Brimfield 2014 – The Loot – Part 2

We’ve showed you the books, the jewelry, and the metal-ware.  Now it’s time for everything else.  It’s amazing how much great stuff we got that was SO inexpensive.  It’s also amazing that we’re going to be able to fit it all in 3 posts.

Brimfield 2014 – the bizarre & the geeky

I guess we’re continuing with the theme

I was reading an article on about a rather inspired prank pulled by the graduating class at a local high school when this link at the bottom of the article caught my eye.  It was one of those, “if you’re reading this article then you’ll like this one too!” type of things.
