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 […]



Pepper’s Wandering Jew

Posted by mrssmythe on June 2, 2015 in On the Home Front, Pepper's Lens, Science & Technology, Tag Sale-ing |

Last summer, when Pepper and I were deep into tag sale-ing, we came across a sale where a woman was offering plants alongside her no-longer-needed household items. Intrigued, Pepper dropped three dollars for an interesting specimen with sparkly leaves.
