SuNdAy*** "Grayslake Flea Market"...

This past weekend was GRAYSLAKE FLEA MARKET... Even though we're working on getting my car in the garage for winter, how could I not go with the "gorgeous weather" we had - 67 degrees in Chicago!*!*!*! and Milwaukee wasn't that far off either... I'm sooooo glad I went!!! ThAnK You Dealers for ALL that you do!!! (click on pics to enlarge... Feedback is appreciated - click on comments...)
LoVeD this Radiator!*!*!*!



BEST OF SHOW!!!!!
Diane almost always has the best displays ~ she is so talented!*!*! This AwEsoMe Old Wire Gate went home with me ~ it's a keeper!!! ~ Endless possibilities year round...




I loved this chippy old table in the center of Diane's booth...




I just had to take another pic of this piece after Diane added the PeRfeCt Adornment "Snowy Day" & "no" I did not go home with it... Regrets???...




Kathy is the "Chandelier Queen"!*!*! I too have a passion for those glistening crystal delights!!! Thank you Kathy for sharing all those little "enlightening details"...



Joan's Booth is ALWAYS interesting... ~ She puts sooooo much effort into her unique displays... A real detail person...



Joan filled up "Old Glass Battery Containers" with ornaments/greens/clothes pins...




I almost always find a treasure in Georgeann's Booth (hope I got your name right...) YOU are such a pleasure to chat with! I would say her main collectible/love is "Vintage Linens", although I've come away with some FaBuLoUs chippy... shabby... crusty... rusty... finds over the years too!*!*!*!



You can find anything from vintage barkcloth, 50's table cloths, doilies, & chenille in Georgeann's booth...




With the GoRgeOuS weather, there were lots of outside vendors... Janice is one of my favorite sellers!*!*! I love chatting with her on the run... I've bought some key keeper pieces from her over the years... Janice you are a treasure!*!*!




Outdoor Booth "Architectural Salvage"...





As I was leaving the flea market this AwEsoMe ViNtaGe Car was in the parking lot... If you look closely you can see the old "Picnic/Thermous" pack hanging on the back seat!*!*!
