Thankfully, Brimfield avoided most of the rain that hit the region overnight, so Hertan's Field was nearly dry when we opened for business at 7:30 this morning. We managed to make some good sales despite a thin early crowd, but as the morning warmed up, buyers eventually came out in force, and they kept us busy well into the afternoon. Several of the locals commented that they had chosen to avoid the heat on Saturday, and their patience was rewarded with a Sunday that was absolutely spectacular. Our patience was rewarded as well, as Sunday unexpectedly turned out to be our BIGGEST sales day of the entire week!
We'd again like to thank David and Jerry and all of the terrific folks at Hertan's Field for their hospitality this week. They run a truly fantastic operation, and we can't thank them enough for making our first year at Hertan's not only successful, but delightful. We'd also like to thank our friends at Elegant Tent And Party for another great tent (please mention us when you book your tent with them for next year) and Peter Fuller for our Ford rental van. We are already looking forward to May 13-17, 2015, when (drum roll please) we expect to return to SPACE 165 at Hertan's Field for the next edition of the Brimfield Shows! In the meantime... we're thinking about making our Todd Farm debut! Details coming soon!
