As I get ready to go to Brimfield with my buddies I thought I would share this photo of my Dad and Granddaddy together at Brimfield sometime in the 60s I believe.  My Granddaddy was, among other things, an antiques dealer.  I am sorry we never got to share that passion but am happy that the gene has been passed down and furthermore, that it seems to have taken hold in both my boys as well.

It not necessarily the best photo, photographically speaking, but it holds great sentimental value for me and I am glad I have it.

And I’m putting my Brimfield wish list out there just for good mojo:

Old metal mail box

Tall medical cabinet (hopefully a crazy industrial teal color)

Leather Settee

Metal lawn furniture (hopefully the old shell kind)

Plus any other super cool deals that catch my eye!


Anyone else going?  What’s on your list?

    Hey T. Thanks for the picture. You can tell by the length of my hair that I was only several weeks out of Infantry OCS and as usual, Daddy was ‘dressed to impress’. I hope you enjoy Brimfield as much as he did. He drove from NC to New England often and this was one of his favorite stops. d.

    Happy treasure hunting!

    I have never heard Brimfield but it is on my radar now. Just tucked away until that time I find myself in MA. I found my metal shell lawn furniture at the flea market at the Raleigh State Fairgrounds when I lived in NC. Now it resides in our backyard here in L.A.

    Good luck finding everything! I wish I could go too. Is it crazy that if I were going, that would be my list too? Weird.
