Oh Carole,
Couldn't you transport me over ? !!! I want ALL of it. We went to an Antiques Fair last saturday and it wasn't half as good as yours ! Our daughter bought an angle poised lamp, some copper pans that were a bargain, a couple of old tin baths to put plants in and I bought some glass pharmaceutical bottles, an old rusty clock ( WHY?!), and some Edwardian spectacles, but there weren't any grain sack cushions or lovely chairs like the ones that you have shown.
Hope that you and George are getting back to normal after that naughty Irene ! Didn't she cause a great deal of devastation ? I am so very sorry for those who lost their homes and their possessions and those that lost their lives. So tragic.
Have a lovely time at Brimfield. XXXX

I'm sorta glad we didn't make the trip up this time with the weather being so rainy! Been there before in Sept. and you could have floated a boat in front of our booth! Happy hunting, take lots of photos!

Unknown said...

Julie said...

Oh. I am so so sad that I can't be there.
Perhaps it's a good thing I can't go there(smile)

Happy Hunting!

i could barely keep my eyes on the post when the sidebar was so extraordinary.

but finally ...
the shot at the end of the post just floored me.

the old white house said...

oh. my. gosh. if I clap my heels together 3xs and wish really hard then maybe you will see me sitting next to you in your car! What a wonderful place. I will try not to embarrass you when I do the happy dance in the tent full of trim and old textiles. promise. really.
If I don't get my wish, have a great time, and tell us all about it! t. xoxoxoxo

Happy Hunting! Wish I were with you this time...

Romeo said...

Oh, you're killing me!!!! I LOVE, LUST OVER, and REALLY LOVE old textiles! Seriously! I would have had to pay rent in the booth with all the lace and ribbon, as well as the one with the handloomed linen/hemp. I would have been in those two booths alone for probably three days! Oh, I can't wait to see what you found and pictures.....please, pretty please with Cricket-Cat-Snacks on top, please post pictures....I'll be waiting.....

Olive said...

Carole, I must have been under my mountain of linens (ironing) when you posted this. That last image of the dog on the chaise is sublime. Maybe before I am 89 Joe and I will get to Brimfield. You have a ball♥ olive

Connie in Hartwood said...

Brimfield is a bucket list item for me ... so is Round top. I have to clear some space in the house, and be a good girl and save up, to do this. I'm working on it.

You and I seem to gravitate to the same sort of things. Beautiful!

jacklynn4 said...

I bought the iron cabinet!:) What booth were the top photos taken in? I need to shop there!

Vicki Boster said...

You are killing me with these incredible pictures! The lace and notions - OMG - I would never be able to leave that booth! Unbelievable~~
