SHaBBy ShoPPing KANE COUNTY FLEA - St. Charles, Illinois...


I shopped the Market BOTH Saturday & Sunday - 
Sooo glad I did!!!  This Row had lots of ViNtaGe Finds...
Do click on pics to enlarge details...



 These dealers L*O*V*E time~worn ViNtaGe!*!*!




 Every time I passed her booth - a different
 "PLANTER" was in this same spot!!!




 You snooze...
You loose...
I thought tooooo long about buying the FaB White Vintage Tub...
  They make such great pieces for backyard parties filled with ice & beverages... 
AND this was ChiPPy W*H*I*T*E with a bit different form...



 Judy, of the Iowa Junk Gypsies was selling "solo" on Saturday...  
Without thinking twice, I Snagged this darling ViNtaGe Concrete BirDie Sculpture...
  This one most certainly will be a *Keeper* for a long... long... time!*!*!  It has FaB age crackling in the Old-White-Paint...







 This booth was a SHaBBy-White-Out,with more recently painted items...  
The beautiful displays really drew you in!!!




 ALMOST bought it...
It was in the toooo chippy category, and I wasn't sure how stable the crack was...




I spotted this PeRfeCtLy ChiPPy galvanized bucket "in someone else's cart"...  I was just C*R*A*Z*E*D OVER IT!!!  Sooooo I offered the woman double what she paid for it...  And let me tell you, - it was quite a hefty number...
 Sad to Say - it went home with HER...

Do check back later in the week to SEE
 My Top 4 "Keeper F*I*N*D*S"
from the weekend!*!*!

  1. I think I live in the wrong part of the country - such lovelies you found, even if you didn't get to take them home! I'll be shopping Springfield Ohio in two weeks, and hope they have half the cool chippy shabbies you showed in your photos!

  2. I have been tempted to offer folks money for things they just bought like you did. Good for you! I shall be brave like you next time. I can't stand it when people buy my things-you know.
