It's Back!

It's Back!

Sandwich Antique Market! It's back. I was giddy on Sunday morning.  Like a kid on Christmas Day.  Like some adults I know at Halloween.  I LOVE this market.  The gentle summer breeze in the air, the smell of musty wood mixed with the ever present bratwurst truck parked in the center of the park, the dusty road that winds around the fairgrounds. I love it all.  Most of all, I love the bargains and I love the authenticity of the products.  You never know what you will find.  Here are just some of the gems from May's vendors:

This vendor had AMAZING things. Raw Industrial. 
These letters are from a bowling alley on the south side of Chicago.
I tried to convince him to come back next month.
(Message me if you want his info).

Just one of 20 "booths" loaded with wood pieces.

I feel like this might be found on the set of Mad Men.

Love it when I find the ones with a slightly blue tint.

Had to have these vintage suitcases.
I plan to pair them with red ribbons. Stay tuned.

Reminds me of my grandma.

This was my favorite moment of the day.
My 8 year old son was fascinated by this object.

Just one more reason to love the
upcoming summer antiquing season....history lessons.

  1. I love flea markets!!! I did a similar post on my blog for the one in Springfield, Ohio. Lia went with me too and was fascinated by all the weird stuff. There was a huge plastic hand chair (you sat in the palm and the fingers were the back) she wanted to buy but it was way too much. You never know what you're going to find!
