Brimfield Bound

DSC_0619Have you ever been to Brimfield, MA for one of the antique shows?
It's the largest antique show in the country, with 5,000+ dealers.
(Just thinking about it makes my heart race!)
I have wanted to go for years - long before I became an antique dealer. 
(I still don't consider myself an antique dealer; more like a 
"purveyor of really cool junk"!)

I'm finally getting my chance this week!   
I'm heading out bright and early Monday morning with an empty pick-up truck and I don't plan to come back until it's loaded with the coolest stuff I can find for my shops!   

If you've been there before, I'd love to hear 
any tips on best dealers, places to eat, the do's and don'ts, etc. of shopping the show!

So, wish me luck - I'll keep you posted along the way!
