Brimfield, Massachusetts has an outdoor anitque/flea market several times a year. Generally they are held in the Spring, Summer and Fall of each year. This is a huge event with hundreds and hundreds of antique dealers and sellers. Some of the best and well known dealers sell here.
There are so many dealers and it is such a large event, that they offer an app. No kidding. You can download the app before you go and find your favorite dealers so you know which “field” they are located in.
We are fortunate enough to live about 2 hours from Brimfield so we are able to attend this huge event. Whenever we go, we always end up walking at least 6 miles. I don’t think we have ever seen everything.
There is everything from very high end antiques to odds and ends for $1.00 a piece.
As someone who works on furniture and who does upholstery, it is one of my favorite events. We were able to go in early September and I was able to find some beautiful hemp sheets which are excellent for upholstery. I also found some African Mud Cloth.
Now I just need to find a sofa or love seat to reupholster. A good winter project.
If you live near Brimfield, I really encourage you to go! It’s such a fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Bring your walking shoes, plenty of cash, and a bottle of water!
