it was my birthday, going to that show is always my best present...i got some things for myself too, a painting, a wonderful tramp art box, and probablay one of the bugs. they are so cool...im hoping to put one on the roof of our building, it would go with our tinman so well....

Great photos of all of your goodies. Sounds like you had a fun and successful trip. I love to go to shows like that. I'm in CT so I go to Brimfield whenever I can.
