SHoPPing-For-SHaBBies @ The KANE COUNTY FLEA...


This past weekend was the 2nd Market of the 2013 Season for shopping the
 Kane County Flea in St. Charles, Illinois... 
With strong winds & rain in the forecast - it most certainly scared-off a good number of outside vendors... ~ IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN A SEA OF OUTSIDE TENTS BY NOW!!!   YES, the wind was bad on Saturday, with an occasional light drizzle, but SUNDAY was most enjoyable outdoors...  Up until this past weekend - with Snow still on the ground and Cold temperatures - I REALLY feel, that due to these weather conditions, many a dealer has not been able to easily acquire more stock, or for that matter access their storage sheds...  

  As for my personal *SHaBBy ShoPPing* Report
 ~ Just "Ho-Hum"... 
 Remember, I have a very particular look ~ that being ViNtaGe, with a Naturally Time-Worn Patina... For Me, there was way tooooo many reproductions, newly painted old furniture, jewelry, coffee cakes, & local business advertising booths...   I was appreciative that a handful of my FaVoRiTe Dealers did set-up, and I netted some fab finds from them!*!*!  - THAT'S WHAT I GO THERE FOR, and will continue to...  YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL FIND UNTIL YOU **Begin-The-Hunt** EACH TIME...
