would be perfect for rolled up throw rugs in my new shop!

pretty prints sold in Ikea frame, smart.

colored glass everywhere!

bright neon buoys, very 80's California and I love it


cutie mom

I <3 Pyrex

bought some nice gros grain for upholstery and pillows

I think these sailboats were my favorite piece of the whole show, made from found driftwood and vintage t-shirts. These will be sold in Shorely Chic :)

pretty sachets

pretty blues all in a row

I'm loving elephants lately

wishing I bought these horns.

I wanted this pair, but there were sold

Surf City!


  1. Marcy and I drove up together yesterday - just for the day - in her adorable little VW bug which helped to keep our purchases small! We missed you indeed. Looking through your wonderful photos I feel as though I am back in Brimfield today!

  2. This looks like a total blast. I live in the midwest, so it's so fun to see all the coastal stuff. Fun, fun.

  3. Gorgeous. Love the array of wonderful things. Such great one of a kind pieces. Love all the colored glass and also all the coral.

  4. My mouth is literally watering. The memaids! The depression glass! The driftwood! The tin tiles! Ah!!! Looks like my kind of antique show!


  5. Oh my goodness I don't think my account would have had a penny left in it!

    Looks like it was absolutely worth being covered in dirt for.

  6. WOW! What and awesome antique show. LOVE the mermaids, and floats, and the coral! Oh my :)

  7. I spy so many wonderful things!!!!
    Can't wait to see what you purchased for your shop!

  8. Oh many fabulous things! I would have been going crazy with excitement!!!!

  9. Looks like a ton of fun! My favorites are the "Estate Wagon" (though I'd have no idea what to do with it) and that gorgeous coral!

  10. Oh my golly crumpets I love everything! I so wish I was there to drool over every little thing!
    I cannot wait to see what you bought for the shop.
