It reminded me of India but just a back field at Brimfield
We already have an existing stone for it to sit on and water that runs to it so we just needed a new fountain and here she is! We paid for it at the main booth but then drove to a back field to pick it up. Kind of looks like a fountain graveyard doesn't it? But literally within minutes they had all the pieces to our little fountain and even used tape to number how they went together.
We really have been that busy and I haven't gotten any pictures but it is actually unbelievable how far the Inn has come in the past week. Things are moving fast!
CALLING ALL CURTAIN HEMMERS...
If you or anyone you know could help us hem some curtains by Saturday ( I know short notice) please contact Chris @ 802 299 6039 or email email@example.com.
Pretty cool huh?
It is from 1913 and plays 78s.
Know anyone with some because we are in the market?
some fantastic little brass birds for bookshelf styling
We found one dealer that a table of lamps that needed a little TLC but were
excellent shapes and even found a set of brass lamps in great condition.
Not to mention this incredibly cool metal lamp that is going to look fantastic
fixed up for Room 6 (with the black chimney). I like the Inn baby poking around his dad in the back.
He just fell asleep while we scavenged.
While loading up, we had a lot of people checking out our goods and giving the thumbs up
on our finds. Apparently we would be good buyers. Good to note.
ready for the drive back to Windsor!
It's true, we headed back down to Brimfield (Part 1 here) to see if we could find some more bits and pieces and we sure did. We left Windsor at 6AM and got there at 8AM and it was perfect. We got good parking and the crowds were few while vendors opened their tents.We scored on lamps, some amazing reupholstered chairs from 30s that were perfect colors for Room 3 that we had seen while we were there before as well as a few other remaining pieces. Sorry I didn't lots of picture so you will just have to come see for yourself.
The Inn baby came down with us to experience the day. His first Brimfield at 10 months. We are so glad we went down and have really widdled the list down not to mirrors, frames, and the little bits and bobs. The next one is in July 13-18 and I am sure we will make our way down.

and I believe it!
2 of the bazillion things you can find at Brimfield.
Then we ended it all with a lime rickey and fresh lemonade!
It's that time again--Brimfield is next week. Since we are only 2 hours away, we just can't let it pass by without taking a look. It is THAT amazing. Here's a look at some Brimfied Bits from the past
A collection of other chairs we found at Brimfield, here.
Finding the the partner's desk we were wanting, here.
I am not sure what day we are going and we certainly don't need as much as we did but we need a few bits and pieces and it's just such a fun (full on!) experience.
Anyone else going?
