There’s always something that makes each Brimfield a special kind of stressful… this year’s list includes an encephalitis outbreak and torrential rain accompanied by a tornado warning or two. Thankful for the people and the tiny gestures that make it all not only bearable but fun. Rolling out now! Shop open tomorrow and Sunday!!! . #bluefarmantiques #brimfield
G’nite shop! Back mañana, 11-3
What a week(end)! Franklin Stage Co. to see Billy Bishop one last time with a friend who was long overdue for a visit to the hills, a fantastic half-century birthday celebration with friends, jammed all day long with a needle and thread to bind 150 mini notebooks for yet another friend’s forthcoming wedding, and people with great style, taste and judgement took things to new homes. Lights out! Going home!!!
Cracks me up. So much confidence punctuating Every. Single. Word. [SOLD] . Sign avail on website (in bio) Shop open today and tomorrow 12-5:30
I may lose friends for this, but here it goes—I had no idea Russel Wright designed stemware 😱 Plates and dinnerware I knew about, sure! In the NYC fleas of the 90s, you could lose a hand just by reaching for a damn saucer. But glass!? Anyway, a collector friend did me justice when he walked in a few weeks ago and schooled me with two cases of the stuff! Primarily wine glasses and champagne/cocktail coupés in alternating smoke and chartreuse colors (sets of 10 and 12, respectively), there are also 8 berry bowls in the sea foam color and 5 chartreuse cordials. Need? Give a holler. . Shop open Saturday-n-Sunday, 12-5:30 . #bluefarmantiques #barware #stemware #russelwright #vintage #vintagebarware #design #tabletop #americanmodern #itsfiveoclocksomewhere
Final (for me) day of shopping Madison Bouckville Antiques Week. Found some pretty spectacular things I think, and always think myself lucky to get to see friends in that kind of setting (windmills, hills, blue skies). But I am whooped! Funny bit is that I’m somehow too exhausted to make salad dressing from a package but had no problem making myself a Manhattan. Cheers 🥂 #bluefarmantiques #madisonbouckvilleantiqueweek
My star purchase-of-the-day at this year’s Madison Bouckville antique show... Leiman Brothers two station jewelers bench with drawers, tin-lined catches and downright magical surfaces. This, of course, after I told myself no large purchases after yesterday’s glass-front china cabinet, three quilts, garden table molded blanket box, glassware… I should just learn to shut up and take whatever the universe decides to hand me. . #bluefarmantiques #farmhousedecor #farmhousestyle #jewlersbench #industrial #patina
