Hot temperatures thin crowds at Brimfield Antique Show

Posted: Updated:

Bargain hunters descend on Brimfield three times a year for an antique show that takes over the town.

"I specialize in marbles, foreign paper money , post cards some tools as well as license plates,” says Martin Pullion, Martin’s Antiques.

For the last fifty years the show has pulled crowds of thousands of thrifters in search of a great deal and one of a kind items. Yet this week has been quiet. 

"The July show is usually a little bit slower a little more relaxed," says David Schultz, owner of the Brimfield Barn.

This month's show featured many dealers, some who traveled from other countries to share their unique and handmade items. Many store owners say that the lighter crowds mean better savings for shoppers. 

"It's a tough one but it's not one to miss because there are great deals here. It's the time to get stuff at rock bottom prices. The dealers really want to let go and make room for the September shows,” says Martin.

The show continues on Sunday, and will pick up again in September.
