Chicago Flea Market Finds
This season is our last at the Garage location. 2019 it will be under construction.
We'll be popping up, so keep an eye out and make sure you are on our email list.
September is one of my favorite months because I LOVE retro Chicago stuff. Retro Chicago is the theme so dealers spend time hunting for and socking away vintage Chicago stuff.
I always spend some time adding to my collections. Last year, I picked up a few new Chicago postcards, Marina Towers (first in my collection) and a great shot of the Water Tower. Chicago World's Fair is fun for me and I have a great collection of vintage bracelets jewelry. I added a black compact from Vicker Vintage Chicago that is super cool.
From Bathing Beauty Antiques the best American Airlines vintage ticket, Chicago to San Francisco from 1959. All the bits are there, from the tickets for the Boeing 707 ride to the luggage tags. $89 round trip and what a trip it must have been. I love to find pieces of history that were treasured and I think about how amazing a 707 in 1959 must have been.
I've acquired a heck of a collection of vintage Chicago postcards.
I can't wait to see what this September brings these last 2 shows are a don't miss!
