Jackdaw Brocante and Cuisine Tours, while not in France, can be found traveling around the East Coast looking for Antique treasures in the States. Two of the most frequently visited locations are the Elephant’s Trunk Country Flea Market in New Milford, CT and the Brimfield Antique Show in Brimfield, MA.
Elephant’s Trunk Country Flea Market has been home to treasure hunters, antique collectors, deal seekers, farmers and entrepreneurs of all kinds since 1976. The market has grown to over 500 dealers who set up each Sunday on the outdoor field and sell from April through December. Weekly visits are required due to the fact that there is always a mix of old and new vendors bringing merchandise that captivates all the senses! Shopping hours, 4:45 am to 2:00 pm.
The Brimfield Antique Show has been called the largest outdoor antique show in the world, with over 6,000 dealers and 130,000 or more visitors during the course of a week. “The Shows” are comprised of 23 fields and takes place three times a year. “The Shows” begin on Tuesday and run through Sunday.
