Brimfield Antique Fair...May 2011

I'm trying to catch up on all of the adventures and pictures over the last couple of months, and I am excited to share my finds from my third trip to Brimfield. It is seriously an addicting adventure!
The day started early for the drive from Boston out to Brimfield.
 We parked in J&J again, which I find easy, and gets us right in the heart of the action. 
Last time we were here, I feel like I rushed through some of J&J, and wished I had spent more time there. So this time I made sure to really get saturated in the J&J field, and it paid off!
I went in with a few things in mind that I was looking for, a lemon reamer or juicer, any fun cooking related 'something or others', but besides those items, I wanted to just have fun!
No, it's not a lie, we had fun :)

You can find just about anything at Brimfield...
The Queen needed a bath apparently...
Looking for Vintage?
How about something more...
I see London I see France...


Ok, so what were my finds?? The things that made the cut?
Well, I got a STEAL on this Frye clambroth glass Juicer!  I love that it has steep walls, the smaller walled juicers aren't deep enough to actually hold all of the juice you really want.
Vintage tablecloths are always nice...
So then I found these glass items/inserts...hmmm what are they?
The vendor I bought them from had them on his $5 table, I loved them, so nabbed them. He said he didn't know what they were, but all he sold was depression era glass...
Well, with a lot of research, I have found that these are perfume trays by the India Glass Company in the "Cracked Glass" Pattern and are fairly rare! Price I saw them being sold for online? $165 EACH! Score! 

Other finds included a small pink lemon reamer, a set of apple shaped lunch plates with matching teacups and green "block optic" sherbet plates to go with the sherbet glasses I found last year at Brimfield.
Great vintage recipe booklets, with some great, usable recipes!!

Here's the full table shot of the rest of our loot!
Remember I spy? 
I spy with my little eye...a blue owl candle holder, an old man, a hobnail box, and 1920s glass cameos.
Another successful day at Brimfield! 
A Special Note: A very rare tornado affected many in the Brimfield, MA area recently. Lives were lost and homes were destroyed.  Brimfield, MA and the surrounding areas are a beautiful part of the state and my thoughts and prayers are with those who were affected by this tragedy.
