Brimfield – 2017

Posted by mrssmythe on July 17, 2017 in Out & About, Shopping, Tag Sale-ing |

I finally made it to Brimfield! After ten years of wondering about the giant antiques show that sets up less than hour down the road from us, I cleared my schedule for a day and just went. I took Pepper with me (Ginger hates to shop), and had CPT A drop us off so we […]

Odds and Ends – Plus a Good Book

Posted by mrssmythe on July 29, 2016 in Books, Critters, Family, Shopping, Week in Review |
