Even though it was chilly, the sun was shining both days at the Kane County Flea Market this past weekend.
Judy and I set up our tent frames inside and made a burlap wall, creating a defined space to show our goods. We included lots of fresh tulips and green plants to give our booth a touch of Spring!
|Tulips are my absolute favorite flower. Big bunches of tulips just shout SPRING!|
|This fluffy feathered Phyllis Diller style hat got lots of compliments, but no one selected it as their Easter bonnet.|
|Judy sewed up some wonderful pillows from these authentic old sacks.|
|This old tin-headed dolly has probably heard lots of dreams....|
|Fabulous graphics on these old homemaker magazines...|
|Great patina on this old stool|
|Judy slipcovered this footstool, which I was THRILLED to buy for my living room. How awesome to pull off the slipcover and throw it in the wash! She might have another one next month...|
|Vintage owl bank prompted several questions of "How would I get the money out?"|
|The lucky buyer of this fabulous Venus de Milo statue had a matching tattoo on her arm.|
Destined to own it.
|A basketful of sunshine.|
|Lots of repurposing ideas for this stainless steel laundry cart, from bar cart to patio grill accessory.|
It went to a happy new home Sunday morning.
We are back to gathering for the next Kane show in April.
You won;t want to miss it. All our Iowa dealer friends will join us in our usual spots OUTSIDE.
