When it comes to Brimfield — I can’t help but daydream. I drive past the exit every time I go home to New York to visit my parents, always excited about the prospect of pulling off and wandering the fields. So after patiently waiting all summer for my work schedule to allow, I made my way to the antique juggernaut on a gorgeously sunny Friday.
Spotted this full set of Christolfe flatware (above) in May’s Antique Mart — with a good polish, these are stunners. Steps into J&J Auction Acres, the perfectly worn and uber-charming stand with copper pots caught my eye.
I also picked up a few Ball jars (3 for $12) and blush pearl necklaces and a black & white bakelite bracelet (all for $25). Another very successful, fun year at Brimfield under my belt!
