• Lighthouse Service Antiques at the Brimfield Antiques Show

    Posted on May 12, 2012 by in Uncategorized

    This week we again made our way to the famous Brimfield Antiques Show – A sure sign of spring. Since the 1960′s we have rarely missed a season (The show is held for ten days each in May, July and September each year.). Each show hosts tens of thousands of antique dealers over a one mile stretch of Route 20. Over 250,000 buyers spend the ten days searching for those items that they collect. Literally anything that you want to find can be found here. For myself, I look for Lighthouse Service, Life-Saving Service and early Coast Guard items. This week I was fortunate to find a wonderful album of early c.1880′s photographs and an early porcelain Lighthouse Service sign. I always come back with something great, and if I don’t, it is well worth the time enjoying the weather, talking (and haggling) with the antique dealers, and listening to others doing the same in a number of languages (Folks come from all over the globe to visit these shows each year. To see a few of the items that I found this trip, take a look at our Recent Additions page on our web site.
