While our vendors bring items in all categories, each month we have an added bonus theme. September’s is Retro Chicago.
What is Retro Chicago, you ask? It’s vintage pieces made in Chicago or captures the city’s vibe or is about Chicago! Examples include, old signs from Chicago businesses, World’s Fair memorabilia from 1934, Vintage Chicago Magazine and Tribune, souvenirs, T-shirts, sports, events that took place in Chicago and on and on. At the Vintage Garage we consider anything 25 years or older vintage, but you can expect to find things from the early 1900’s to the early 1990’s.
Any vintage items related to the Blackhawks (especially after this year’s Stanley Cup win) Cubs and Bears are especially hot. Colleges and Universities also have memorabilia everywhere. You might be able to find your Mom’s sorority from the 1970’s or photos with hot spots on campus! Things from the old neighborhood and the suburbs count as well, as do newspapers, photos, postcards, restaurant menus and old photographs. The possibilities are endless and we are so excited to see what everyone finds!
Plan to also see vintage clothing, vintage dresses, danish modern furniture, vintage furniture, mid-century modern, vintage jewelry and so much more. This all vintage Chicago flea market rocks!
