Friends, flea market, food!

Where do I begin? After many failed attempts of garage and Facebook tag sales my friend Kari and I found our niche in the form of the Kane county flea market. We only had 27 days from signing up to organize our collective ideas and projects together.
As we began setting up our booth we fell in love with our treasures all over again and felt a sentimentality toward them.
Day one was such a success that we are currently rushing around to scrape together last minute projects to fill our otherwise empty booth! Between the requests for our business cards and store location we decide we had better ask our husbands to increase our "grocery allowance"!
All in all the day was a success! My best friend Annie surprised us with a visit from the city! As our treasures ran low she merchandised our booth while her fiancé Brian shopped for bacon ends...we are still waiting to hear what he whips up with those? :).

Kari, her husband kelly, and I ended the day with dinner at Zaza's trattoria and capped the night off with a baileys infused cappuccino.
Thank goodness for daylight savings!!!
Stay tuned for details from closing day!
