Brimfield, Last Weekend

We went to Brimfield last Saturday, before the heat wave made it too awful to go out. Since our apartment is already full of stuff, I didn't buy anything except several replacement crystals for the sad chandelier in our lobby. I enjoy Brimfield for walking around, browsing, and having an apple fritter. Many dealers oblige people like me by making eye-catching, often surreal displays in front of their tents.

Here are a few of my favorites:

The gas masks are a nice touch.

 That is a monkey wrapped around whatever the heck that is on the front fender.
I have no idea what this is... a camouflage outfit for hunting abominable snowmen?

So I guess this would be the ensemble for hunting abominable snowmen in tropical climates.

If you needed a few dozen very iffy lifesavers, you'd be all set.

How often do you find a photo of the owner of a vintage dress tucked in with the dress? Wonderful.

One dealer scored a big haul of what must be musty-dusty Masons' outfits and so on...

I kind of wanted one but couldn't imagine putting it on my head. 

I saw this both coming in and going out of the parking lot at Quaker Acres, so it had to be a deliberate tableau.

  1. Do you watch American Pickers on the History Channel? Rusty gold!

    We are looking for a marble top table so let us know next time you're going. I could make you my buying agent!
