BRIMFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – For the next five days, people from all over the country and world will flock to the Brimfield Antique Show for some interesting finds.
Vendors coming from across the country will be in Brimfield selling unique items. The show says they’er the oldest outdoor antique show in America.
22News spoke to Michael Albanese from outside of Rochester, New York who’s been selling civil war items and more for 40 years. He might have the oldest item in the whole show.
“A Mammoth tooth which is 10,000 years old. It’s $1,500. I actually got it at a state auction of a collector.”Michael Albanese
Michael also has a single shot cannonball from 1863 that was shot by the Confederates during the Civil War. He’s one of over 140 vendors that Lee Adams and his step-son Robert Keith rent space to in their field, Quaker Acres, for the show.
Keith said the most expensive item he’s seen sold was a $35,000 pool table. His family has owned the land since around the time when the show started in the 1960’s.
“It’s their business so we just try to help them. We tend to have the same people that come each show and they like it here,” said Keith.
If you can’t make it to the show this month, it happens again in September.
