Rained Out at the Chicago Antiques Market

Nina and I went to the Chicago Antiques market down the street this weekend. Shortly after we got there it started raining and didn’t really stop for the next 36 hours. We did manage to get a couple photos outdoors before we had to make a run for the inside part of the venue.

I love this naked bridal mannequin, ready to dance but without her partner. I feel like that sometimes, lol.

She should hang out with the other mannequin who lives in our neighborhood, she stands on a fire escape looking across at the el at Lake and Halstead. I think the mustache is a nice touch. Nina snapped this photo the other day on our way to the grocery store.

Love this box of glass fishing floats.

My big find of the day was this 1939 mens day suit. I couldn’t believe the jacket was such a good fit, it just needs a little tailoring in the upper back, otherwise the size is perfect.

    It is a shame that the show got rained out, for the sellers too, I am sure. Love that suit, definitely looks great on you.

    GREAT photos! Weather makes all the difference for outdoor venues -poor vendors 🙁

  4. thanks Cindy, so true! i felt so bad for the outdoor vendors, the opening weekend was probably a total loss for them.

    Looks like you two had a blast! You have a great body to wear the suit.

    Just curious – has your street name changed recently? 😉

  6. Lisa they posted a street sign at each end of the block. One is posted in front of the Harpo Studios sign so that people could get that in the photos too if they wanted.

    oh my…..isn’t that suit an awesome find? It looks FABULOUS on you!

    Too bad about the weather….always a risk with outdoor venues. Thanks for giving us a little peak. Love those mannequins!
