UPDATE: Here are the five pieces that I chose.
I love antiques (seriously, I regularly dream about old silver found in dusty rooms...anyone want to analyze that?) but I do not like antique shopping. I'm less about the hunt and more about the finished product, which is why I DO like going to the Randolph Street Market. It's absolutely huge, with hundreds of vendors displaying high-quality wares from a wide range of eras. No tramping around in countless tiny shops necessary.
This weekend is the 4th annual Editors and Designers Choice for Charity, and I'm delighted to participate again. Early on Saturday morning I'll tour the market, choose five of my favorite items, and designate them with a blue ribbon. For every "blue ribbon" item that's purchased, the Randolph Street Market makes a donation to charity. I've again chosen the Junior League of Chicago as my charity, and many other wonderful organizations will benefit, as well. Won't you join us for a little bit of shopping this weekend?
