1st of the Season **Kane County Flea Market Pics**

The weather couldn't have been any better for the First of the Season - Kane County Flea Market this past SaTuRdaY ~  45 degrees & sunny...  It was SOOOOOOO CROWDED - JUST MOBBED...  Infact, some of my pics are blurry from getting my arms bumped - no kidding...  It was almost toooo overwhemling with people...  I'm sure all the vendors did exceptionally well...  I have sooooo much to share about this past weekend ~ that I'll be spreading it out over the next few days... ~ First things first - The FLEA MARKET of course!!!

Diane ALWAYS has the most unique displays...  The old typewriter with these "spring-time" butterflies were just sweet!*!*!   


The Iowa Junk Gypsies had a HUGH BOOTH this time...  


The Urn with Ivy is sitting on my kitchen table right now...


I bought quite a few things in Judy's Booth this time with my upcoming summer shows in mind...  You really need to spend a lot of time in Judy's Booth ~ Sooooo many unique finds...


I just loved this little "screen & glass" cabinet in Judy's booth, but unfortunately it just wasn't chippy/rusty enough for me...  I'm sure it went to a good home - GREAT FUNKY SPRING DISPLAY ITEM...


This was a FaBuLouS Vintage Garden Adornment - weathered on old wood...  I can just see her mixed in a vignette...  The colors were much nicer in person...


I snatched up this Birdie Watercolor in the Iowa Junk Gypsies Booth...
May have to be a keeper...


As I was walking through one of the older "outdoor buildings of sort" ~ This vignette drew me in!!! ~ ~ It turned out to be Janice's Booth!!!  As I'm re-visiting this picture and others - I see there is so much "GOOD STUFF" that I over looked...  Hurried -Shopping on the run - impulse buying...  I think I need to spend MORE TIME in each booth - but I get soooo anxious that I'll be missing out on something further down the line...   I should have bought that little metal tray with the bulbs in it!!!


Such an inviting display...




This little gem of a lady has been selling at Kane forever!!!  The picture above is also her booth...  Her booth is ALWAYS a joy to shop in!*!*!  Fun little fussies...  I bought this PeRfeCtLy ChiPPY 3-Tiered Shelf from her - LoVe It!!!


Fabulous Fabric on this chair...  


Mariann's back from Florida...  It was soooo good to she her!!!    Word is she's gearing up for WARRENTON ~ only a few weeks away!!!

  1. Sorry, too many spelling errors in my post...I'll try this again...Thanks so much for the mention and the business, we always appreciate it. And it is fun to see what WAS in other people's booths because by the time we can get out and about to see, it is , of course, long gone....we loved the double booth this time and can not WAIT to go back outside...
