romantique honeymoon

Seriously, I have the best husband ever.  Not only did he agree to spend a good portion of our honeymoon antiquing our way through Brimfield but he actually loved it as much as I did!

I had to laugh the first day when we parked at 9 am and the guy told us the lot closed at 7 pm.  Yes, I actually laughed because I thought we’d never spend that long at the market.  Well, here we are returning to our truck at 6 pm.  The last vehicle in our area.  Yup, we spent about 9 hours shopping that day!  My kind of romance.

Let me just tell you, this trip was everything I’ve always dreamed of.  Ok, I guess I imagined a honeymoon in a Tuscan villa at some point in my life but in reality Brimfield was better.  Way better.

How you ask?  Loads and loads of vintage, antiques, junk and just down right cool people hauling tons of old junk.

We had zero agenda and that was the best plan we could’ve made.  Everyone we met led us to a great restaurant, park or shop.  A dealer named Tracy from Fresh Vintage Mercantile gave us her dinner reservation that she couldn’t attend at a fabulous (and booked) sushi restaurant in town which we were clueless about.  We also got this great sign from her that I posted on facebook last week.

We met dealers, Sherry and Paul, who celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary the same day we got married.  They even gave us a little vintage gift!  We purchased these handmade grapevine trellises from them.  That’s Sherry and me…and a random photo bomber.

As we pulled into town the first day, I was basically hyperventilating, shrieking “Stop the car! Stop the car!” when I saw all of the goodness that Brimfield had to offer.

And the food…omigoodness the food is pure fair food heaven.  Actually, there’s nothing pure about it.  All junk.

I could keep going with the stories but I’m sure you’d rather see the eye candy!

Some couples spend their honeymoon in an all inclusive tropical island.  Not us.

  4. We live in Maryland and one year we went all three times! I just realized that we are going to be in Cape Cod during the September show….I feel a road trip coming on.
