Sunday Funday at the Randolph Street Market

It’s the 1st Sunday in February and while football fans have been looking forward to today for months because of the Super Bowl, I’ve been looking forward to today for a completely different reason – the Randolph Street Market! Forget about the big game, I’ve got shopping to do! Instead of watching people run around with a football; I spent my day rummaging through rows & rows of vintage jewelry, clothing & home décor.

Randolph Street Market - Chicago

The Randolph Street Market started back up this weekend after taking a 2-month break. And despite the cold, vendors filled the inside of Plumbers Hall with unique antiques and shoppers showed up to see what they had. From fur coats to floor lamps, broaches to buttons, artwork & artifacts, there was a wide variety of vintage, and surely something for everyone. Here’s a look at what I spent my day looking at…

And out of all that I went home with this…

Roaring Bear RingMy RrrraaaRRRRRRRRR Ring!

I saw this sterling silver roaring bear’s head the last time I went but didn’t buy it. Since it was still there the second time around I had to scoop it up. Talk about a statement piece that’s fabulous and fierce!

Tiger Print Embroidery

Apparently I was all about the animals today because I also bought the embroidered tiger print on the left. I’ve got a project in mind and have been on the hunt for old needlepoints & embroidery pieces.  I love the intricate stitching and his textured furry face. It’ll be perfect for my project! …don’t worry, I’ll be sure to show you when I’m done. :)
