**SNoWy Load-In** @ December Kane County Flea Market!*!*!

This past Saturday Morning, around 4:30 a.m., ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! began the 3 Hour, "white nuckle" drive to the Kane County Flea Market in Illinois...  After battling the "scary, sleeting, icy, snowy, dark interstate" ~ with many an insane large semi truck splashing my windows with blinding slushy snow, I was so relieved to approach my exit!!!  I found a cozy little restaurant "with good coffee" to take a break and regroup... 


Here's what the "DEALER LOAD-IN / LINE-UP" looked like around 8:30 a.m. in the morning... 



I shared a booth space with my friend Mariann...  This was my ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! side of the display...  The chippy Newel Post was one of the first items to sell ~ Candelabra & Industrial Cart SOLD later...  This was the second darling cart I've SOLD this season...  I love the Industrial Wheels ~ perfect prop by a front/back door decorated seasonally...


Here's Mariann Setting up a "Funky SHaBBy-WHiTe Christmas Tree" in the center of our booth space...


It looked "Just GoRgeOuS" adorned with cream and brown toned ornaments ~ lots of Owls/Birds...


With two of us sharing the booth space, it was much easier to "sneek-away" for a bit & SHOP!!!  My favorite spot to shop at Kane is the Older Building that houses the cafeteria...  Mostly Vintage Items are found here and most Dealers are in the same spot month after month...  Diane's Booth, in this vintage building, is always FIRST on my Shopping List!!!  I bought a funky crusty/rusty stool from her...   


Candyce & Jill of "Altered-Ever-After" were in eye-sight of our booth...  I just LoVeD her "Retro Red Car Display" - BEST!*!*!
