The Brimfield Antique Fair is chock-full of curiosities, and there truly is something for everyone there. The recurring theme that we noticed spanned all décor styles was upcycled or repurposed goods. We saw plenty of lamps, planters, frames, and jewelry whose pieces had been salvaged from items that had outlived their intended use. Even worn doll parts had been combined with other vintage items like clocks or old tins to create mixed media art pieces Check out some of the finds we spotted during our treasure hunting trip.
