After meeting Julie Fernstrom at the Chicago Antique Market earlier this summer, I couldn’t wait to visit her brick and mortar store, Brimfield, on my next trip to Chicago.
I can imagine hanging this in my bathroom, the bathroom of my bomb shelter. A curated set of blue botbins. Stewart Tartan Upholstery. Vintage Scotch Tape. Vampire Weekend, gave us Yacht Rock. Brimfield brings Yacht Bone China.
Talk about all plaidout. If you find yourself in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood, stop by Brimfield, say “hi” to Julie for me, and get inspired.
