This Week: Brimfield U.S.

Julie Fernstrom’s Brimfield continues to win press accolades, but did you know Fernstrom also owns a shop located a few blocks north on a stretch of Clark Street near home retailers Room Service and Roost? Brimfield U.S. offers a similar line of products as the Brimfield mother shop due south, so be sure to pay a visit if you like tartan upholstery, vintage goods and mid-century style. I suggest setting aside an entire day in Andersonville, starting off with brunch at M. Henry or Taste of Heaven (the Katie’s Cakes are happiness on a plate and the Breakfast Burrito is reliably good eats) before shopping the day away. But be forewarned that Andersonville gets in your head. It starts innocently enough, but it’s really quite insidious (the Swedish influence no doubt). You might take Clark even though it’s not convenient – just to drive by the pretty windows. Next thing you know you’re living on Summerdale. Or one of the other Dale’s. It’s true. I know a guy who knows a guy whose cousin found himself in that exact situation. OK, it was me.
