Remember when I told you that I was going to Brimfield the next day (Thursday)?
ok maybe you don’t. Well when I woke up at 5am it was raining like crazy.
So I watched the weather channel and it was not looking good.
I kept thinking maybe in Massachusetts it’s not so bad….
ok it’s only an hour and a half away so how different could it be?
I decided to go back to bed.
Not a hard decision……I like sleeping.
By 9 am the weather cleared up and the sun was shining….not a cloud in the sky.
I thought I had made a terrible mistake.
It turns out many of the fields were flooded out
and the May field that always opens on Thursday
couldn’t even open……..and that never happens.
Well Friday was a gorgeous day with the sun finally coming out around midmorning.
This booth was shared by a few different ladies
all with amazing taste right up my alley. This booth filled up fast. I did a quick spin around and while I went around the corner
to go ask a price on a cool zinc container on this shelf it was already scooped up.
That happens to me a lot.
But I consoled myself with other things: )
I used to grow myrtle topiaries. Now I just grow them for myself.
This booth had some great letters and if I had thought of it
I could have cleverly written out something.
Love this metal cabinet.
Seeing it again now…. I should have gotten it
but when it’s still early in the day you just don’t know what’s around the corner.
maybe a U
I did get a great set of brown transferware from here that I’ll show you later.
George asked me why I needed more.
I didn’t have that pattern.
The button and ribbon lady that I showed you in the last post wasn’t there this time but
the ladies that have all those vintage tablecloths had her space and her regular one too.
This time she brought her buttons and ribbon to the show.
I looked at these for a long time and then realized that I have a ton of similar ones that
I bought at an estate sale a couple of years ago that I need to organize and change out the matting.
I keep meaning to show you. Maybe you can help me decide how I
should display them.
It was so hard to resist not buying more.
I did though get some great ribbon
in a color I hardly ever buy
Can you guess what color?
Joining up today for White Wednesday
with sweet Kathleen of Faded Charm.
Will be back with more of Brimfield on my next post.
