Jugs, and Crocks, are some of my favorite collections. Years ago my niece Debbie and I would get up early the first Friday in May and head off to Brimfield, MA for the outdoor antique flea market.
We would be prepared for an kind of weather....plastic bags for our feet in case of rain and mud (which in the spring we would most often encounter). Slickers to protect our bodies, layers of clothing underneath, and gloves in case our hands got cold. Sometimes it would be extremely cold and wet, other times we would shed most all the layers so that we could stand the blazing sun. And still at other times the wind would have the dealers running to protect their wares and hold down the tents for the wind would all but carry everything away.
This antique market is held out in open fields, we would walk miles and miles looking at all different style antiques.....depression glass, yellow-ware, trunks, firkin's, pantry boxes, primitive chairs and my very favorite .... jugs and crocks. We would repeat the process in the Fall, which is our favorite time of year, and we usually had better weather. I say usually because you just never knew.
