Though it's rainy and cold in Chicago this weekend, I plan on braving the chill to attend Modern Vintage Chicago's Spring Fashion and Jewels Explosion over at the Beauxs Arts Plumber's hall. Ranked as one of the TOP THREE Vintage fairs in the country, and nestled right in the heart of the midwest, how could I pass this opportunity up? Having read about the annual flea market on Randolph, and discovering that this event is brought to Chicagoans by the same people, I was more than curious! I like attending Vintage Heaven every month, but this once-in-a-year chance to check out the wares of way more vendors from as far as NYC, Texas, Georgia, Minnesota - and ITALY!! I'm not sure what I'm going to find there but hopefully I will run into some of you lovely local bloggers at the event this weekend. I will be armed with my camera, and the mentality that I am actually getting money back on my tax return. Dangerous, very dangerous!!
