Two days later and I am still feeling the effects of Brimfield, achy legs and shoulders, but it was worth it! I am very excited about some of the items I got and have already started working on some new projects on Sunday.
Everytime I go to Brimfield I am always surprised by the array of prices. Some dealers are very high priced where others are very reasonably priced. It all depends where they are located in the market. My best advice is not to shop close to the street or at the beginning of the antique market. You want to spend most of your time in the back of the lots. That is where the deals are.
Here is what spending $67 at Brimfield looks like.
Regretfully I left Brimfield and about 5 minutes later my brother, Jeff, and Danielle come across Candy and Courtney from Storage Wars NY. They had a vintage clothing booth set up and even the banana van was there. They were the best kept secret at Brimfield tucked away in the back of a lot. I vow never to miss a row at Brimfield again you never know who is going to be there. Danielle scored that fabulous vintage lined Dublin wool jacket and matching skirt for just $30 but she also has a story to go with it.
