Antiques And Collectibles: July Auctions(7/25/08)
With most of our partner auction houses taking a much needed hiatus from their busy antiques-and-collectibles auction schedules, it’s a time for reflection and to review some of the auctions that have been highlighted in past columns. Let’ focus on the sales results from Freeman’s June 22 fine-art auction where several items were featured.
Brimfield: A Tiny Town, An Antiques Mecca(7/23/08) It is a small town like many other small towns. A main street that is only a mile long without even a stoplight along the way. Small mom-and-pop stores and a fast-food place just outside the town limit. Population about 5,000 or so. That is Brimfield, Mass., most days. However, for one week in May, July and September, Brimfield becomes “The Nation’s Antiques Capital.”
