Treasures from Brimfield

September 7, 2011
We braved the rain and set off on our adventure yesterday to visit Brimfield’s Antique Show.  The evening’s weather ushered in a cold front and we went from mid-seventy degrees to a damp, cold and soggy 52 degrees.  Thank goodness I wore rain boots with wool socks.  After the hour-and-a- half drive, we parked in a makeshift lot  in the backyard of a neighboring home for $5. Here our adventure began.  I knew that my search would definitely include chicken related items.
My first discovery was this fabulous vintage Little Giant chicken waterer.  I loved the patterns in the glass. They remind me of little framed eggs. The bottom portion is made from thick plastic similar to bakelite.  When I went to pay, the dealer knocked 30% off the price, without me even having to ask.  
Next, in a few fields over, I discovered this vintage wooden chicken cage.  One of these has been on my list for a long time.   They were each marked $59.  I inquired about the price and he let me have one for $10!    I am planning on turning it into a unique coffee table.  Finally, I splurged on four limestone prints of speckled bird eggs and a jay nest.  They are from an old book of the 1840’s.  I think they will be stunning once matted and framed. 
We spent all day in Brimfield.  It was so much fun.  I am already beginning to plan my trip there in May 2012.  I hope some of you make the trip yourself.  Treasures are just waiting to be discovered.  Who knows, we might even bump into each other.
