I love going to Brimfield Antique show. I love , love , love it! There is a show in May, July and Sept. The May date this year is the 11th - 16th, mark your calenders.

Today I will share some of the treasures I have found there and show you how I use them in my work.

How can you resist these buttons? In the beginning I use to buy so many , but lately I managed to get just the really special ones that has the right colour and shape and interest. Most of these end up in my pins , but i do l do get a chance to use them on the hats and scarfs too.
Spot the red button
In the photo you can see more of the buttons used in Fabric brooches.
Needless to say, you can find much more that buttons! This last year I found these fabulous wooden trays. I now use one of them for a work in progress tray.
I have also fallen in love with vintage bed linen. I got a lovely pillowcase that says "hers' . I also buy a lot of trim form a vendor that has not only an amazing display but unbelievable trim.
I wonder how many of you love going and if you have never been this should be the year to go! There is so much inspiration, everywhere.


  1. Lovely! I missed it last year, but DEFINITELY have it marked on my calendar this time. Can't wait! Are there any specific spots/vendors you recommend? That place is huge!

  2. I like Nifty Thrifty Dry Goods. I believe they have a web page and for vintage linen try Dustys vintage.
    They are close together. But I have to say the great finds are always in a bin somewhere for you to find!
    Have fun.
    ps remember to wear a hat!

  3. I've never been, but have always wanted to go. Maybe this will be the year! ; )
