Early October KANE COUNTY FLEA MARKET...

I love going to the KANE COUNTY FLEA MARKET in St. Charles, Illinois... Unfortunately it's almost a 3 hour drive for me dealing with the "Chicago" traffic & road construction... STRESS!!!!! It is sooooo worth it once I get there!!! There are 6 booths I always hit first... These gals have the stuff I love ~ and display it for shopping inspiration... The prices aren't always low ~ but I'll pay the price if the item is unique... Another reason I like going to St. Charles is that my dear friend - Terry, from High School, still lives in the area... Most of the time we can squeeze in some spur of the moment girl friend chit-chat over a cup of coffee before I hit the road back to Wisconsin... Kane County is always the first Sunday of the month and preceding Saturday... Lots of Fall adornments were seen - pumpkins, gourds, mums, bittersweet etc. Even though the weather was cold & rainy - the die-hard sellers/shoppers always show up!!! I netted an AweSome small 3-drawer chippy dresser in the pouring rain... Luckily you can drive in to pick up your purchase...

Terry & Myself with the "chippy dresser"!!! - It has fabulous hardware!!! Hopefully I can get this up to the Antique Shop in the Cedar Creek Settlement before next weekend's ANTIQUE SHOW, here in Cedarburg...


Outdoor Booth (probably last of the season outside)...
"Iowa Junk Gypsies"



I netted this fabulous "Tri-Mirror" - for Ebay this winter OR one of my sales...
This seller is from Iowa...


Diane's Booth is always indoors... ~ She has THE BeST display of anyone...
~Sooooooo creative, exquisite taste~ these pics do not do it justice...
I always enjoy shopping in her booth - gets my ideas brewing!!!
THanK you Diane for ALL you do!!!
