On Saturday, I headed out to Brimfield, Massachusetts to check out the thrice-a-year Brimfield Antique Show. The Brimfield Antiques Show is the largest outdoor antiques show in the world, with over 6,000 dealers and 130,000+ visitors over the course of the week.

I didn’t really know what to expect other than a ton of people and a ton of things for sale. There was every sort of vendor present; from antiques, crafts, memorabilia, vintage clothing, type, and even restored outboard boat motors. One of the vendors I was chatting with was talking about fashion designers sending people to Brimfield to grab clothing as inspiration for new pieces. He said he talked to people from Japan, Sweden and France on opening day.

The weather on Saturday was beautiful and I walked around the entire show in a few hours, admittedly skipping whole sections because there was simply too much ground to cover. I’ll let the photos above do the talking when it comes to what I saw at the show, so flip through them.

The next installment is September 2-7, but be advised that if you want to see the whole show at once, go toward the end of the show as the opening of certain sections is staggered. More info on the official site.

Lucas Confectionery and Brown’s Brewing on WAMC

Vic and Heather from The Confectionery as well as Kelly, Greg and Paul from Brown’s Brewing joined WAMC to talk about their operations. Heather gives you a great background and insight into the process and ideas behind their businesses. Vic talks a bit about the seemingly widespread adaptive reuse of the buildings in downtown Troy. Greg and Paul chat about the success of Brown’s Brewing, the location, and craft beer.

Set aside the 20 minutes and give the segment a listen.
