I snuck away with a friend for an overnight Friday and a full day of treasure hunting in the sunshine on Saturday at the Brimfield Antiques Show in Massachusetts. I have heard it described as an "extravaganza" and it truly is. A 1/2 mile stretch of road with fields filled with vendors on either side. It would take 3 days to cover the whole place thoroughly and check out all 5,000+ of the vendors. We were there by 7:30am, so got a jump on the crowds and covered quite a bit of ground. My friend was on the lookout for a bench and some art. I was hunting for items I had added to my wish list over the winter and haven't been able to find at local estate sales.
I am going to clean-up this tin child's sink and make a little skirt for the opening
where it is missing a door and use if for a shelf display.
I saw a nursery lamp like this over the winter at a local consignment shop, but it was in terrible shape and too expensive. This Irmi Jack and Jill lamp had belonged to the dealer's daughter
(now 42 years old) and I couldn't resist!
I love little chairs, and this one matches a wooden doll rocker in my daughter's room.
