Where form meets function

This writer is less than 1.5 hours from the big ole Brimfield Antiques Show, which went into full swing this past Tuesday. By our own admission, day one may give you access to only half of the market, as the large fields open up Thursday, but it was clear from the troves of those in the business on-site for one of their annual “inpsiration” getaways that there was still much to be seen.

I, for one, went hunting for a coffee table and a rug  of which I walked away only with a Persian sennah. Other, much more. Here’s a photo sampling of some of the oddities seen on site. For those that missed this week’s show, fear not: you have two more opportunities coming in July and in September.
