Each week of the Brimfield Antique Fair, I am reminded of what I love so much about this business and the people in it...
Whether it's the dealer in the tent next door offering a helping hand to lift a heavy item, or watching your booth while you run to the restroom, everyone supports one another. It's a genuine support, with nothing expected in return, but the simple understanding of what goes around comes around.
From antique linens to mid century furniture and everything in between, each dealer is passionate about what they buy and sell. Each piece carefully picked, something not just to sell but to add to a collection.
Everybody works so hard, but also takes time to have fun. At the end of the day, despite rain, and lack of sleep there is time for a BBQ on the field, or a dinner date with fellow dealers.
These simple traits re-assure me that I made the right career choice!!
