Fourth of July: The 4 Fs

Hope your Fourth of July included a full serving of the four Fs: fabulous food, wonderful friends, awesome fireworks -- and some terrific flea-marketing! Our hosts, the Boyds, took care of the first three items on the list -- food to die for, excellent guests from as far away as the United Arab Emirates, and lovely fireworks watched from atop a bridge over the Fox River.

And our excellent customers at the Kane County Flea Market took care of number 4. Despite the heat, large furniture out-sold small furniture.
Graphics, ephemera and handmades, such as these lovely French beaded flower bouquets
and our signature chalk boards, sold very well.

Today we were busy getting to work on our load for next weekend's Grayslake Antique Market. Check back later this week for a preview of what we're bringing! If you're looking for something special, leave a comment. We'd love to help you find it. xo
