Brimfield was quite the roller coaster this past week! We went from scorching hot temps into the 90's on Wednesday and Thursday to cool and more seasonable weather for the weekend; we saw an excellent turnout on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, with much sparser crowds on Thursday and Sunday; and we saw results that reflected the turnout, as Wednesday and Saturday were excellent, Friday turned out to be about average, and Thursday and Sunday featured our worst two performances ever at any Brimfield show. Our overall results were solid, and as always we really enjoyed our time in Hertan's Field. We hope to hit the Hollis Flea Market sometime this month!

The weather on Opening Day Wednesday and Thursday was the same - hazy, hot, & humid - but the turnout and results were quite different, as we had an excellent Wednesday, one of our best days ever (bolstered by the sale of our large Firestone sign), followed by a Thursday that saw probably the smallest Brimfield turnout we've ever seen and the lowest amount of sales we can remember. People just did not want to shop in 90 degree heat, and we ended up packing up for the day just before a few thunderstorms moved through the area. The next three days should feature temps in the 70's, perfect fall shopping weather, and we hope and expect the crowds to return in force. Find us in Space 55 in the second row of Hertan's Field from 8am each day until at least 4 in the afternoon - look for the American flags on top of our tent!

Lovequist Antiques will be set up in SPACE 55 of Hertan's Field starting this Wednesday, September 5th, at NOON sharp. This space is just behind our traditional front-row location, in the second row of tents, just steps from Route 20. We will have a ton of fresh advertising pieces available, from signs to tins and crates to boxes, plus "Brimfield's largest selection of milk glass", numerous pieces of ephemera including several WWI and WWII posters, and lots of other collectables and decorative items. See you next week!

Lately, the weather has not been cooperative, but things look better this weekend, so we WILL be at the Hollis Flea Market this Sunday! Two cars, two spaces, and too much stuff! Find us in our usual spot along the treeline in the middle of the field by 6am!

I think all of us in this area were glad the weather was finally good enough to head on up to the Hollis Flea Market today. Lots of friendly people, lots of dealers, lots of pollen... well 2 out of 3 ain't bad! We ended up having a solid performance, with several quality sales making up for what was a low quantity of sales. We've got a busy June on tap, so our plan is to make our next appearance at Hollis on Sunday, July 1st. Look for us then!

So far this spring, we've suffered though one rainy weekend after another, but the weather finally looks good for this coming Sunday, so we are planning a return to the Hollis Flea Market! Find us in our usual location along the tree line in the middle of the field. We will only be taking one spot this Sunday, but it will be chock full with a lot of the great stuff we were not able to bring to Brimfield this year, including tons of great advertising signs, crates, and boxes, dozens of old license plates from all over the USA and beyond, and maybe even some furniture and framed prints. We'll be ready to go by 6am and hope to see you there!

We will NOT be in Brimfield this weekend. Due to a combination of factors, including an expectation of rain on Saturday, we will NOT be making the trek to Brimfield this weekend. Our apologies to everyone who was looking forward to seeing us, we are just as bummed about it as you are! Hope to see you at Hertan's Field in September!
