Grayslake Flea Market

Shopping and chatting with vendors was so much fun today that I did a really bad job of getting good photos. After a gloomy week it was nice to have sunshine; I'm sure the outside vendors appreciated it too.

Frederick Klass, Jr brought one of the best things I saw today. 
Alas, it was too big...for my home and for my budget.
Diane Passi had a dreamy booth.
I'd been wanting to meet the Iowa Junk Gypsies, and had fun chatting with Anita.  Their displays are inspiring.
It was great to meet Joan of Anything Goes Here and Joe and Sandy from Rhubarb Reign and see Candy & Jill from Altered Ever After. There were wonderful finds in their booths and sadly, I didn't get any great photos.  Of course I brought home a few things - we'll have show & tell soon!


  1. This looks like a fun sale- I would have loved to shop!


    I was there too!

    That industrial shelf was the coolest thing there wasn't it. The propeller was a big hit with my 4 year old son too.
    I got so many good things - all will be for sale (after I have my way with them) at the farm sale in May. Can't wait.

    Sounds like you had as much fun as I did. I came home giddy.
    Email me and tell me how close you are to Greys.

  3. Looks like a great day. We don't seem to have the markets and shows you have in the North.
    Enjoy your week!

  4. Great to meet you. Thanks for much for mentioning us in your post. I am not sure if I'll get to see you at Kane in May, because I will just be there one day due to Prom, but it looks like you have great stuff. I;m sure you'll do well! Do you know where your booth is?
