Brimfield part 2

What can I say when I walked into this tent....and a big
 tent it was I felt
like I had walked into a different world.
and it wasn't because I necessarily ran into these strange
body parts either. I think I walked in
from the otherside actually but this side is much more dramatic, don't you think?
It might explain what I bought later on my second day:)) huh?

Aren't those huge anatomy prints just too cool!
I don't like the sight of blood.....real blood that is and have to turn
away when I see shows with real operations being preformed.
No thank you, not for me!
Thank goodness there are people out there that can stomach
 that stuff!

Ok what I meant to say before I went on about body parts(sorry)
was this booth reminded me of an old military tent.
I half expected to see Napolean himself walking around the corner.
Well, at least a good look alike. 

The feel of the place was incredible.
It was swarming with people and not only
lookers, people buying these huge pieces
of furniture.

Isn't this an interesting chair?

Even their keys where HUGE

I bought one of these seltzer bottles.
They looked great in large quantity but no I only bought
a measly 1.

Looking back at this photo I could have swore I
I saw a French flag but the place sure seemed French.

Just so cool I wanted to go back the next day but I never did.
Maybe next year?
and then with a bigger vehicle.
for White Wednesday

thanks for stopping by!

Those first few pics are just awesome. That looks like a booth that should be at the Texas shows, I bet they'd sell it all. Do you know whose booth that is? Great things.

HI Carole ~ I love it! I know I didn't wander into that tent (and am miserable that i didn't) yes maybe next year - and maybe I'll get to meet you there then as well. Great photos. It is a crazy magical place, isn't it? This time around, I mostly came home with photos - sometimes thats all I really need....and kettle corn:) said...

Wow, I went two days and never made it to that tent. Sorry I missed it. What an awesome display. Glad I got to see it through your lense:)

It is very different-but I really like it. Sometimes I get bored seeing the same thing!

Olive Cooper said...

That is a terribly intriguing booth Carole. The rotund vessels were very pretty. The large pieces were all pretty also. I would have impulse control issues! hugs♥olive

It's me said...

Ann @ makethebestofthings said...

Whoa, that all looks awesome! I can see half a dozen things I would like to bring home. Also, the staging of all these pieces in that tent is very impressive, someone really knew what they were doing!

Hey Carole
This is wonderful... I love it all.. My fascination with anatomy prints became more so when i was studying massage.. I think If i'd gone ahead with a clinic I would have filled the space with things just like this... Reminds me of my youth visiting the homoepath with my mum.. Just a wee bit jealous of the seltzer bottle been trying to buy one of those for years... fabulous!! oooh and the globes.. Just too much goodness here!!

Have a fabulous day... I'll just be drooling over these photos.. xxx Julie

Theresa said...

Oh my gosh!! Your photos are gorgeous, the booth is AMAZING! I have never been to Brimfield and WOW am I missing out! Really, just stunning, beautiful things, my heart is racing just looking at the pics, and I am not even there! They may have needed smelling salts to revive me if I were :O Thanks for sharing, I am enjoying living vicariously through you right now, we both seem to admire the same things! Theresa xoxo

Jacqueline said...

WOW Carole,
It looks like a field hospital in the Crimean War !!!!.... and a wee bit gruesome....although I don't mind the sight of blood and CAN watch those operations on the tele !!!! I think that I must be a bit warped !!
I love those great big pieces of furniture and I really love the unusual chair.It would look wonderful in the hall, although I think you would need a pretty big hall !!
I have a soda syphon, but it's in a cupboard....I think that I'd better get it out now.
As usual, I am so envious that you have such great Antiques Fairs !
Lots of love. XXXX
