sundays have been the best days for wandering the city. last sunday, i went to two sales - a rummage sale featuring vintage designer labels and a garage sale of sorts featuring vendors from the midwest area. i found some great pieces, like a vintage armani silk blouse and a sonia rykiel trenchcoat.
but today was my first time at the best of the best - the randolph street market. this weekend not only was the first weekend opener of the year, it also marks its 10th anniversary. it's impossible to walk through the aisles of vendors without finding something you'll like. i picked up a pair of 70s lucite tray tables for my apartment for a steal! and it was difficult to tear myself away from these gorgeous mid-century modern chairs that i spotted... and that was my problem with the furniture. jewelry and clothing vendors were mostly indoors, most of which offered vintage designer labels for very reasonable prices. YSL, gucci, balmain... seriously. it's worth a look.
if you're ever in town, randolph street market is open the last weekend of every month from 10-5 pm. it's only $10 to get in, $5 if you're a student! more information is available at their website: www.randolphstreetmarket.com
