Kane County Flea Market // An Adventure + Daily Outfit



This is one of those posts where I just don't even know where to start... I seem to be making friends in the strangest of places lately. Lol! First there was my friend Emily who I met at a Madwell event I went to because Teika was there, and now there is Ethan who I met on Instagram (Instagram! who'd a thunk it!?), and it just so happens that he lives not far from my house and knew of an amazing flea market in the area, the Kane County Flea Market.

Naturally I - being of fan of vintage things - was intrigued by the the idea of new-to-me, great flea market to attend, so we decided to meet up there for a day of shopping last Saturday. It was so much fun! Even with being rained out there was much more there than at the Randolph Street market and the prices were better! Not to mention that Ethan was a ton of fun to hang out with (if you don't believe me just ask Maddie!)

It was so much fun to have a day to spend with the fam + friends and do some vintage shopping. Sometime next week I should show you all what I got (Spoiler! Vintage Pyrex is included in the haul!) - or should I do a video about it? I think I like that idea... I'll see what I can do. *winks*

Hope all of y'alls week has been going well so far!

P.S. Thank you, Ethan, for taking those outfit shots for me!

  2. That is a sweet lookin' flea market! I really dig your skirt and jean jacket ensemble! And your daring red lips, even though I just noticed you wear the red lips alot of the time! They look lovely on you :)

    Good luck with everything and may you meet many more cool friends randomly!

  3. MY SHOES 8-D I have a pair like that now, but you know that.

    Looks like you had a lot of fun. I tried an outfit like that today...I flopped it. I think I'm more of the nerdy, hippy type dresser.

    I was going to say something else but the Dementors snatched it from me. Soo, in the words of Gil Soary!

    I'm glad you had a lot of fun though and got to meet Ethan. I want to go there when I come 8-D

    ALLONS-Y!!
