Welcome to Brimfield 2013

We’re suckers for pretty much any shopping opportunity. Now add a market filled with one-of-a-kind antiques as far as the eye can see, bartering shoppers, and a poshed-out VIP tent to catch your breath in between deal-making, and you can call this utopia. Here’s a glimpse inside.

Check Out: The VIP Tent
Serving as a refuge from the outdoor bustle, this is the kind of tent we can really get behind (sleeping bags, bugs, and campfires totally optional).



Check Out: The Bar
Interior designer Shane Inman used Benjamin Moore paint to line the insides of the hundreds of bottles that adorn the bar. Who knew – all it takes to energize a space is a little color (okay, a lot of color).

Check Out: Benjamin Moore & Robert Allen
Shane used products and images from fellow partners Benjamin Moore and Robert Allen to set the stage for a cushy and relaxing VIP outpost. From designers and home bloggers to fellow fashion lovers, these areas offer a stylish escape for everyone to congregate, get off their feet, and talk about their finds from the day (complimentary jars of M&M’S® are a nice pick-me-up, too).

Reclaimed light fixtures. Who needs new lighting when a spool of rope is lying around? Talk about a conversation piece.


Tissue-paper flowers resemble rows of giant hydrangea. Finally, something to do with all that recycled wrapping paper.


One of the seating areas from within the tent. There’s just something about bright colors and expert pattern-mixing that makes a room feel like home.
