My Life in Instagram: Antiquing in Brimfield, MA

I somehow convinced my mom and boyfriend to escort me to the biggest antique show in the United States. Neither are big on shopping, but both love a good trip. My mom rented a car and we drove about three hours from Brooklyn to Sturbridge, MA, where our hotel was located. It was a hot weekend, but thankfully the hotel had a pool! 

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw some of my fabulous finds. I didn't find anything on "the list," but I found lots of other treasures that I'm super happy with.

We stopped at a diner on the way and I had the most delicious pecan pancakes. I'm so craving them now. I don't think I emphasize enough how much I love breakfast food. Maybe that's why I love Leslie Knope so much.

It's kind of crazy that we were only 15 minutes away from this small town filled with vendors. We stayed in Sturbridge, but the market was in Brimfield.

My beautiful mom and I struck a pose before the heat melted us. My boyfriend said I seemed unfazed by the sweltering weather, but I guess I was mentally prepared.

Day one was a huge success! There were a few things I wish I'd gotten, of course, but I'm in love with the things I found. I got three feather hats in perfect condition for about $10-$15 each. I got a pancake candle that smells like maple syrup, along with a variety of food cutouts. I got perfect flower broaches, a cute purple dress and a pastel Marc Jacobs bag. The bag ended up being $25 with a combined deal!

Alas this dress did not come home with me. It was lovely but too big and I'm too cheap to pay for a tailor on top of the semi-expensive price.

Day two was a smaller success, but equally fun! I nabbed these adorable broaches and a beautiful carpet bag. I don't have any photos from day three since we left around mid-day, but I ended up with a red leather tote and an illustrated Supreme's poster.

I feel weird and not weird about posting this photo. Maybe I feel weird that I don't feel weirder, like it should be a statement or something, but I'm kind of like "Whatever, this is the real me, belly, cleavage and all." I'm super into my new bathing suit!

It took two days to get this shot, I kept missing it!

Stay tuned for more photos via my camera and maybe a post about what I learned/tips!

P.S. I literally just finished the bag of homemade doughnuts we bought there and now I'm sad. They were sooo good. We're already planning to go next year in May. I was surprised to hear my mom was open to it once more!

  1. I saw some of your photos on instagram, but I must have missed most of these. I just about did a spit take when I saw the price for your Marc Jacobs bag. $25? That's insane. I used to see handbags at Bloomingdale's, that would have been at least $800 new. It looks like you got a lot of amazing deals, and you and your mom look beautiful.

  2. haha it was a vendor with newer stuff. This particular bag was a bit beat up, I still have to clean it but it's such a great color! My mom got a nearly new jeweled Fendi Baguette for $160. She was over the moon. She also got a bunch of fancy Italian shoes for $15-$20 each that were new or almost new. The prices totally depended on the vendor, some of the vintage was crazy expensive.
