North Shore Flea - a Quaint Place to Be!

Last Wednesday we had perfect weather in Chicago, which made for a great visit to the North Shore Flea in Highland, IL.

Mr. KnickityKnack came with and got a hotdog from "The Mean Weaner."  Delish.

We both treated ourselves to the Popcorn Jester's caramel apple mix - also delish!

And we bought some delish tarts from the French nuns that were there!  Make sure to pay them a visit!

In addition to all the farmers' fruits and veggies, there were lots of food vendors, beverage vendors (yes beer and wine!), a bounce house, and lots of children and doggies.  A great atmosphere!

As for the flea -  I just LOVED the shared booth by Gracie's Cottage and Down Lilac Lane!

I cannot get over how charming these vintage cake toppers are!  I would love to have one for my wedding!

She had so many!
I pretty much loved everything in their booth!

Lots of cute old clocks, keys, bits and bobs...
Truth be told, there were quite a few things there that I wouldn't have minded taking home...

Love the red step stool!
I had fun trying on vintage glasses from Albie's booth...

And also saw some crafty upcycled vintage...

How cute is this idea!  Check out the Past and Present Shoppes in Aurora  for more from this vendor!
