**LiViNg-My-Bliss** ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Shops June 2011 Kane County Flea - Illinois...

Summer buying & selling ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! ViNtaGe Finds is in "Full~Swing" now!!!  What is it about the "Thrill-Of-The-Hunt"???  YOU never know what you're going to find!!!  Yesterday - Saturday, I shopped the Kane County Flea Market in Illinois...  Although the weather was sunny and dry - THE HEAT WAS A SCORCHER  - 96 Degrees!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Even my I-Pass melted off the windshield!!!   I netted some awesome shabby finds - infact, it's really going to be hard to part with many an item I brought home...  I Sooooooo ~ L*O*V*E ~ what I'm doing...

 My new ride is working out just PeRfeCt!!!  Of course there was MORE in the Van than what you see...



 Loved this trellis of sort ~ 
but it just wasn't chippy enough...



 SHaBBy Sightings...



 A glimpse of Diane Landry's Booth
 & "Villa Barnes" - in the background...
YES, I did buy the Vintage Tole Candelabra ~ it's going to be "A KEEPER" for a while!*!*!  I can just see it as a table centerpiece with a plant in the middle...  I'm soooo into ORANGE/YELLOW this Summer...



 Sam's Booth had the "Best-Ever" Selection
 of Industrial this month!!!



 Funky Chippy Telephone...




Traci & Mark went "All-Out" as usual, with Over-The-Top BIG DISPLAYS...
YES - the large cubby/drawer cabinet unit SOLD!!!  How did Mark ever get that in there!?!?!?!



 I loved this perfectly chippy cabinet!!!  




Knowing that the Anthropologie Store in Highland Park is open till 7 pm on Saturdays ~ I made a pit stop there for a bit of inspiration... What a FaB Display hanging over the check-out counter!!!

  5. It was great to see you Jeanine. Yes, that tole candelabra you snagged was gorgeous. As usual, thanks for the pics. Being set up, I don't always get to tour the market. I did see Traci and Mark's monster cabinet. We had a laugh about how happy they were it sold. Best of luck at your Garden Show.
