brimfield fun and friends

While I am off to NYC for Blogfest2011, I will leave you with some of the fun and often silly finds from Brim­field. Brim­field was crazy crowded, a nice change from recent years where buy­ers were thin on the ground. The Tweetup was a huge suc­cess, and I was delighted to meet so many Twit­ter friends in real life! Enjoy these images:

  1. cyn­thia ~ What a dream get away for ME! It was truly an amaz­ing time. So, much fun meet­ing all our Twit­ter friends in per­son. Can't wait to do it again.

    Oh, how lovely. I love antiques and unique find­ings! Did you walk away with anything?

  3. Cyn­thia I am in lust just strolling down your pic­ture finds. There is noth­ing so sweet as explor­ing old to repur­pose anew, espe­cially with a bunch of like minded souls. I want those opal glass finials. Did you come home with treasures?

  4. Cynthia says:

    Jen, I came home empty-handed this time! Forced myself to focus on specifics, didn't find any of those. There is always Sep­tem­ber — I'm lucky to live only a short drive away.

    Eliz­a­beth — just the best find: new friends!
