It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like...

CHRISTMAS! And we'll be ready for it, starting with this weekend's Kane County (IL) Flea Market. We'll have lots of wonderful handmades, excellent gift ideas and everything you'll need to deck your halls -- from silver to an extra chair for the dining room table. Come see us in the Main Building, Saturday, November 2, 12 to 5, and Sunday, November 3, 7 to 4. And while you're at it, visit us later this week on Facebook for a peek at what's "in store" for the weekend! See you there. xo -- Sandy and Joe

Picture Perfect Day

We couldn't have had better weather for last weekend's Burlington (KY) Antique Show. A nip of frost in the air gave way to sunny sweater weather by mid-morning. The sunshine brought out a lot of shoppers and a lot of dealers. There was some top-notch product to be had for sure, and shoppers were bargaining hard. We had a decent show, selling mostly smalls, and had a great time catching up with friends, dealers and customers we only get to see when we are in that neck of the woods. Still working on next year's calendar, but will let know when we'll be back again! This week, we're off to restock at Midland in Indy, then on to see SoBo Style in Columbus, OH. xo

Burlington: Our Last Outdoor Show for the Season

TIME for BURLINGTON! We can't believe it -- the outdoor season is almost over. Come join us this Sunday for the Burlington (KY) Antique Show, one of our all-time favorite venues. Burlington is a hands-down awesome place to shop -- we are excited! And we'll have plenty to SELL as well! Lots of new furniture, industrial, containers, smalls, handmades and more. Show hours are 8 to 3, with Early Buy starting at 6 a.m. Can you say "road trip'?! See you there. xo -- Sandy and Joe. P.S. We are also restocking at both Midland and Mishawaka this week. Come see what's IN STORE as well. (:
GRAYSLAKE REPORT: Saturday was busy for us, starting with Early Buy. Lots of furniture found new homes, and we got to catch up with several customers we haven't seen for a bit. Sunday was quieter for Team Rhubarb, but I noticed that several of our neighbors were hoppin'! Felt like it was a good show. Many thanks to all who came out for it. Next month, look out! It's Holiday! xo
