With the uber-amazing Brimfield Antiques Fair kicking off this week in nearby Sturbridge, Massachusetts, I’m feeling inspired to do some antique hunting of my own. May is the season of tag sales, and they’re especially worthwhile in Westchester, where you might score a pair of Eames chairs or a vintage Chanel purse at a local estate sale.
I can’t say that the finds will be as sexy at these Westchester tag sales, but I can promise the thrill of the hunt. Plus, picking up a little something for your little one won’t cost more than a few bucks. Here are some of the 7 biggest tag and estate sales this May in the region.
