ShoPPing Yesterday's F*L*E*A - St. Charles, IL...
I squeezed in a little last minute "FLEA-SHoPPinG" - yesterday ~ at KANE COUNTY, in St. Charles, IL
before Urban Farmgirl's Main Street Market
Next Saturday, May 10th in Rockford, IL
AQUA-BLUE, MIXED WITH WHITE
WAS THE "HOT" COLOR AT THE FLEA!!!
Aside from the WIND, the weather was AwEsoMe!!!
A mix of Sun & Clouds with temps in the low 60's... Initially there was a good crowd waiting as the Gates Opened, but oddly enough, in my opinion - it seemed to "thin-out" by mid afternoon, instead of getting busier...
My FaVoRiTe Dealers did not disappoint at the flea!!!
FINALLY ~ the FLOW of new "ViNtaGe Finds" is hitting the MARKET!!! It's been quite a SLOW-START this Season, due to the cold hard winter here in the midwest...
I netted a few "Select Shabbies" ~ but for me, I was disappointed at the increase of entire booths with newly painted furniture, made in china adornments, & business advertising booths...
ViNtaGe Metal Folding Chairs
with Original Paint...
I saw them being hauled-out later that day...
Judy had the Sweetest
ViNtaGe Metal Drawer Cubby Cabinet
in Original ChiPPy Light Blue Paint...
The sun was shinning so ~ I couldn't
pick up it's true color...
*Almost* Bought the SHIP...
For a Show I'll be doing
Up in Door County, Wisconsin,
ON JULY 12th
LOCATION: Bailey's Harbor
- in a park that skirts the water!*!*!
This would have been just S*W*E*E*T for
someone's Waterfront Cottage Home...
Kathy goes All-Out with display!!!
She mixes in a small amount of original vintage,
along with her more recently painted ones...
OMG ~ B*E*S*T...
Most FaVoRiTe Sighting!*!*!
This Dealer ALWAYS has such Unique
ViNtaGe Items in ORIGINAL, AS-FOUND
Even her S*O*L*D TAG is ViNtaGe!*!*!
A*N*D... Last but not least,
ThAnK Y*O*U So Much for
A*L*L* your "Well~Wishes" on My
ViNtaGe GaRdeNs Magazine Feature!!!
