Randolph Street Market, Chicago:
A Photo Blog
If you’re ever lucky enough to find yourself in Chicago the same weekend as Randolph Street Market, take it as a sign and high tail it over to Randolph and Ada Streets. This festival happens one weekend a month, every month, and is a modge-podge of vintage, hand-made and curated goods. Though there is a $10 fee to enter the market, the browsing alone is well worth it (check www.livingsocial.com for discounts!). We saw everything from bowling pins to records to dinosaur succulent planters (no, I’m not kidding, and yes, they were amazing. Website: www.nestchicago.com ) and much more in-between. The market occupied a large outdoor parking lot, as well as the Chicago Plumber’s Hall building. There’s plenty of food stands of all tastes to keep you nourished for many hours of perusing, and adult beverages if boozy buying is your thing. I particularly enjoyed the large selection of vintage jewels and was on the look-out for the PERFECT cameo necklace the entire time, which I did not find but had tons of fun looking through everything in my search. I would love to go on and on about how amazing everything at Randolph Street Market was, but I think I can let the pictures do the work for me.

Until next time, Randolph Street Market; I will definitely be back.
