Brimfield Bound!

Looks like it's finally happening, and I'm getting excited.

Even though I used to be an antiques writer and I've been an Etsy seller now for several years, I've never been to the Antiques and Collectibles Capital of the U.S.: Brimfield!
Since 1959, Brimfield, Massachusetts has been the site for three annual gatherings of antiques and vintage dealers--thousands of them--who come from all over the U.S. to display and sell their wares: 6 consecutive days (Tuesday through Sunday) in May, July, and September.

None of the other weeks has worked for us this year, or any other year for that matter, but we've finally cleared our schedule and will travel from our home in New Hampshire for the very last day, Sunday, September 11.
Etsy friends and others tell me: "You won't believe the traffic!" "Take a cart along for all your purchases!" "It would take the entire week to see it all!"
Well, we just want to get a taste of what it's like. Maybe there'll be some bargains on the last day (she said hopefully).
Next week I'll let you know what happened. Meanwhile, those of you who have been there, feel free to leave us pointers. Four days and counting!
P.S. Many thanks to the blog "Life to the Brim" for these great pix. Next week they'll be mine....
