The Find, December 19-22

Yesterday, Joe and I delivered our inventory to THE FIND, Chicagoland's newest pop-up market. We are super excited to finally get the chance to participate, as the market actually started in October. And then last month, it was named the number one holiday market event by Chicago Magazine! The concept is unique to our area: dealers bring their items no later than two weeks before the event and everything is logged into a computerized inventory system. All items are tagged by dealer, but are displayed together in eye-candy-ish vignettes, put together by THE FIND's staff. Merchandise runs the gamut from primitive to refined, industrial to modern. Smalls, furniture, handmades, you name it. It really is a shopper's one-stop vintage paradise. Plus there's a cafe, so you can refuel before hauling your goodies out to the waiting car. Market hours are Thursday, December 19, 10 to 8; Friday, December 20, 10 to 6; Saturday, December 21, 10 to 5; and Sunday, December 22, 11 to 4. Located in Plainfield, check for additional details and directions. And LIKE them on Facebook -- the staff will even be teaching classes, starting this month! Happy hunting! xo

Can't believe it, but this weekend's Grayslake Antique Market will be our last show of the season! Join us for a brand new load of furniture, plus lots of great smalls, seasonal handmades and much more.
