BRIMFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Tuesday was “Day One” of the season’s first Brimfield Antique Show.
People come from all over to browse at the antique show, or to try and find that one hidden treasure.
Bill Roads, from New York City, told 22News, “I enjoy it, I guess that’s the fun part you just see so many unique things. I saw a 1965 Beatles ticket that was pretty cool that was from Shea Stadium that hadn’t been used.”
One vendor, who has been part of the Brimfield Antique Show for nearly 20 years, told 22News how this flea market has evolved over time.
“Its definitely a change because of the internet I think things are changing because people aren’t shopping flea markets like they used to but the good thing on a positive note because of social media, Instagram and so on, a lot of people are started to find it,” Michael Merisola said.
