**Grayslake Flea Market** Illinois...

Firstly I want to Thank Everyone for your support with my  "Changing Gears Issue" ~ Now having the SaLe at my Home...  ~ It really helped a lot!*!*!   I guess we've all been there in some way or another...
I'm sooooo glad I went to the Flea Market Yesterday...  It was a gorgeous day ~ the Sun was Out!*!*!  I wasn't as crazed as usual, initially it was a thin crowd when the doors opened, AND  Because of this, I was actually able to talk to the dealers!!! ~ a rarity indeed!!! 


   Joan's Display was the "star of the show"...  Does this say SpRiNg or What!?!?!  Sorry I did not get a chance to say hellooooo Joan...  Both times I stopped in your booth, YOU were busy!  Joan had the most unusual garden basket ~ metal of sort ~ perfectly chippy!!!
anything goes here blog spot


BeSt FiNd of the show for me!*!*!  Georgette is such a sweet gal!!! ~ She especially pointed out this lovely "Bird & Cherries" Hankie ~ knowing it was soooooo me...  I LoVe It!!!  Of course I bought it!!!  I plan to put a small chippy white watering can or perhaps a white matte vase in the center...  Thanks Georgette!


Great Piece of Architectural SaLvaGe...  Maureen snatched up the sparkling chandelier!!!


LoveLy "Fresh SpRiNg Display"...   So nice to chat with her...


I don't know too much about these Ladies, but jewelry is their main thing... They create a lot of things from old fragments...  I always seem to find a little something in their booth...  GREAT Display Pieces...


Altered Ever After Booth...





Sandy's Booth...



A SpRiNg Adornment in Diane's Booth...

  6. My friend Dawn & I were vendor's at Grayslake on Saturday, you hit all my favorite vendors there! I was excited to see the dress form in Janice's booth, because she came home with me today! What a find! She is featured on my blog~she will be modeling my jewelry at shows. I had been looking for a long time for the perfect gal for the job and there she was...I have named her Tiffany:) You captured the day very well, great pics. Hope we get to meet sometime.
