Brimfield Flea Market & Antique Show

Can you say heaven on earth? The Brimfield show is the countries largest outdoor antique market. It is 1 mile long and 21 fields deep down that mile!! Amazing :) We were there for a little over three hours and weren't even close to seeing it all. Here are some of the beautiful treasures that we saw:




Anything that you could ever wish for that is vintage or an antique, I guarantee it was there at least 10 times. Adam's mom and I had such a great girl's bonding day...and we both scored some AMAZING treasures :)
1. This beautiful old bottle crate :) and all of these beautiful old bottles. Some of the bottles are perfume bottles, some jars, a pitcher, a container, whatever. All old and all precious. I am going to create this little memory keeper that will be a modified version of Jodie's original idea :) In each bottle we will keep sand or rocks or shells that come from the places that we visit on vacation. I have ALWAYS been one to pick up rocks from a special place that I visit and keep them in this little leather bag that I leave in my hiking pack. I love this but I could never remember where they came from. I am soooo excited to start filling these bottle with memories from Adam and I's adventures :)


**After the fact*** (My bottles must be somewhere here that I can't find at the moment... I'll get pics of those later :D)
2. These gorgeous hand sewn blocks from a Crazy Quilt. You can tell that these are really old pieces and they are so detailed and beautiful and I can't wait to make something cool out of them!!!






3. Vintage feed sack fabric that I will use on a very special quilt soon!!!

4. My most wonderful find of the day (and probably month), this depression era quilt. I am sooooo in love with it. It is totally going to fit our bed too! Amazing colors, amazing condition, AMAZING! I napped with it today :) I seriouly dreamt of the girls who made it and wondered their story...quilts are so magical :)





The fair actually goes through the weekend so if ANYONE is looking for anything specific, let me know!!
This place is amazing. I highly suggest making the trip to visit it some day :)
Happy shopping!!!

**Tomorrow Adam's mom, Rachel, and I are going on a "Quilt shop" hop (like a bar hop but with quilt shops) all through Mass, New Hampshire and Vermont!!! I can not wait!!!
