AnTiQuE Saturday!!! ~ Grayslake Flea Market- IL

Rain-Rain- go away!!!  It was such a gloomy Saturday...  ~ Off to an indoor FLEA MARKET - Grayslake, Illinois...    Since I wasn't sooooo CraZeD to buy after last weekend, I went with my family... The 3 of us stopped and had a delicious breakfast before hand - @ WILDBERRY...  The overall shopping experience - I did indeed come home with GREAT STUFF!*!*!  Atmosphere - I still "miss the Old Grayslake Fairgrounds"...  Junk looks sooooo much better in Old Buildings!*!*!  Once again, Thank You Dealers for ALL that you do - especially 2 weekends in a row!*!*!

Here I am with Sandy of RHUBARB REIGN... ~ She looked "just gorgeous" - how does she do it!?!?!  I wanted to buy the Fab Necklace she had on!!! YES - I came away from her booth with some special finds...  When I came back for my items, the booth was a maze of RED SOLD TAGS!!! ~ Way to go Sandy!!!


Just GoRgEouS ~ Vintage Chandelier with porcelain roses...
I think that little table has a darling "Anthro" Knob on it!!!



I would have snatched this light fixture up if it were ChiPPy!!!


Mariann's Booth looked "The BeSt Ever"!!!
GoRgeOuS Shell Mirror...


Mariann will be headed to TEXAS, for the Warrenton Show, right after this weekend's Flea Market!!!  That girl is ALWAYS on-the-go!*!*!   Always a joy to see her!!!  She's doing what she LoVes!!!


Funky Bird on branch...  Sorry I forgot to grab this in Mariann's Booth...  


Spring-Time theme in Diane's Booth with ALL her little fussies!!!


It's all in the details...  Diane does such an incredible job creating her displays...


PeRfEcT for a Spring Vignette ~ Diane's Booth...


Look at that Darling Chippy Garden Table with the SOLD SIGN!!!
Check out Joan's Blog ~ AnyThing Goes Here...  Joan is so creative...  **She goes ALL OUT with her Booth Displays**


Joan out did herself with ALL her special "Easter Creations"!*!*!


A "hint of Paris" theme in Janice's Booth...


I've bought many an item in Barb's Booth over the years...
  A few are Still "Keepers"!*!*!
Her husband is a sweetheart ~ helps her out most of the time...
Expensive "BliNg" ~ I don't know how that dealer came up with the dollar figure that was on it!!!


I found some lovely ViNtaGe Millinery in Georgeann's Booth...  ~ She has such a nice selection of vintage linens along with other shabby finds...


These "ChiPPy LeGs" remind me of "Warrenton"!!!
I remember a booth along the highway that had a shopping cart with mannequin legs like this - sticking out!!!  ~ On a quick drive-by ~ it was quite eye-catching!*!*!


It's always a treat to stop and have breakast...  Wildberry Restaurant has my Favorite Waffles - they'll l make them nice & crisp for me!*!*!*!
