So after a year of waiting, I finally made it to Brimfield. I swear, that place never gets old to me. I love it. The stuff, the food, the people, the port-o-lets. I love it so much, I think it's on my list of places to haunt once I'm gone. The traffic getting in was MUCH worse than in years past. I chalk it up to bad weather on the other days and Thursday being the most gorgeous day of the week. I went with my friend, Carolyn, she had never been. A Flea Market Virgin - truth be known. I have ruined her. We found the best place to park - $3 all day, and actual indoor bathrooms on premises.
Honestly, it is such sensory overload - I can't commit to buying anything for at least 2 hours after arriving. Unfortunately, we could not stay long - just 7 short hours. But we did okay. The FMV walked away with a great deal on a sweet buffet. I only bought a few smaller items, for me, its really just the experience of going and meeting new people ~ I just wish I would have made better plans to meet up with some of you. The time flew by so fast and we didn't get to see a quarter of the place. I can only liken it to being 8 years old again on Christmas morning ~ less my footie PJ's.....although I'll keep that in mind for next time.
If you were lucky enough to get to Brimfield this week, let me know what you picked up. I'll try and post some more photos later (I brought the camera - just didn't stop enough to take any good photos).
Have a great weekend ~ Dee xo
