Brimfield madness

Whoa! It sure has been a while since I posted on here! This past week and a half I was away up in Brimfield MA for the Brimfield antique festival! I go up there three times a year to work for Donnaland helping to set up the tent and tear it down at the end of the week. I ment to post while I was there, and even wrote one out to only have my screen turn blue and then lost it all.. so I was kinda over keeping up with blogging while I was up there so I just dropped it till I got back.

But lucky for you I did keep up with my instagram! So here I have the first half of my trip in photos. If you already follow me on instagram, sorry you have to see all these again! If not, well then your in for a treat, Brimfield has some amazing and wild things to offer for everyone. I highly recommend each and every one of you to check it out at some point in your life! Here is the first half of my photos, more to come! And follow me on instragram if you aren't already! @emilyrosetheo

Driving into Brimfield, this is a few days before opening, you can kind of get an idea of how huge it is. Picture the streets filled with people on a weekend day when its open!

Lots of cool stuff to be found here!

Donna is selling some of a mans vintage dress collection. He started collecting in 1956 for his wife, which grew into an amazing collection of around 55,000 mostly never worn party dresses! Quite a sight to see!!

Found out about an awesome accessory from the 60s, The Knee Tickler! Ment to be worn at the hem of your mini skirt. Love it!

I didn't buy any of these, but I did go flower crazy this past week getting a whole butt load of jewelry, most of it decorated in flowers. These brooches are swoon worthy!
