WeekEnd F*I*N*D*S from KANE COUNTY FLEA

I hit the road  E*A*R*L*Y - Sunday MoRniNg - 4:15 a.m. to be exact, Headed to the Kane County Flea in St. Charles, Illinois...   With everything going on THIS SUMMER, it's been a while since I've been able to Shop this Market...


  Since this is a 2-Day Flea -  Opening on Saturday Afternoon, I was a bit CrAZeD - "thinking" - everything would be well picked-over... THAT WASN'T THE CASE!!!
 ~ Word is that they had yet ANOTHER Bad Storm Pass Through on Saturday Afternoon, with many a Dealer securing their goods back in their cars and trailers only a few hours after set-up...   Sunday's ShoPPing was just GoRgeOuS - COOLER, Somewhat Sunny, Wonderful Breeze!*!*!*! 




 OMG!*!*!




 This one SOLD just minutes before I spotted it!!!
Glass on all 3 sides...
Wonderfully ChiPPy...




 I met up with my Friend - Terry...
She Scored some AwEsoMe F*I*N*D*S...
Terry Sells Her Finds, along with Her Unique, Hand-Crafted Seasonal Folk-Art Adornments...
Check out the Store - On FaceBook...

  5. Hi Jeanine,
    I went on Sunday this month too. I was worried about not going on Saturday like normal and I too thought it would be sold out but Sunday was great like you said. Weather nice and alot of cute picks. I scored a cute chippy cedar lined chest for $35 and gave it some love and now it it the cutest chippiest coffee table ever!!!!! Love the picture of you and Rosemary. You two so cute together.

  7. Hi! I came over from Villabarns, loved all of your photos of the flee market. I wish I lived closer. We don't have any very good flee markets here. I'm now going to follow your blog. It's great!
