The Brimfield Antique & Collectibles Show has been a going concern for more than 60 years. I’ve heard tell of it for several years and so, in May, finally checked it out for myself.
The week-long outdoor antiques extravaganza (brimfieldshow.com) happens just outside Boston three times a year (the next dates are July 10-15, and Sept. 4-9). It’s like Brigadoon. And it’s overwhelming — dozens of farmers’ fields that flank the rural road for a couple of miles are filled to the edges with tented stalls. It goes on as far as the eye can see. You will need to take deep gulps of breath and make a plan.
The fields are organized into routes but the map is a jumble at best, so my strategy was to start at one end and work my way through every booth along that side (expect this to take two days), then back along the other. If you didn’t bring a van or truck, don’t worry: The major courier firms have set up booths and will happily arrange shipping.
