adamstown

You know it’s a good year when you honeymoon in Brimfield and celebrate your birthday in Adamstown.  That’s like the Disney World and Disney Land equivalent to us east coast antiquers.  Side note, I have never been to Disney and I don’t really care as long as I can continue to jaunt to Brimfield and Adamstown annually.

Yep, I turned the big 3-1 last weekend.  On Small Business Saturday no less.  It was no circus like my 30th.  (Maybe you recall the circus themed party we threw last year.  Good times.)

However, it was perfect.  Just about a mile stretch of antique shop after antique shop and no real agenda but to meander the aisles and look for treasures!

I brought home a couple of keepers including a double-sided rear bike basket.  I actually passed up the opportunity to buy one of these a few months ago and was kicking myself.  It was the “one that got away” for sure.  Lo and behold, I found it again and this time for 1/3 less!  It is already stationed on a junky bike in the newly excavated garden bursting with holiday greens.  Now I am on a quest to find an equally cagey basket for the front of the bike by spring.

I also scored a few new-to-me frocks including a retro plaid Pendleton dress that I will be wearing this Christmas.  #lumberjack

And a cute US Navy cardigan.  It was probably part of a suit.  Perhaps a lady administrator wore it with a navy pencil skirt. So cute.

It was a good day!
