Ever wish you could go flea marketing with a real expert — someone who scours the shows constantly and knows how to zero in on the best stuff? Martha Stewart Editorial Director Kevin Sharkey is that person, and so are his fellow editors and colleagues. They all headed up to the Brimfield Antique Show last week and brought back a van full of good finds, which they've shared online…Clicking through Kevin's slideshow of treasures, you can see a true stylist's eye at work. There are some very "Martha-ish" pieces in the mix, including an antique ironstone bowl, a set of hefty brass scoops, and a group of brass vases — we can already see them in a magazine piece on flower arranging!
The Brimfield Antique Show — held several times every spring/summer in Brimfield, Massachusetts — is one of the largest in the country, with over 6,000 vendors. If you're interested in going, the next market takes place July 12-17, 2011.
