I was honored this weekend to be contacted and asked to be a judge at the Designer’s Choice for Charity at the Randolph street market in Downtown Chicago. Even though it was a little wet, my cousin, Sandy, and I took and early ride to Chicago. It was very cool to be able to go and participate. I was able to choose 5 items that I thought were amazing, award them with a ribbon, and a portion of the proceeds went to my favorite charity. Mine was for Feed My Starving Children. It’s a charity that we pack meals at through our church. It’s been a great experience for our family and I enjoyed using my design skills for a good cause.
While I walked around, there were also lots of vintage goodies to look at and try not to buy. It was amazing how the vendors had such amazing finds and beautiful displays.
I loved these business cards. I thought they were so clever that they looked just like vintage library cards, which I have a special place for in my heart.
It was so fun to see all of the vintage items and to imagine what kind of possibility they could have.
This vendor had some great industrial pieces as well. It was really, really good I didn’t have my checkbook. There were so many great things to buy, I did buy a vintage locker basket and some vintage jewelry pieces. It was an honor to be a designer in their Designer’s Choice for Charity and to spend the day at the Randolph Street Market. I am looking forward to doing some more flea market shopping next week at the Kane Country Flea Market and then the next week is the Nada Sale!
