Nothing But Love For Wolff's Flea Market
Summer is in full swing here in Chicago, and each weekend is filled with street festivals, live outdoor music and trips to the beach. This past weekend was no exception. Saturday night was spent inside the MeanMillies studio finishing up a few projects. With the windows open, a warm summer breeze ushered in the sounds from my neighbors as they held an outdoor party featuring a live backyard Jazz Band.
On Sunday I had the pleasure to finally check out Wolff’s Flea Market. If you are in Chicago or the Chicago land area, chances are, you’ve driven past this beast of a market held at All State Arena. The objective was to find pieces capable of being repurposed for jewelry and in general to become overall inspired. With vendors who were open to bargain, and lots of things to look at, the day was a success.
Check out the pictures above for 3 of my favorite objects from the day that didn’t make it home with me. A fun pair of earrings, a pair of vintage aviator goggles and a really great working record player (only $10!). For more great Wolff’s Flea Market finds check my Flickr.
