Show Comment - September 11, 2015
In spite of the rain yesterday and this morning, this Show promises to be
on-par with the May 2016 Show, the largest show of all time with 20,000
dealers and over 230,000 visitors throughout the week.
So far, the crowds have been large, but the record-setting will occur over
the weekend, (if it does), with a gorgeous day forecast on Saturday.
Sunday will see showers ending around 9:00 AM, and these two days should
turn out to be a good day for deals, depending upon the dealer:
the dealer bet that Saturday will be the high turnout day with great
weather - and he'll sell lots of items and not worry about Sunday... or
will the dealer be in it for the long haul through Sunday hoping the
weather clears... Its certainly true, that no matter what happens on
Saturday or Sunday, you'll get a deal. Dealers just don't want to
pack up and carry home all that stuff, (which btw - some of it they
purchased at the opening on Monday!). Nope! Come Saturday, get
your best deal, but if you spot that must-have, go for it. It may or
may not be there on Sunday, and same with the dealer. While
the best deals can certainly be had later on Saturday, you risk losing it
to someone willing to pay the dealer's price. Its risky. We
always purchase what we "must-have", and leave the nice-to-haves' for the
Anyway, have a GREAT WEEKEND everyone, it should be
STELLAR! Get your last antiques-fix for the year today and tomorrow
only... till 2016!
Post Show Comment - May 18, 2015
It's OFFICIAL! THE BIGGEST SHOW EVER! ---
Well, if you were there, its not news to you...
this past opening (May) Show was the largest show and most well attended
Show ever - by visitors and Dealers. We spoke to a number
of dealers throughout the Show at various times, and the various dealers
we spoke to agreed that business was better than ever, that visitors were
more plentiful than ever. and that more dealers were participating than
ever before. It was obvious from the Main Street Crawl that everyone
was having a great time, and equally obvious that the Show's physical
parameters have expanded even further beyond the typical Show boundaries
than ever before. The Brimfield Show is a GREAT EVENT, and clearly -
every one wants to get in on a good thing!. Gone are the days when
you could leisurely cover the Show in a day. You might -still- be
able to see everything in one day, but it wouldn't be leisurely, and you
would be -exhausted- from trying! (We know, we've tried it!).
All of this is very good news for Promoters, Visitors and Dealers.
Back in the late '90s with the increased popularity of eBay, many said
the Shows were doomed to extinction, but the decades since have proven the
doom-sayers wrong, thankfully. Its really a great, safe, fun family
event and we here at Brimfieldshow.com and Brimfieldshow.org are thrilled
to be a small part of it!
We have one caution to mention for the
upcoming July Show: for
visitors that come to Brimfield via Rt 19 from Warren: PLEASE be
sure you follow the speed limits; the police (state and local) have
rightly been very active on Rt 19 in Brimfield. Residents are lucky
if they can get away with warnings; and out-of-towners... well, lets just
say, your contribution to the town might be larger than anticipated if you
are over the speed limit. We live on that
road, so we do know from experience of what we speak!
We continue to receive requests from dealers and
vendors looking for info on setting up booths, but it bears repeating:
the Promoters are responsible for making all vendor arrangements in their
see a list of Promoters and contact info here.
Brimfieldshow.com and Brimfieldshow.org remain an independent broker of honest info and opinion
about the show - we have no financial interests in, or loyalties to any
parties involved with the show; we stand alone in that premise, and we
exist to serve only ---YOU, the Show Visitors. That's why all
the features are free - free classifieds, free bulletin board, free shoutbox, free dealer database. Please patronize and support our
advertisers who make this site possible - we appreciate your mentioning
this site when you do!
We're looking forward to The Show, and to
seeing you there for the next Show, July 14 - 19!
Feel free to send us any
questions or photos, we'll answer your questions and publish the photos!

Post Show Comment - May 2014
were you there last week? Simply the biggest Show in a long-long time, with
an estimated 500,000 visitors over the course of the week. Personally
speaking, its great to see that the likes of eBay and Etsy have only
popularized antiquing and vintage wares, and we'd admit that the Town was
more consistently busy all week long, something we do not usually see. As
always, the crowds were manageable with few reports of trouble, and the Show
remains a top family/friends outing event.
We at Brimfieldshow.com/.org were interviewed for several
national publications, including an article that included Brimfield as one
of the Top 10 (its actually #1) Outdoor Antique Shows in the Country
(actually the world).
The dealers we spoke to indicated
that this was the best May show in
memory, with more than a few comparing
it back to the early era of the Show,
when Gordon Reid began the shows. Again,
speaking from 30 years of personal
experience and observation - this WAS
the largest Show of all time.
The big news for
us, aside from the May Show, is an updated Brimfield Show website.
began Brimfieldshow.com back on March 12, 1998 - 17 years ago - the original
Getting back to the pre-show comment - as usual, and as many of you already
know - it will be difficult - if not impossible, to see the entire Show in
one day. Plan your route and please please please - if you see something
you're interested in for possible purchase later, WRITE DOWN THE
FIELD AND STALL NUMBER We get many questions about ... where
can I find this or that... its almost impossible to track back if you don't
know where you were. OKAY, that's our tip for today.

IMPORTANT TO READ:
One IMPORTANT note of
- PLEASE do NOT park in any unmarked areas. If you park anywhere not
specifically designated as parking along Route 20 or Route 19 - your car
will definitely be towed. If you are picking up an item
you've purchased and have parked on Rt 20, do not leave your car
unattended. Towing of illegally parked cars in town is BIG
Business - fair warning!
Besides, at $8.00 a day you can get
perfect parking in the middle of the show. Why risk it?
