The Birdcage

Sorry this post is so delayed, and it's not very detailed - but if you don't follow me on Twitter or Facebook, then you haven't seen my beautiful new antique birdcage. I bought it on Saturday at the Randolph Street Flea Market downtown - for a whoppin' $38! A lot of the items at the market were a bit pricier than I'd expect from a flea market, but I was sold on this item. I am in love with the color and the shape. I also purchased an antler (which I'd been wanting for months) and an antique watering can for my back deck.

FYI Chicagoans, the market runs one weekend a month throughout the year! I definitely recommend going! I'll post more pictures tomorrow. Today is a vaca day, after all!

p.s. I am wearing a maxi dress - so comfortable, I am in love with it - and not some sort of onesy jumpsuit. Bad angle.

  4. ASB: Hah actually I DID get mine for under $40. I paid $10 for that one! I saw the $40 ones though... they were gorgeous! But I thought that price was a bit steep for something an animal sheds, so I wakled a few booths over and saw a guy was selling smaller ones for $10 a pop. I was sold!

    Helena: Thank you! The dress is seriously the MOST comfortable thing in the world. I'm in love with it and would wear it every day if I thought no one would notice.

  7. LOVE the birdcage. I cannot wait to go to the Randolph Street Market! Once I saw your post on Facebook I googled it. Sounds amazing. Too bad that I will miss June and July. But -- I will be there for August! Planning on going with Crystal. Hopefully you can join us!
