Well we finally made the trip to Brimfield. It was HOT. And there was a lot of STUFF. And we walked A TON. Thank goodness for those apple cider donuts that got us through the tough times of antique shopping. Honestly, I was a little tiny tad bit disappointed. The prices were very reasonable but there was so much weeding through country rustic New England real antiques for some slim Mid-Century / Hollywood Regency pickins. Is it really true that all the funky, modern, cheap finds are in LA? Don't let us down, September Brimfield. Click through to hear how we envision each piece.
Emily loves to shop, and I love NY, so we can't stop ourselves from spending a sunny afternoon pointing, poking, and trawling through, not only the flea market, but also the new york home tradeshow. Called "antiquing" 30 years ago, we found some great vintage trends at Brooklyn Flea that would add style, pop and personality to any room.
Curiously, at the trade show, we noticed "new" vintage inspired designs that could have been straight out of the flea markets and vintage shops. Vintage is hot, as it should be, and we're thankful that good designs of the past never go out of fashion. One man's trash is another man's treasure, and yet another's new purchase, as you can see.
