my friend Patti from Creative Cottage Dreamer asked me recently how do I find out about all these flea markets in the area.
There are a couple of ways that I have found them:
by googling, word of mouth and also when I do visit these fleas or antique malls I always grab the free flyers they have laying around usually at the entrance.
When I met Joan this past weekend. She mentioned the Grayslake flea which I had read about (on a flyer). She was nice enough to let me know that it is a great flea to visit. So YES in March I am planning on checking that one out. There is always the one on Roosevelt which is in downtown Chicago and that starts soon - I believe in May.
For you that live in the area don't forget about the Kane County flea and also the Sandwich, IL flea. All of these fleas can be googled. Some of their websites even have where you can leave your info and they will send you stuff through the mail.
I hope this helps all that might be wondering how they can find out where their local flea is.
Here is a link to the Kane County market : http://www.kanecountyfair.com/calendar.cfm or you can try googling ZURKO PROMOTIONS and that should bring up the info for the flea in Wheaton.
Have fun and leave some stuff for me.......
