ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! ViNtaGe ShoPPing Weekend!*!*!

Every year I spend the "first weekend of March" with my Best Friend from High School...  We usually shop the stores in St. Charles and Geneva, Illinois...  It's always a plus with the Kane County Flea Market falling on that weekend too!!!  Here are a couple pics of places we visited... 

Each year we visit the GENEVA ANTIQUE MALL in quaint Geneva, Illinois...  They always have a wonderful "seasonal display" in the middle of the store...  I love their "SPRING DISPLAYS" the most!!!  Click on the pic to enlarge this one ~ enjoy the details...  Although it's usually hard to find items for resale in a Mall, I did walk away with a "Few SHaBBies" for my booth space at Grayslake Antique Flea Market this upcoming weekend!!!  (see sidebar)...


By the time we got to this inviting store - they were just about to close!!!  Great Eye-Candy here!!!

Check back tomorrow for the report and pics on Kane County Flea Market!*!*!  I can say this - I drove home with my car "Stuffed to the brim" with SHaBBies!!!

  3. Love it! Can't wait to see the flea market - love me some of those! I just went to one in TN and it was great - a little higher priced than the ones here in PA but fun nonetheless!
