I hope all of you had a fabulous holiday weekend! I did, in large part, because of my wonderful trip to the Randolph Street Market, Chicago's biggest flea market of antiques and vintage furniture, home decor, jewelry, and other fun trinkets. I wanted to share some more photos with you because it was such a treat walking around looking at all the treasures for sale and imagining what I could do with them in my own home. It was not as fun narrowing down my selections seeing as there were so many items I wanted. Here's a peak at what the market offered.
This antique workbench reminded me of the Pottery Barn replica I saw when I toured their new Chicago store.
The Pottery Barn Markham console bar.
These tables are amazing and I noticed several vendors were selling similar pieces. I'd love this as a coffee table. Coincidentally, Pottery Barn also sells something very similar: the Wheel Indoor/Outdoor coffee table.
Wanted one of these floor mirrors framed with vintage and antique ceiling tin tiles.
These babes - similar to the Eames Molded Plywood chair - were selling for $350 a pop.
Oh how I love antique globes. And yet I still do not own one. These were all a bit overpriced. I think the cheapest one was $80.
Beautiful vintage French pieces. That gorgeous chest of drawers is the same color as my new birdcage, and I am now declaring it my second favorite color, after yellow. What color is that exactly? Teal? Sea green?
Antlers would be amaaaaaazing on a mantel, a la this room from the cover of House Beautiful.
The perfect writing desk. I imagine Jane sat at something similar as she penned P&P. Yea. We're on a first name basis. Jealous?
I wanted that 2 but didn't get it. 2 is my favorite number. And now you've all learned something new today about yours truly.
Cool vintage flashlights. Reminded me of Molly Saves the Day. Tell me someone out there knows what I'm talking about.
This market had the coolest farmhouse tables - all for under $900. Solid craftmanship, great size, all together perfect if you're in the market for one. I just have no idea how you'd get it home.
*UPDATE: The producer of the Randolph Street Market just informed me that onsite delivery service is available AND/OR many of the vendors will provide delivery to anywhere.
If only had I had somewhere to put this perfect green, genie-in-a-bottle-shaped lamp... If only. Hi, my name's Alaina. And I'm a lamp-aholic.
One of these vintage beauties came home with moi! The coral and gold one - second row from the top, second column from the right. Right above the empty slot. See it? Yea. It's perty.
Loved this gold tray for holding jewelry and perfumes. Fortunately, I've already got that covered at my house.
