The first Brimfield Antique Show of the year didn’t feel particularly rich with alpine artifacts – but was great fun nonetheless.  I rounded up some of the usual small finds:  vintage photos, postcards, magazines.

The score of the day was a late 1930’s brochure for The New Haven Railroad Snow Trains illustrated by famed artist Sascha Maurer.  (Maurer is best known for ski posters and credited with creating the Stowe “flying S” logo.)  The brochure is in pristine condition with vibrant color and essentially gives me two mini posters – I am thrilled!

See you in September, Brimfield. . .

Vintage Ski Pants

01081©anapolitano2012I love when vintage is worn as legit gear – a fully integrated and functional part of a kit – rather than a novelty.  This guy is rocking his mom’s old ski pants (really) and ready to shred!
