Brimfield: Summer Show!

brimfield,the greyest ghost

I’ve been so busy with photo projects, I almost forgot: this week is the second of three seasonal market weeks at the Brimfield Antique Show! Brimfield is America’s largest flea market. If you’re anywhere near NY, CT, PA or MA, it’s a must do! People come from all over the world to buy and sell goods at the market, made up of over twenty lots featuring over 5,000 dealers! They literally have everything you could possibly imagine.

I’m off to bed so I can get a (relatively) early start Thursday. I’ll have my camera ready to document any amazing finds. If you have the means to get there, GO! The summer show continues until July 18th. But if you can’t make it this week, the fall show is September 7-12th (right during NYFW!).
