Brimfield 2010

I’m back from Brimfield, tired, not broke and a little sunburned. Overall feel? Eh, I didn’t find anything amazing that I needed. Well expect for an old watering can, kinda lame but it’s perfect. Maybe I’ve gotten picker? I did check out a lot of tilt top candlestick tables, chairs and beds. But honestly I thought everything was too pricey and nothing was really outstanding. I am looking for more and better examples of early american furniture in beautiful cherry or maple wood.

I had a lot of fun looking. I met up with the ladies of design*sponge. Check out a cute photo of Amy Merrick, Amy Azzarito and Grace Bonney below. And I bumped into fellow boston twitter friend and blogger Julieann of CreateGirl. Having some girltime was the best part.

I think auctions might be a better bet for me. Leave me a comment if you know of any good ones coming up in New England.

p.s. see a photo of me and the girls over at d*s including some of Grace and Amy’s finds.
