Chicago Antique Market

On Saturday, Victor and I had lunch at Ina's and then checked out the monthly (during warmer months) Chicago Antique Market, which is held in a parking lot and the Plumbers Hall building on West Randolph off Ada. This turned out to be a really fun time. Browsing around in antique shops can get depressing as they are often dark, crowded places that smell like old clothes and dust. Wandering among open displays of cool old stuff out in the sunshine was a nice change. Continual live music helps to justify the $8 admission.

The last Antique Fair of the year will be held in October.
