European Flea Market at Jayson


Last night I went to the preview of Jayson Home & Garden's European Flea Market which is happening only for this weekend through Sunday. They have a wonderful mix of antiques, furniture spanning multiple eras, rare finds—like old swords, hotel silver, and vintage oil paintings. I could barely pair down which photos to post because everything was great. Having lived in Europe as a kid, I can say they absolutely nailed the outdoor European market feeling, especially with the aroma of Belgian Zücker Waffles filling the air next to an alley of fresh flowers. If you're in Chicago you have to check this out, and if you're not, consider booking a flight in. You can stay with me. 1885 N. Clybourn Ave.

Their flowers are the best in Chicago! I can't wait to go to the flea market. Thanks for the idea!

Lizzie==I grew up in Chicago (now LA) and this is indeed a fabulous market. A favorite when I visit, which is often, but not as often as I'd like.
