Veronica and I made it back out to Brimfield for another walk through the miles and miles of antiques and collectibles. Well, this was my second trip of this session, her first since she sat out the cold muddy Tuesday.
The weather this time around was absolutely beautiful, which explained the four mile backup on Route 20 in Brimfield— thankfully I was using WAZE to get me to the show and it calculates in traffic conditions so it had me take a right at Rovezzi’s Restaurant and go up and around Brimfield Road bringing me into the edge of town and avoiding any traffic at all.
We parked at the same spot I did on Tuesday and walked to the show. There was a lot of great stuff I’d missed the first time around. I picked up a stuffed Batman doll from 1966 (from the original owner no less) and a little tin Buddha figure. We grabbed a lemonade about halfway through at Dad’s Stand— great stuff there and then we stopped at a nearby outdoor Cafe offering boiled potatoes— I had a Russet one with Cranberry Orange Jelly and Pecans while Vero got a traditional Sweet Potato. Potatoes seem to be the new craze as several vendors were offering them. They were big in Japan when we were there four years ago so I wonder if, like Sushi, they’ll eventually take a foothold here.
I loved the graphics on this near mint BULLWINKLE lunch box— $85 seemed like a good deal but I passed since I don’t need more stuff.
I liked this quirky mood doll too— you spun him around depending on your mood. I guess it’s good to put in your office cubicle so that people know to leave you alone.
The weather stayed with us, overcast for much of it with temps around the mid 50s which is perfect Andy Weather, a bit later into the day the clouds parted and it got warmer into the mid 60s which is perfect Veronica weather.
We managed about 12,000 steps which is a little over five miles and got to spend it together and in the fresh air which is a refreshing break from our usual work day.
We were home by 2:45 and we worked until about 5:45 where we left for dinner with some new found family at The UxLocale in Uxbridge.
