Central Park Antique Shows, located in the center of Brimfield’s Antique Mile, is a well-known prime marketplace for antique buyers and collectors. The shows offer an eclectic array of diversified antiques and collectibles showcased by dealers who are knowledgeable and eager to share their expertise. Thousands of items can be browsed, handled, examined and potentially purchased as an investment, for resale or for sentimental reasons.
Central Park is the home of Brimfield Country Roads, a celebration of Americana presented by expert historians who are dedicated to promoting the awareness of the history of our culture through artifacts remaining from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Customers no longer have to search the vastness of Brimfield to find isolated examples of primitive offerings. Brimfield Country Roads, born in 2011, now numbers 20 authentic country dealers, representing the largest grouping of its kind in Brimfield.
In sharp contrast to Americana, buyers can immerse themselves in the Mid-Century Modern enclave of dealers who feature an unparalleled inventory of the refined and simple beauty of modern furniture and unique decorative objects of art from the 50’s kitsch to the 80’s post modern. Dealers are up to date on current trends and cutting edge designs.
Creative repurposing is well-established at Central Park where vintage items have been rescued and transformed into one-of-a-kind wearable fashions, home decor and fun art objects. A funky old seed corn sack is now a “gotta have it” designer handbag; unwanted silver plated spoons have been transformed into majestic rings, necklaces and bracelets; cast-off chenille bedspreads re-appear as children’s clothing, toy bears and bunnies. Watch the artist paint whimsical chickens on salvaged barn board, treat yourself to hand-dyed 1950’s dresses, jackets and shirts or perhaps make yourself a flower using Depression glass and don’t forget the lighting fixtures uniquely made from old farming implements.
Central Park is a one stop shopping adventure for buyers and collectors looking for buttons, vintage linen, Fiestaware, ephemera, jewelry, furniture, toys, fine art, African art, animal hides, Depression glass, pottery, vintage fashions, advertising, industrial items plus the rare and the unusual in all genres.
