The dog days of summer may be over but it’s not time to head inside. We’ve got three outdoor markets you’ll want to explore this Saturday and Sunday. Chock full of vintage and handmade goods, we think these markets are an ideal way to spend an afternoon. Check out why we’ve got market fever.
Randolph Street Market in Chicago, Illinois
Make the Randolph Street Market part of your back to school shopping. The monthly market is stocked with unique secondhand and vintage clothes, decor, and furniture. Sandpiper Import’s Krrb corner has some new bags you’ll want to tote around campus. Pick up delicate lace-inspired necklaces from Branchbound and colorful beaded earrings from Colleen’s Jewelry Collection. Need a new desk for your studies? Midwest Mantiques has a fun upcycled take on tables and Montalbano Furniture has plenty of antique schoolhouse desks.
Le Garage Sale in Austin, Texas
You don’t want to miss Le Garage Sale in Austin this weekend. The two day shopping event brings together the area’s independent shops at wallet-friendly prices. You’ll find great deals on everything from handmade jewelry to vintage clothes and home furnishings. And really, what’s more neighborly than supporting local businesses? Visit Le Garage Sale at Palmer Events Center, Hall 2, 900 Barton Springs Road in Austin.
Treasure Island Flea in San Francisco, California
Take advantage of the beautiful weather this weekend to search for treasures of your own at the Treasure Island Flea. The monthly event is held just off the coast of San Francisco. There is plenty to see and do all weekend at this market such as crafting at several DIY workshops and taking in America’s Cup World Series Boating Race. If you’re looking to put your feet up, relax inside the Mobile Man Cave. Be sure to preview what’s available at Treasure Island Flea before you go.
