About a week and a half ago we went to the Brimfield Antique Show which is one of the biggest antiques shows on the east coast. Kevin has recently become interested in the art of shaving. He’s been looking for antique razors and had a couple in mind that he wanted to purchase. One of the first days we were in Boston we went to different antique stores looking for them. There weren’t very many to be found, but one store recommended we go to the Brimfield Antique Show so we looked it up. Once we did, we were hooked!
The Brimfield Antique Show happens three times a year (May, July, and September) and we were fortunate enough to be in the Boston area at the right time. Fortunately (and unfortunately) Kevin didn’t have much to do the first week we were here while he was waiting to get access to various things at BU and BYU. So, it worked out that we were able to take a full day and go to the show. We are about an hour and a half from Brimfield which means we needed to drive. Laura was interested so we packed up a bunch of snacks for the girls and made the trip out there. It was definitely worth the drive!
I was overwhelmed by all the amazing treasures for sale. There was even a shop that had succulents in antique cups and pots! Somehow I forgot to take a picture of it though… Anyway, I could have spent a couple days there. Anything antique you’d ever was there. It was wonderful! I wasn’t looking for anything in particular, but I figured I’d end up getting something.
I’ve always thought it would be fun to have a vintage suitcase but never found one for the right price. There were lots of suitcases here! I ended up buying a really cute blue one with periwinkle interior. The best part? it was only $10! I also got a flower frog. I wanted a little more intricate one, but they were much more than I wanted to pay. The one I got though was also $10 and I really like how I look. I’m hoping to buy some succulent cuttings when I get back to plant in it. I’m sure you are shocked right?
I took more pictures of some of the things I was tempted by, but in the end I had to make sure I’d be able to get it home on the plane, otherwise it would have cost me a great deal more in the end. This is something I would love to come back to for sure! I’ve never been to anything quite like it!
Miriam loved this little chair and didn’t want to leave it!
I forgot to tell you about my favorite part… the Apple Cider Donuts! I’m sure I was pretty hungry but these were so delicious! I ate two and could have had more. It was the most satisfying things for my tastebuds and such a great way to celebrate the coming of fall. Laura tells me there is an apple farm we can go to and have more donuts and apple cider. That I can’t wait for!
