“Brimfield Flea Market”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

A great day hiking the fair grounds and we saw maybe 1/4 of the total show.Bring water, sun screen, and plan your day around the fried dough, hot dog, and beer stands and you will be fine.

“The Best Show I have Attended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Even though the weather did not cooperate, we still had the best time and found tons of treasures! The quality and quanity of merchandise was extraordinary! We were there from early Wednesday until Sunday morning and loved every minute! The dealers were easy to deal with and the Food Court had some of the best food on our trip! Really! Lobster dinner for $20. Parking was a bit expensve and water @$2 per bottle most places, so pack your own if you can. We paid entrance to Mays and J&J, but there are lots of fields that are free. A cart or wagon also helps carry purchases around, we found a dealer selling carts and then we sold it when we were done for the same price, $15. I can't wait to return next year!

“Excellent Antique Show. The hunt is fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

At this show you really have to hunt to find the bargains, but they can be found. It just takes patience. It is a great show and you will probably see things that you have never seen before, and just for that it is worth going. You also have a a lot of food choices from food trucks to actual restaurants. A lot of the Vendors do,take credit cards, but still don't forget your cash.

“So many things you didn't know you needed.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

The Brimfield Antique Show is held three times a year - Spring, Summer and Fall. I love going to it! It's absolutely amazing to see the variety of stuff that people have spent their lives collecting and putting on display for others to buy. Vintage linens, beaded animal pins, hurricane lamps, salt and pepper shakers... entire booths dedicated to these specific items. It's totally fascinating and the photo opportunities are endless. If you go, I recommend that you park at the beginning of where the show starts - either at the church or behind the red antique house (the folks at the house charge $5 for parking) - this is on the right side as you are heading up Rt. 20 W. If you go in the summer, bring lots of water with you. Lots of good food to buy, too - fair food, salads, lobster, smoothies, beer.... ENJOY!

“What fun! Hot, but fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

My husband and I had never been to the Brimfield antique show. On the spur of the moment we decided to go . It was very hot, but we had a blast. We were there almost all week and found several things to. buy.I collect real photo postcards that are hand tinted from France from the early 1900's.There was a whole building dedicated to postcards as well as many post card venders in the various fields.I loved getting there early and talking to the venders , buying some postcards , and retreating to the postcard building in the afternoon.....it was air-conditioned!!! The food was very good....mango iced tea, veggie burgers as well as lobster rolls, barbecued pork, burgers etc. quite good food really.We stayed at a local B and B in Wales, about 10 minutes away. Really had a lot of fun!
