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!
