This was blooming upon my return. It's called a Flowering Almond My friend Lucas came over today and we divided a bunch of this for him. He rolled out of here with about 40 iris plants too, we are over run! The Almond is my favorite and only has flowers for about a week. I just love the color.
Below is the gal everyone was looking for before the show opened...She sells coffee drinks and snacks out of this cart. She probably has that cage to protect her from hungry dealers who have not had any coffee yet.
Pretty painstakingly hand made sailors valentines and paintings below by Nancy walker of Little Compton, Rhode Island. What incredible work. She's also an accomplished painter.
This is Nancy's daughter and my friend Susan, she sells lots of amazing vintage and antique jewelry and Danish modern stuff too. Those are some more of Nancy's paintings in the background.
Above is my view from inside my tent. Check out those giant antique doors across the way. It dried up pretty quickly and Saturday was absolutely gorgeous.
These pretty bags are made by my neighbor, you can look her up on Etsy at http://www.josewsvintagebags.etsy.com/
Her name is Joann Whittemore aka the bag lady of J&J
I wish this picture was more in focus but this is some of the Friday night dinner club. My diagonal neighbors are a great group of guys that all rent a huge tent together. I usually do a lot of shopping in their booth.
This is Jim, a fellow dealer who sets up in another field. That's a depression glass candy dish he's drinking a rum and coke from! Only in Brimfield.
These are shots of my booth
This cute shopper chose to wear the vintage apron she bought from me.
I sell a to a lot of creative people. This lady bought the blue chenille from me and Made patchwork burp cloths for her baby.
Can't wait for the July Show! See you there.
