Life is good. Not only is it Friday, it's time for another Modern Vintage Chicago! With 75 of the top dealers in the region (From NYC to Texas) offering quality vintage merch, we're like kids in a candy store.
Along with clothing (think Hermès, Vivienne Westwood, Pucci, Dior), accessories, estate and costume jewelry, there's also super-cool vintage fashion magazines, patterns, and notions from the midcentury, Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Victorian, and ‘60s and ‘70s eras.
Indie designers have a presence at this treasure trove, too. Sort through apparel, gemstones, and accessories from Agga B, Double Stitch, Asia B. Jewelry, Lisa Strecker, and more.
Parking is free (there's a big ol' lot), and it only costs $8 to get in — $10 in at the gate. Purchase advanced tickets online. If you're a student, you get the bargain of the century: $3 admission. The market is open on Saturday, October 20, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, October 21, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
