Brimfield Antique May Show

Before we left for Brimfield I started making the “Brim Bag” It is an oversized flea market shopper with a burlap base and vintage fabric on the outside. I made a few out of some “cheetah” upholstery fabric and then I also used some vintage repurposed curtain fabric, the cheetah fabric bags are all gone!

I will be making more soon and you can get one here or at the July Brimfield Antique Show.We made lots of decorator pillows and sold many of them. I just can’t resist buying nice fabric and a little goes a long way when making pillows. I also love to sew with vintage linens.

The most favorite things we sold this show were the painted furniture pieces mostly dressers but side-tables and coffee tables also found homes in various other states the pink commode went to Canada with some awesome fun gals who spent the whole week shopping Broomfield. I’ve been going for 6 years and I hardly get off my field!

Please excuse our blurry pictures, it had rained and there was so much humidity that we couldn’t keep the camera from fogging up.

My husband built and re-built this one out of spare parts and it was easily sold.

You can see the other dogs who posed for us on our facebook page. I look forward to our week at Brimfield Antique Show and get all excited for weeks as we work with little sleep to get ready. Hubby calls this “Brim-Fever” and I get it three times a year!

  1. Hi Peggy,
    Sorry I didn’t get to see you at Brimfield. You and Wayne do such fabulous work! I’m so glad it was a success for you. I found a few great pieces. I met a friend from Tucson, AZ there and they go every year. I was on their agenda – of course that worked for me because I had no idea what I was doing – it’s a bit overwhelming for me.

    Come by the shop when you can, I’d love to see you. Until then, be well and sell, sell – sell!

    1. Hi Sally,
      We did miss you but we sure know what Brimfield is like. I will try to stop by soon when I am down your way.
      Enjoy the beautiful flowering trees!
      Fondly Peggy
