A while ago, I went to Brimfield’s largest outdoor antique show (in the world!!). I collected a lot of source material video, no one seemed to mind, as there were too many customers to help. Taking video really helped me resist buying anything. The antique dealers and vendors really worked hard. At the end of each day they packed up anything they could to close up shop and presumably to prevent theft.
There were some amazing things there–great furniture, furs, and even miniature portrait jewelery boxes! Even stranger–stalls of hand and foot mannequins. The food stands were really great too.
I’m going to use the video as part of my apartment auction video, which will happen as soon as I live somewhere on my own. It’s likely that this will be in South Korea, in December.
