Yay!!! Brimfield!!! I apologize if this picture is a bit fuzzy. It was hard to keep the camera still while doing a happy dance! Great weather, great finds, great company...what more could a person ask for?
Oh, and the surprise...
I was shopping at Mahogany Ridge when I noticed a film crew. At first I thought it was the local news...but then I realized, it wasn't the news, it was Flea Market Flip! Needless to say, I introduced myself to Lara Spencer and told her I'd love to be on the show with my kindred spirit, Kris! I ran into the crew literally everywhere...they even bought one of their projects from my friend, Mike! I can't wait for the show to air!!!
But back to the real reason for going to Brimfield...cool stuff! I got a lot of it! I told my BF not to bring the trailer, because I was only looking for smalls. That was a mistake...thank goodness for delivery!
Check out this great vintage folding table! Counter height, metal brackets, perfectly weathered, folds flat....Happy! It's already at Mill City Antiques!
This is another beauty! I actually bought two of these sets of drawers, probably originally from an old mercantile. The drawers are super deep and the top is counter height. I imagine putting the two together with a zinc top. The perfect kitchen island! Still waiting for the second set of drawers to be delivered...this one I snuck into my friend's van. Thanks, Hetha!!!!
I was buying this set of 8 HUGE (and HEAVY) industrial bins when I first noticed the film crews. I love the industrial look, the handles, the label holders....everything! Clean them up and sell them as is? Paint some white? Paint some barn red? Ooooh...barn red. I like that.
I admit I didn't pick this piece up at Brimfield. I happened across it the next day. But it looks like it was meant to be with the bins, doesn't it? It's five pieces: base, two sets of three drawers, large file drawer, and set of three magazine files. I might have to keep it... This piece will be a labor of love, for sure. It's covered in olive oil. You don't want to know...
