Brimfield – Antique custom decor shop

Antique and custom decor is the name of the game here. Brimfield has custom pieces of furniture and unique tchotchkes that I can look at for hours. The tastefully cluttered store even creates decorative displays to showcase their items. Around Christmas the displays get better, like a decorated small boat inside the store.

I really like antique wooden trinkets and this place is packed to the brim with them. A lot of the pieces are custom but are also repurposed. They sell large handmade wooden tables that are definitely a centerpiece to a room. Small items also abound like holiday decorations and classic American home décor.

A classic lawn game is my favorite piece from the store. My family has played croquet for as long as I can remember, perfect on a summer day. At Brimfield, I found a beautiful wooden set that has history and style. It was gently used and refurbished to a great condition. This is the kind of thing that you can’t find anywhere else.

As a warning I will say that the items here are pricey. Whether it’s a plaid blanket or antique lamp from the 1960s, it can cost a pretty penny.

Brimfield is a great place to grab a gift for someone, fill your home with some unique decor or just look around and experience Americana. Brimfield itself is an experience.
