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!

After a few weeks of lousy weather, we are excited to finally be able to kick off the 2018 flea market season this coming Sunday morning at the Hollis Flea Market! We'll be taking two spaces along the treeline in the center of the field, and will have TONS of NEW advertising pieces for sale, along with whatever else we can fit in the van! Follow our Facebook page for last-minute and live updates! 

We also want everyone to know that we will NOT be in our usual location on Hertan's Field for Brimfield next month, as we are NOT going to be able to do the full week, but we are still hoping to set up for the weekend - check back in early May for the latest!

... for the FINAL Sunday of the Hollis Flea Market for 2017! The weather is calling for rain by mid-morning and we just don't want to chance everything getting wet. See you in 2018!

Sunday was the coldest morning we've had around these parts in quite some time, and despite the fact that the sun came out and warmed things up by mid-morning, the crowd was probably the smallest we've ever seen at the Hollis Flea Market, and that low turnout led to a decent but unspectacular performance. We are considering one more appearance in Hollis before the month is out, on either 10/15 or 10/22, and will of course let you know right here!

We'll be setting up at the Hollis Flea Market this Sunday October 1st! Now that we own a van, we'll be able to bring some bigger and better stuff along, including some great pieces of furniture, like a Hitchcock rocking chair, some small tables, an antique wooden cradle, a high chair, and more! We've also got a good selection of wood and metal crates, a bunch of advertising signs and tins, some old lanterns, and a whole bunch of other great finds. We'll be on-site by 6am in our usual location along the tree line in the center of the field - hope you can make it!

Sunday was the final Brimfield day of 2017, and it featured the best weather of the week, with near total sunshine and temps right around 70. We found it interesting that Saturday's crowd seemed to consist primarily of older couples, while on Sunday the balance was skewed towards younger folks and families. We finished off what was a pretty decent show with our typical solid Sunday performance, and also got a little something for ourselves, as we made a big trade with another dealer that added a couple of new World War I posters to our personal collection.
We are grateful to the folks at Hertan's Field who make sure that Brimfield week goes as smoothly as possible, and we look forward to returning in May of 2018 for our fifth springtime show. Our thanks as well to Diane Sturdevant and Sturdy Tents for supplying our tent for the week. We were also very pleased with our newly-purchased Ford Transit Connect LWB Van, which was making its flea market debut. It has turned out to be the perfect vehicle for our needs.
As of this moment, we intend to make a couple of appearances this October at the Hollis Flea Market, possibly as early as Sunday 10/1 - check back here or on our Facebook page for the latest!

It took a while for things to get rolling on Saturday, with a lot of lookers but not too many buyers, however, once the 2pm hour arrived, the serious shoppers showed up, and we ended up having one of our best days ever! That performance was greatly helped by the sale of our giant DSP Phillips 66 gasoline sign, but even without that sale, we were happy with our results. Tomorrow is Sunday, the final day of Brimfield for 2017, and we'll be opening by 8am and staying there as long as folks are buying!

Today was a perfect day for shopping, with temps around 70 and mostly sunny skies, and a lot of people took advantage of the terrific weather by spending some time in Brimfield, leading to a pretty solid turnout. We sold a little bit of everything today, from tins to mirrors to milk glass to advertising and street signs. For Saturday, we again intend to open before 8am, and we will be bringing a nice selection of ephemera along for a one-day only appearance, including several terrific WWI and WWII posters, some old maps, and even a giant cardboard Coke Santa! Find us in Space 36 of Hertan's Field, just steps from Route 20!
