Typically, when I'm shopping at a flea market, I'll walk through the space once to get an overall sense of the items available for sale and then do a second run to spend more time with specific vendors that caught my attention. However, at Brimfield, I was forced to ditch this tried-and-true plan just because it's massive. There was no way I'd come back to a vendor a second time, so if there was an item I had to have, I just purchased it on the spot. And don't forget to negotiate. To this point, I even saw a vendor with a sign that read, "Prices subject to change based on your personality." So you get the idea. Dish out the charm, and you might land yourself an amazing deal. It's all part of the fun.
I've been on the hunt for a side table that goes beyond the standard wood options you'll find in stores, and I'm delighted to report that I found it. It's a pedestal made of alabaster, and the height and details make it the perfect option for resting magazines or beverages. Check back soon for more images from my Brimfield trip.
