So, Brimfield was our first, our first TBB road trip that is…. What were you thinking I meant…ha ha…
Early on a Thursday morning, 5 TBBs (minus Nicole, sadly for us, couldn’t make it) piled into Sonya’s truck with her trailer in tow, all prepped (with a little treat) and waiting for our antique and vintage treasures
We even packed our SPORKS…
Not to fear, Nicole, we made sure you were brought along on all our adventures, in one way or another…meet NIC on a STICK.
She’s a hungry TBB first thing in the morning and a terrible influence….
After two necessary stops, one to fix the trailer hitch;
and the second or maybe it was the third or fourth stop….to well….quench our thirst, we arrived at our destination.
That Nic is just such a lush…….
Then with a quick change we were off to enjoy the hotel’s fine dining….ah….I mean the hotel’s pub fare. But I have it on good authority that the Lobster Mac and Cheese was FAAABBBULLOUSS!!
Bright and early, ok not so bright and early…we were off.
That Nic is just so anxious to get to the stalls….
Sadly…so were alot of other people.
Our first impression of Brimfield….OVERWHELMING! So, so, so much eye candy it was hard to know where to look and which direction to go in.
Maureen was the first one to make a purchase, a lovely vintage red barrel, now residing at her cottage.
Vegetarians and vegans….look away!
We had a memorable and a little expensive stop at a premium linen store. Picture this, 38 degrees Celsius heat and then like a mirage a white tent with….hold your breath here…..AIR CONDITIONING!! And as soon as we walked in…..HEEELLLOOO (to quote Maureen)….MARGARITAS! And a tuck into the most comfortable bed I have ever been in……
Can we stay here all day?
After about 2 hours, we were off with some newly purchased pillows, pillows, pillows and did I mention…pillows. Even Nic got to sleep on some that evening.
The end of the first day….CHEERS!
Dinner was at this lovely restaurant the second evening…Avellino…The Duck.
The second day, we were chomping to get back at it, but the weather had other ideas….a TORNADO WARNING…really! Well, that didn’t stop these determined TBBs. We braved the torrential rains and still managed to find a few more treasures.
Some were more reluctant than others to get into the cart.
And at the end of that long day, it was hard…NOT to find our truck and trailer in the parking lot….
The before –
And the after –
The treasures were bountiful and we all found a little or big something or somethings, to bring home.
There were even a couple that got away… ; /
And we are on our way home, with all our pillows in tow….
And Nic was a little worse for the trip…..
Some of the wonderful cuisine we sampled.
Still gagging on one of these desserts, hint it’s not the pretty ones!
And of course, the wine!
Somehow I feel like I was there. 8) Looks like a fabulous trip ladies, minus the danishes!
