I can't believe it is June already...oh my!

I wanted to share some news...we had a wonderful day at the chicago antique market, sales were good, weather was beautiful, and the crowd was the best they have ever had! We came home tired but with a lighter trailer!

The best part about the day was that we were asked by a shop owner in Chicago if we would like to consign our antiques with her!! She had just opened a 2nd shop named Brimfield and she is located in Andersonville ( a neighborhood in Chicago)!! I am soooooooooooo excited...this was our goal that we set for ourselves when we decided to set up at the Chicago show. We wanted to network with other shop owners and get our little shoppe out of "Fairbury Illinois"! We are planning on taking our things after July 4th and seeing where it goes from there. I talked to Julie today and she said that Country Living wants to do an article on her shops. (insert happy dance here:) Check out Julie's shop here at this link...http://www.strangeclosets.com/?p=8216

Well, that's all for now...we are getting ready to change displays for the 4th so I hope to keep this blog updated with those pics!!! I'm trying!!!

Andersonville is very cool. (The Swedish Museum is there!) Plus "SCOUT" which is a super cute store.

I'm so happy for you!! Good luck on this new adventure!!
