I went to Brimfield and all I got was this pot
And this lamp:
Really, I wanted a pair of lamps the same shape but slightly smaller for the bedside tables in our master bedroom. (Already have the shades; thanks, Anthropologie sale section!) I love the low, squat shape of the vase but I don't think it's old or anything. The pot is a potential gateway drug to more copper kitchen vessels (they look good with our copper countertops and pendant lights) but I want to dip a toe in the water first and see whether and how much I like using it.
Brimfield was weird: not too many really high quality items. There was something I liked a lot (cast glass furniture legs) but they turned out to be sold (but not marked as such, so I wasted time debating making an offer). There was a darling late 19th century original tapestry-upholstered loveseat but we don't have anywhere to put it (unfortunately a bit big for the front entryway). We almost found a mirror for the front entryway but it wasn't totally and utterly perfect. And so it went. My husband and I still had a fun time and lots of good eats. I like going there so much better with company.
