Grayslake Antique Flea Market

Day one is over, and it was a fantastic day, thanks to so many of you who came out and shopped on this beautiful day!  Don't worry, though, if you didn't get there today; the show goes on from 8-3 on tomorrow, (Sunday).  
Look who I caught sharing the joy of junk!  It's Diane Passi and Jeanine (ChiPPy!-SHaBBy!).  Both have beautiful spaces this weekend, as usual. 

There was a most unfortunate incident when I unloaded for the show last night. I opened the back of my vehicle and five beautifully aged clay pots jumped out. 
Did you know that clay pots don't have a clue about "stop, drop & roll".  They got the "drop" part right, followed immediately by "shatter".  Instead of being lovely containers for a bit of greenery, they became 'filler' for a planter box.  Ya saw it here first, folks.  I suspect that before you know it, Pottery Barn will be showcasing "shattered pots" in the catalog.  If they do, do not, I repeat, do not purchase them.  Give me a holler and I'll set up a little tutorial so you can make your own.  On that happy note, I'm dragging my sleep-deprived self to bed. 

Come on out to Grayslake...we'd love to see you!


  1. I will be looking for your idea the next time I'm in PB!!! happy to hear that you had a good day:)


  2. So glad you had a great day. Best of luck tomorrow. You caught two of my favorite people in that first shot.

  3. too funny, if we see them in the PB catalog, we'll know the genius behind the trend! They look great in there btw!

  4. Hope day #2 at Grayslake was successful! The weather is perfect. I haven't been in years, I must put it on my calendar!

  5. I hate it when that happens and vintage clay pots are something serious. I do use broken clay pots in the bottom of other pots to promote drainage.

  6. Helloooo Jan...
