Pre Show Comment - April 13, 2015
It's very hard to believe winter is finally over, (is
it???), what with snow still on the ground in places. Until last
week's warmer weather found us, snow still covered large swatches of
fields, and roadsides still had hills of snow remaining from the
snowplows. Yep, you heard about Boston's record snowfall, and we'd
be remiss to mention that we had a record snowfall here in Brimfield also.
Now that daytime temperatures are creeping up into the 50s and
60s, (but still at 40s at night), there has been lots of melting going on,
and fields are beginning to dry and harden up.
But it wasn't until
yesterday's beautiful weather that we got our first true taste of what's
on the way.
We continue to receive requests from dealers and
vendors looking for info on setting up booths, but it bears repeating -
the Promoters are responsible for making all vendor arrangements in their
see a list of Promoters and contact info here.
Brimfieldshow.com remains an independent broker of honest info and opinion
about the show - we have no financial interests in, or loyalties to any
parties involved with the show; we stand alone in that premise, and we
exist to serve only ---YOU, the Show Visitors. That's why all
the features are free - free classifieds, free bulletin board, free
shoutbox, free dealer database. Please patronize and support our
advertisers who make this site possible - we appreciate your mentioning
this site when you do!
We're looking forward to The Show, and to
seeing you there on May 12 - May 17!
Feel free to send us any
questions or photos, we'll answer your questions and publish the photos!

Post Show Comment - May 2014
were you there last week? Simply the biggest Show in a long-long time, with
an estimated 500,000 visitors over the course of the week. Personally
speaking, its great to see that the likes of eBay and Etsy have only
popularized antiquing and vintage wares, and we'd admit that the Town was
more consistently busy all week long, something we do not usually see. As
always, the crowds were manageable with few reports of trouble, and the Show
remains a top family/friends outing event.
We at Brimfieldshow.com/.org were interviewed for several
national publications, including an article that included Brimfield as one
of the Top 10 (its actually #1) Outdoor Antique Shows in the Country
(actually the world).
The dealers we spoke to indicated
that this was the best May show in
memory, with more than a few comparing
it back to the early era of the Show,
when Gordon Reid began the shows. Again,
speaking from 30 years of personal
experience and observation - this WAS
the largest Show of all time.
news for us, aside from the May Show, is an updated
Brimfield Show website.
We began Brimfieldshow.com back on March 12,
1998 - 17 years ago - the original Brimfieldshow site.
Getting back to the pre-show
comment - as usual, and as many of
you already know - it will be difficult - if not
impossible, to see the entire Show in one day. Plan your route and please
please please - if you see something you're interested in for possible
purchase later, WRITE DOWN THE FIELD AND STALL NUMBER We get many
questions about ... where can I find this or that...
its almost impossible to track back if you don't know where you were. OKAY,
that's our tip for today.
Please send your photos to us...
email@example.com ... And
we'll post them!
HEY - I do have a personal favor to ask - I am still
looking for a piece... can anyone help? If you have one or can locate
one, I'll even give you free ad-space for a year!!! Check it out:
How far do
you travel to come to the show?, how much do you spend? How do you
Which field is best?
Take the Survey!
IMPORTANT TO READ:
One IMPORTANT note of
- PLEASE do NOT park in any unmarked areas. If you park anywhere not
specifically designated as parking along Route 20 or Route 19 - your car
will definitely be towed. If you are picking up an item
you've purchased and have parked on Rt 20, do not leave your car
unattended. Towing of illegally parked cars in town is BIG
Business - fair warning!
Besides, at $8.00 a day you can get
perfect parking in the middle of the show. Why risk it?
SO WHAT IS THE BRIMFIELD SHOW???
Only the largest outdoor antique show in the world, held since 1959 in
Brimfield, Massachusetts, three times each year, with thousands of dealers
attending! Brimfield is an easy 1-hour ride west of Boston.
Thank you for making Brimfieldshow.com the undisputed leader of all

“High end consignment?” It’s here at Boston
Consignment. The pieces were loved in a Park
Avenue apartment, a Wellesley Tudor, a Greenwich
mega-home or a grandmother’s memory-drenched
attic. Baker, Kittinger and Eldred Wheeler, and
Tiffany China as well as 18th century European
farm tables...and Miriam Haskell, too.. We have
the finest in well treated high quality pieces.
Boston Consignment is an upscale home
furnishings store trading in “furnishings from
the finest homes”. Suiting the taste of the

only the good stuff from Grandma's attic.
Through years of networking from Boston to the
Upper East Side and from Newport to Nantucket,

condominiums in Boston, Bellevue Avenue in
