As a former owner of an antique showroom and an avid collector of vintage furniture and decor for both myself and my clients, I am constantly on the hunt for vintage hotspots.  There are quite a few out there, some good and many bad, and frequently very pricey.  The Vintage Bazaar however, a self proclaimed “modern pop-up flea market” will feature over 40 vintage vendors selling affordable, one-of-a-kind, housewares, furniture, clothing and accessories.  The event will be held on Saturday February 27 from 12-5 at the Dank Haus in Lincoln Square in Chicago (4740 N. Western Ave).  Best of all…admission is free!  “Vintage” does not have to be expensive to be beautiful, and I will certainly be checking out this unique show.

The masterminds behind the show…Katherine Raz and Libby Alexander.

Check out their own antiques businesses: Back Garage and Alexander Salvage.

This just in from Libby,
“Hi Julia,
Thanks so much for writing. So excited to hear people are looking forward to the next one.
We’re planning for our future events right now. Looking to run some (smaller) unique, pop-up Bazaars throughout the summer and then do another big show in about 5-6 months. Just trying to lock down our venues. Should be able to reveal details pretty soon. I’ll make sure you hear about it!”
Thank you, Libby, we MG Chicago peeps cannot wait!
