Back from Brimfield, MA

Well, honestly all I can say is Brimfield Antique Week was CRAZY NUTSO from just about every aspect! Sometimes it was hilarious, sometimes painful, stressful, exhausting, ridiculous, and sometimes a bit of good plain fun. Plus I got to see one of my pals who lives in Boston which in and of itself made the trip worthwhile.

A few treasures brought back from the trip. A mid century table and lamp combo, some fabric of course, Mr. Sprinkle in red, and the fantastic 40s litho top the list. Plus some planters and other kitchen and holiday odds n ends made the cut.

It's never good when rain is in the forecast, especially on opening day. All you gotta do is get all DIY on your space and voila tarp turns tent. The clothesline ran from tent to tree, then the tarp was looped through clothesline, bungied to other small tent, zipped to large tent, and that handy PVC pipe does the trick for pitchin the homemade tent just right! Welcome to the apron tent!

A shot of the whole space. I got bumped from my original space for some reason and ended up with a larger space so I really had to spread out. Not my ideal setup but I made do. Linens and aprons out front lead to the circus tent filled with housewares and clothes.

And of course, part of the setup inside the big tent set up by color. I love merchandising this way and got a lot of great compliments from customers as well.

color of the month SPRING Green

Green, it’s my favorite color and it’s bursting about! The trees and plants are growing at a rapid pace so this month is my ode to limey springy green! Plus a minty artgoodies ice cream towel is super refreshing! Again a favorite vintage tablecloth of mine, melmac, awesome vintage pear mugs, plus the sweet glass water jar-it also says juice on the other side!


My favorites are so many! The green egg tray, the stack of small trays, the green and white mugs from my grandma's, the super limey melmac of course, the tea bag holder, the tiny egg shaped wedding cake topper is amazing, and the planter- it has such a great garden scene on it. My mom had these in larger sizes growing up and I used to spend lots of time admiring them and thinking of the story in the garden.
