Wedding Wonderland, Plus a Kane County Update

I promised last week to share with you a few more photos from customer Chris Barickman's (Emerson Creek Pottery and Tearoom) wedding to her sweetie Dave Demiduk, so here goes! The sepia tone of their engagement photo hinted at the color story of their "glam country" wedding:

Here's the view from the front of the tent, just as guests were arriving:

Cocktails, cake and later dancing took place in the barn, adjacent to the tent:

Remember these chandeliers? Our friend Lynda found them at the Third Sunday Market and had them painted white. They turned the barn and tent into a fairyland:

Especially when you added the candlelight!

The event was photographed for "The Knot," a Chicago-based wedding magazine, and Chris is already booking weddings for 2011! Click the link above for details.

Kane County Update
A chilly, but sunny, weekend awaited shoppers at the Kane County Flea Market. Christmas was definitely on every one's mind and was selling briskly. We didn't sell much furniture until Sunday, when several architectural pieces also found new homes. Ironstone and ephemera were popular with customers, but our apothecary jars and banker's cabinet are still looking for new homes! The talk of the town was definitely the opening of Architectural Anarchy, a new venture for customers Gosia Korsakowski/Blue Bell Bazaar and Bill Rawski/ZAP Props, which will take place next Friday, November 12, at 2229 S. Halsted in Pilsen. Be sure to check that out. And thanks, as always, to all our wonderful customers for coming out to support us at Kane. Check back later this week for a Grayslake update. xo

Thanks for the link to Architectural Anarchy - it looks like a wonderland of salvage! (...nd it was fun to spot some of the blue marquee letters that Bill bought from me in Bloomington in 09.)

See you at Grayslake!

Sooo good to see you. Hope you are feeling better. Lynda did an awesome job on the wedding lights- I know she had been working hard for several months finding things :)
