211 flea market finds

I ventured to St. Charles for the Kane County Flea Market today with Amanda.  I am not a huge fan of flea markets since I’m not really into vintage stuff.  I like a little here and there, but I kind of feel like … if I’m going vintage it should mean something to me.  That said … I will go anywhere just for the experience.  And I had heard this flea market was particularly good.  

I was totally impressed with the amount of vendors – LOTS!  And I managed to pick up some fabulous little treasures.  A vintage light meter (how cool is that for eight bucks?), a collection of “Y” letterpress blocks, a super cool handmade bag (because I need another bag like I need a hole in the head — but it’s cool) and then the steal of the show… a vintage chevron quilt.  I spotted it and originally passed it by and then circled back.  I have been talking with my mother about making me something like this and voila!  As you can see the kitties have already adopted it.  Lucy is lounging on it as I type!  

I give the Kane Co. Flea two thumbs up!
