BRIMFIELD SEPTEMBER 2016 SNEAK PREVIEWS - WAR POSTERS AND EPHEMERA

This September marks the very first time we will be bringing ephemera and fine art to our front row location in Space 36 of Hertan's Field. I'll have pictures of some of the paintings and prints we'll be offering coming soon, but today's sneak preview is of several of the fine World War I and World War II posters we'll be offering starting Wednesday, September 7th at noon. We will also have some old maps and various other paper items available for sale, weather permitting. All of the below are protected in hard plastic top-loaders, making them easy to inspect and transport safely.


This classic "Christy Girl" is one of the most popular and valuable posters from World War I.


This Victory Garden poster is one our favorites from World War II and was folded away for many years so the colors are very sharp. 


This is the smaller version, fantastic condition, we also have the larger one available. 


We're not quite sure when this very uncommon bonds poster was made, we believe it is from the late 30's, just before the U.S. got involved in World War II.

BRIMFIELD MAY 2016 - THE GRAND FINALE... AND WHAT'S NEXT

Sunday was the final day for this edition of the Brimfield Antiques Shows, and what a GRAND day it was. When we arrived at 8am the parking lot at Hertan's Field was already nearing capacity, causing veterans of the show to comment that they'd never seen it so busy so early on a Sunday. Tons of folks remarked that it was their first trip to Brimfield. We made sales well into the 4pm hour and ended up having a record-breaking week!
Our thanks go out to David, Janet, Jerry, Roger, and the rest of the staff of Hertan's Field for putting on another spectacular show, and the friendly folks at East Billerica Shell, who provided our U-Haul van for the week. And we can't forget our five amigos from Barcelona! We look forward to returning in September!
Our next appearance is scheduled for Sunday, July 31st at the Hollis Flea Market. We will be taking two spaces and bringing antique advertising tins and tobacco tins, milk glass and colored glass, some advertising signs, numerous wood crates and boxes, various antique iron and metal pieces, and a great deal of bargain merchandise that will be priced super-cheap!

BRIMFIELD MAY 2016 - DAY THREE

Today was a pretty typical Friday for those of us in Hertan's Field, with the standard quiet start to the day, followed by a pretty solid stream of buyers into mid-afternoon, a stream which slowed to a trickle once the 4pm hour hit and the forecast rain approached, so we high-tailed it out of there a bit early and beat the rain home. One big sale and a good amount of smaller ones made for a decent result for a Friday. Saturday's forecast calls for temps in the mid-70's and rain to arrive around dinnertime, so we plan to be open by 8am and remain open until at least 5pm, and expect things to be very busy! Find us in Space 36, in the FRONT ROW of Hertan's Field, right along Route 20!
