Brimfield Fair 2015

Brimfield Fair…A New England tradition where people gather three times a year to hunt through miles of hidden treasures.  We missed our chance in May, but thanks to family watching the kids we were able to hit the road last week.  Once again, Lucas was our chauffeur/hauler/camera-man for the day!

There is so much to see, that you really need two days to see it all.  We did as much as we could in 6 hours.  Here are a few tips we have learned throughout the years:  Vendors expect you to barter..never pay asking price! Bring a cart for your haul.  We found ours on Amazon.  Bring lots of small bills…you get the best deals with cash.  Schedule your trip for the end of the week for the best bargains.  Vendors would rather sell their merchandise than pack it up.  Start towards the back where prices are lower and work your way to the street.  Last but not least, bring a snack, water bottle and hand sanitizer!

Lucas thought this sign was fitting after six hours of shopping with the New England Nesters:

He did find a Chick-fil-A after, so it was worth the trip! (Secretly we think he likes going junkin’ as much as we do!)
