Brimfield Sightings and Best of Flea Market Style Feature

May 23, 2017   /   byKristin Nicholas  / Categories :  Feeds
A couple weeks ago, I went to the Brimfield Flea Market which is only about an hour from our farm. I have been going to this flea market for years and I look forward to it. I go by myself so I can shop as fast or slow as I like. I usually go on Friday because that is the day the J&J Show opens. This show used to be the high end field of all the different fields that open during the week. Unfortunately it has gone a bit down hill and the quality isn't as great. But it is still a fun and inspiring day. After I run through J & J, I head over to a few of the other fields that opened earlier in the week but still have vendors present.

Here are some photos I snapped of things I liked - but didn't buy. Do you see a theme? I do - pattern, ceramics, and sheep. It's what I am into at this moment in time. 












When I got home that afternoon, I found the newest copy of Best of Flea Market Style Magazine in my mailbox. 



And you guessed it - there was our house! 



This is a publication by Meredith and is a twice yearly magazine that is only available at newstands or at Barnes and Noble, possibly Walmart and Target and places they sell magazines. The pictures were taken by Rikki Snyder for Country Home but since Meredith owns Country Home and owns the photos outright, they could write another article about our farmhouse. 

I'd say this house is getting a bit too much exposure! Oh well - I guess I'll take it and be thankful for it. Here is the end page of the magazine with a photo of our porch with my oil paintings. I like the quote from Thomas Edison

"To invent you need a good imagination and a pile of junk."




The next Brimfield Antique Show/Flea Market is July 11 to 16. Information here. People travel from all over the world to visit this show. I'm so lucky to live close. 

Hope you all are having a good week.

Thai Fisherman’s Pants

On our first visit to Thailand I bought rather a lot of fabric.  One of the lengths that I bought was specifically woven for Thai Fisherman’s pants.  My husband quite likes wearing loose trousers – he’s one of those bearded guys you see on holidays in hippy clothes 😉 – so this fabric purchase was… Continue reading Thai Fisherman’s Pants
