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!
