These are a few of my favorite things: 

As many of you know Brimfield Antique Show is basically along the lines of Christmas for me at Borrowed. It's a full week of picking! The thrill of waiting in line for a new field to open is right up with the smiles of bumping into people you know and showing your loot! The past two times I have included my father in this trip. We scour the fields, and it totally brings back memories of hopping in the car and heading to Vermont to find the perfect dresser for the house when we were younger. Items on our bucket list seem to change daily as we find pieces that we know a sibling or a friend would cherish, but it's all in a days fun... because let's be honest- it doesn't feel like work up there! 

So if you are looking for a great road trip this weekend, we suggest Brimfield! It's less than 2 hours from Norwalk CT, so less than 3 hours from New York. Take a break from the Brooklyn Flea and pack a lunch! 

If you can't make it all the way up to Brooklyn, we will be at the Elephants Trunk Flea Market this weekend on Sunday to catch all the vendors on their way back... it's a weekend you don't want to miss! 


Happy Hunting!
