SO WHAT IS THE BRIMFIELD SHOW??? Well, it's the largest outdoor antique show in the world, held since 1959 in Brimfield, Massachusetts and in May a place I meet up with friends to shop and play. This is an annual event for Heidi, Cathy and myself. My goal is to hit all 100 acres of fields in the 4 days we are there...
After years of searching, Heidi is now the proud owner of a Steiff Studio Kangaroo.
Today's amazing find was 50 yards of antique bunting. But you can't hide from my schedule:>
It's finally time to leave the fields for the day, have dinner and work on the next days schedule!
Two days after returning from Brimfield we had a house fire, Hope to be able to return home by Christmas..I am just so happy we shipped Heidi's Kangaroo before she flew home!
I've been the proprietress of Collins Gifts for the past 25 years. I love my job!
Throughout the years I've had the pleasure of promoting and selling the most amazing dolls, teddy bears and folk art.
It's an honor to work with so many wonderful artists and a pleasure to offer their art to my fabulous collectors. It's so rewarding after all these years doing what I love, with many more to come, that I now call many of the artists and collectors I've met on this journey my friends.
When I'm not on the road at a show or promoting one of my doll and teddy bear shows in Portsmouth, NH.............my day dreaming passion is photography.
My camera, custom made for this daydreaming girl, is always at the ready and I am on the never ending quest for the perfect vista. Being an avid photographer since elementary school, I now have old suitcases filled with photographs and drawers and drawers over flowing with discs.
I hope you feel welcome here, as I share new treasures at Collins Gifts and my adventures in photography.
