The countdown is on! While Memorial Day usually marks the unofficial beginning of Summer for most people, for me it marks the beginning of 'busy season'. For all you accountants out there (are there accountants who actually read furniture blogs?), you're probably reading this while giving a hearty Dr. Evil 'MuWahahahaaaaah' laugh, seeing as you are finally ending your 'busy season' and are letting out a slow sigh of relief that you passed your audits. Anyways, back to the subject. The countdown is on not only for a three day weekend of backyard BBQ's, spending time with friends and family, Indy 500 racing, and honoring our troops, it's a countdown to the first (outdoor) Randolph Street Market of the year. Yeah Baby!

It's FINALLY here! THE event Chicagoans have been waiting for all year! Ok, maybe that's a slight exaggeration. But it's at least the event I have been looking forward to all year... Randolph Street Market! Let me take a minute to get everyone up to speed here. Randolph Street Market is a monthly fair with over 250 vendors including everything from vintage goods, antiques, home decor, apparel, furniture, and much more. I have actually been going to this fair for years and have never left empty handed. You just never know what you're going to find, but you know it's going to be good! It's always exciting to check out the new vendors and see their new collections. Well, this year I'm coming back, but this time on the other side. That's right, this year I will be attending as a vendor! I'm not sure exactly what to expect, but am super excited about the opportunity (and looking forward to sneaking a bit of personal shopping in as well). You can get all the details here.
