I am really thrilled and excited to be able
to share some exclusive pics from my
"gal in the field" at The Brimfield Antique Show,
She has been generous enough to share
some of her photos with me to share
with all of you, as well as news about
a great giveaway she has going on right now.
Jackie: Brimfield update...It was hot and dusty setting up today,
but we got there early and breezed right in. Here is a pic of the booth in progress.
Jackie also has a fascinating story to acccompany
this particularly sweet find...
Jackie: This is from the Dealers Choice at Brimfield,
It is of a desk, the second is of something I discovered
when I opened the drawer of the desk...written in ink:
"Jim Leary, Bell Hop, Marsden House,
Alex Bay, NY,
Seasons 1920, 1221, 1922"
Jackie: Little discoveries like this are why I'm in this business...
the thought of a young man, Jim Leary, spending his summer as a bell hop
in Alexandria Bay in the early 1920's!
Think of it, the beginning of the roaring twenties!
I'll bet he had a ball...I wonder if he's still alive? He'd be in his 90's now...
Jackie: First time Brimfield vendor who did a fireplace surround
and mantle with mosaics-I love the look.
She also upcycles old kerosene heaters
with light bulbs-they cast great shadows.
Generous Jackie is also hosting a giveaway,
and catch a gander at what she's offering up...
She procured this lovely oil on board painting
in the South of France.
just become a follower of her divine blog,
As for me, I'll be living vicariously through my
beautiful and well traveled friend!
