Despite the fact that I have had zero time for blogging I felt I absolutely had to share photos from my Saturday "boondoggle" into Chicago to celebrate my CSIL's birthday. My Mother in law, Therese and I met for coffee at La Colombe and then ventured on over to the Randolph Street Market and oh my...!
Despite the fact that the market is celebrating 10 years this year, I never had the opportunity to visit it when we lived in Chicago (you know how it is with young kids...) Wow was I missing out, this place had an amazing array of talented and wonderful vendors, eye candy for certain, so I'll let the pictures do the talking.....
Air plants, antiques and the cottage look were big...
Industrial was even bigger....
Textiles galore, in fact the king was painted over a stretched fabric.
My girls, lamps and other amazing goodies...
I even met a lovely fellow Madisonian, Krizia of Oak + Olive. Her shop had a delightful array of repurposed and refinished furniture as well as lovely handmade pillows.
If you live within a couple of hours of Chicago I can't recommend this market enough, fabulous vendors, music and amazing food options, they even serve wine and beer!!! The vibe was hip, yet very down to earth and family oriented, a must see!
Here are a couple other vendors whose cards I picked up:
Gypsy Temple - Bohemian clothing and accessories ( I picked up a lovely embroidered tunic)
Mayseek Global Treasures - stunning textiles from around the world, Kantha quilts to Suzannis
Olde Good Things - refurbished tin
Creative Harmony Studio - metalsmith, furniture to art
This by no means covers it all so check out the Randolph Street Market website and plan a visit during the market season!
What fun adventures did you have this past week-end?
