Gorgeous ANTIQUES at Randolph Street MARKET

Do you know about Randolph Street Market? Far from a flea fair, this is an indoor-outdoor urban antique market (often touted as the "Barney's of vintage") featuring 200+ carefully curated purveyors of furnishings, vintage clothing, jewelry, collectibles, etc. Randolph Street Market holds events approximately once a month, sometimes with a specific focus. For instance, October 20-21 is their Modern Vintage Jewelry & Clothing Expo.

But before you scurry off for mid-century dresses and Edwardian baubles, let me share some photos from last month's market, where I was honored to participate in Randolph Street Market's "Editors Choice for Charity". Each of us were handed five blue ribbons, a clipboard, a drink ticket (very important!), and a mission to select our five favorite pieces. Should our pieces be purchased, the charity of our choice (mine was the Junior League of Chicago) would receive a donation. And they were purchased! Thanks to all who supported us that weekend.

A few of my "blue ribbon" choices are below...

Clockwise from top left: 1960s vanity chair, reupholystered with material from a dress; 1940s painting, artist unknown; 1930s Italian painting; 1890s silver plated buffet steamer.
