Modern Vintage Chicago is Baaaaa-aaack!!

By now, my readers know that I'm a HUGE fan of the Randolph Street Market here in Chicago. What started off as a market only available once a month in the summer has expanded to nearly every month during the year!

This weekend Modern Vintage Chicago is back!! Sponsored by the creators of the Randolph Street Market, this event is going to be even bigger and better than the first (check out my post about the first one).

Coined as the "Spring Fashion and Jewels Explosion", please believe there will be a large, yet well-edited, selection of items to purchase. So be prepared to be tempted by at least one item from each booth...or maybe that's just me. :-)

Besides shopping, below are some additional event facts that will entice you:

* Caroline Ashleigh, from the Antique Road Show, will be onsite signing copies of her new book, Warman's Shoes Field Guide. This is perfect for shoe collectors!

* Nena Ivon, the Randolph Street Market's new Fashion Director, will host a shopping party and private reception on Saturday morning that will also include a fashion show which will utilize the balcony and staircase as a runway.

* Silver Moon will be onsite with custom designed wedding gowns as well as seamstresses who will be able to alter any purchases you make at the event.

If that's not enough, you will be able to sell your unwanted gold at the event. That's right! Get some money back and use that towards your purchases.

Be sure to make your way over to Modern Vintage Chicago this weekend! Purchase tickets online to save $2...that extra bit of money could go towards a purchase too, you know.

For more information and to purchase tickets, click the image above OR visit the Modern Vintage Chicago Facebook Event Page.

I hope to see you there. I'll be the one buying up every vintage brooch in the place!
