My small company has decided to make an outing of Brimfield on Sunday the 11th. We're breaking our staff and spouses into 2-3 teams. We're giving each team about $150 with which they have to buy three items per team. Each team will be reselling their items on eBay after the show. The team who makes the most profit (or least negative loss) wins. This is very similar to the show "Bargain Hunt" on BBC America with David Dickinson as the host.
Questions: How late do most vendors stay on Sunday (the last day)? Is there a smart place to park our vehicles? (We're planning to carpool in as few vehicles as possible.) Would anybody be willing to volunteer to be a shopping guide for each of our teams? Lunch is on us.

Vendors leave at varying times. Best bet - start early. Many parking areas are free on Sunday; try to park more or less in the center of the market - you'll have to cover a lot of ground, so parking in a central location is best. I'd be pleased to act as a guide for one of your teams. Contact me off list at my private e-mail account. I'll be out of contact through Friday the 9th, but will catch up on mail Saturday the 10th.
