Flea the City
By Alice Oglethorpe
I know, I know…it’s the opposite of flea-market weather out there. But it is time to start planning your vintage shopping trips for the spring and summer. Instead of scouring a market solo this year, think about signing up for a flea market field trip with Come Flea With Me. The two sisters who run Come Flea With Me handle all of the logistics—getting there, tickets to the market, snacks, and more. All you have to do is show up! The 2013 schedule was just announced and there are six trips in all, including ones to the Kane County Flea Market, Elkhorn Antiques and Flea Market, and Grayslake Antique and Flea Market. Reserve your spot soon—last year the trips sold out fast.
