Classic Seaside Accessories from The Brimfield Fair

Sail away at Brimfield Fair

One of our favorite things to do is peruse thrift stores, vintage shops and antique shows for coveted treasures from (or inspired by) the sea. And we have quite a collection growing! However, there’s always room for more. That’s why our second favorite thing to do is to shop finds put up for sale by other savvy scavengers. And it just so happens we heard from a new friend yesterday who found some adorable belt buckles from the Brimfield Fair.

Designer and boutique owner of The Pink Pineapple, Stacie Hall was fortunate to find these buckles –  one spells out “SAIL” and the other is a Whale buckle that says “Save the Whales”  ($38 each, buckle only). She is making them available in her store but tells us there is a limited supply – only about a dozen of each.  These will be available online today, but you better hurry!

We can’t wait to hear what other treasures folks find at this May’s  Brimfield Fair. For those of you not familiar. The Brimfield Fair is a very popular antiques fair held a few times a year in Massachussetts. It is thought to be “one of the top three flea markets” in the U.S., according to Frommers. A tradition since 1959, more than 700 exhibitors offer their wares. The Brimfield Fair opens to the public this weekend, starting at 8am Friday ($5 admission fee) and continues Saturday (free admission).  If you can’t make it this weekend, no worries, you can try again in July and September. In the meantime, thanks to Stacie Hall for giving the rest of us an opportunity to scoop up one of her great finds!
