Brimfield Antique and Flea Market

Great time was had at the Fair!!! Lots of people buying, lots of people selling, lots of sun and smiles! Fair food, kettle corn, lobster rolls, fresh lemonade, turkey dinner in a sub roll, fries, and drinks! Lots of walking involved, so comfy wear was important.

                               Tents, people, backpacks and carts

Things I liked and didn't get, lovely baskets, vintage thread cabinets, antique desk (top comes down), church pew bench seat. Aren't they all special?

Things I did purchase vintage yarn spools, wooden darning holder, table cloth (loved the fabric), fiesta ware (I have this in MV), woven laundry basket made in India, kilt safety pins for sweaters, bell necklace (handle of SS fork and fork tong for bell)  makes a lovely chime!

I think I did well, no large purchases but it was fun to roam and dream.

Now actually home this week and so looking forward to catching up both in the house and outside.

More to update you all soon. So much going on, my head is spinning.

Hope you are all well and enjoying your days and nights. Thanks for visiting me here in my world. I appreciate your visits and comments.

all my best to you, xoRobin
