A Beautiful Day at Brimfield

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.
