The lamp is from Ikea and the orange bowl was a gift. I only have the following information about the candle sticks: I love them they are mine. They were also found at Brimfield.
My mom actually found the cart at a consignment shop in Grand Rapids, Michigan and she just KNEW it belonged in our house.
She is very very wise. And generous.
Here's my Brimfield advice for mid-century design seekers:
- There are a few dealers who specialize in mid-century modern items, but the larger portion of mid-century items will be scattered in a booth that doesn't appear to be focused on mid-century items. It's all about the hunt.
- There are really no bargains to be had at Brimfield: these are serious dealers, and they know what they have. That being said, don't insult them by not asking for a better price. But remember: if you offer a price and they accept it, you don't get to change your mind. YOU BETTER PULL OUT YOUR CASH. I may have learned this lesson the hard way. I may have been yelled at and chased down.
- Brimfield runs from Tuesday to Sunday. I highly recommend going on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. Early. On Tuesday and Wednesday, booths will assume you are a dealer and give you a decent (but not ridiculously low) price. Also? There are TONS of free fields open those mornings. You can walk for 6 hours both mornings and not see everything.
- Generally, the quality of the items in 'free' fields is slightly lower or more hit-and-miss than fields you pay to get into. But I've found some GREAT pieces in non-paying fields.
- EARLY. Go early. Seriously. For the 'paying' fields, if the field opens at 9:00? Get in line at 8:30.
- There ARE great mid-century furniture pieces, but very very few are in good condition. Think: leather falling apart, layers of paint, etc.
I hope this is helpful! Maybe I'll see you at the July or September shows?
