brimfield travel diary

We just returned from our annual road trip to the infamous Brimfield Antique Flea Market. This year we stayed at the lovely Old Sturbridge Inn, with hand-painted landscape walls by Rufus Porter (1830's) and a huge canopy bed. We lined up early and dashed in to see all our most favored dealers, searching for lover's eyes, intaglios, silvery old diamonds, portrait nudes and objets d'art amongst the endless rows of treasures and trinkets.

Fueled by fresh lime rickeys, Faddy's apple cider donuts & Italian sausages, we combed the fields and came back with pockets full of prized finds. Here's our travel snaps and a peek at our favorites. Stop by the shop to see all the new beauties in person!
