The One Minute Diva – Chicago Antiques Market and Kane County Flea Market Alert!

oving Reporter La Reine is at it again, asking me to remind all you Chicago Chickies (or simply the Chicago bound) to mark your calendars for Oct 27 – 28, 2007 for the last Chicago Antiques Market of the season! Operating the last Sunday of the month from May – Oct, the CAM is an utterly diva-worthy attraction! Their motto, “New York has Chelsea, London has and Paris has Clingnancourt, finally Chicago has The Chicago Antiques Market”, has The Antiques Diva ™ considering hopping the next flight to O’hare simply so I can see in person how the CAM compares with these other “Big Boys of the Flea Marketing World”! I want to see why Travel and Leisure magazine calls The Chicago Antiques Market, “one of the top 3 urban flea markets in America.”

If you’re still in the mood for flea-marketing after going to the CAM, then consider the Kane County Flea Market in St. Charles, Illinois on Nov 3-4 or Dec 1-2 for some serious bargains. Should you enjoy your visit, then you’re in luck because this flea market is open year-round on the first weekend of the month. “Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat” will cause Kane County Flea Market to cancel a sale, for just like the US Postal Service, they promise to always deliver! Over 1000 vendors sell genuine antiques, cool vintage stuff and just plain junk!

While La Reine did hit the September CAM, she didn’t make the October dates at Kane County as she was in Palm Beach with Floridian things on her mind. But rumor has it that her mom, The Queen Mum, went to KC so perhaps she’ll regale my readers with a quick update of her purchases!

Until next time,
The Antiques Diva ™
