Brimfield Antique Shows
During a handful of allotted days in May, July, and September, the population of little Brimfield swells from 3,500 to a mind-blowing 130,000. Brimfield is the rock star of antiques markets. Martha Stewart marks it on her calendar, and customers come from the four corners to ogle and buy. Roughly 6,000 dealers pack more than 20 fields along both sides of Route 20 in south-central Massachusetts for nearly a mile, making this show the ultimate flirt when it comes to temptation: Happi­ness at every price. Or half price. Or make me an offer.
