When I first started out selling at RandolphStreetMarket it was me, an umbrella and my vintage CADILLAC! Well, can you believe that I now have 2 pop up tents, 5-6 tables and a full booth! Take a look at how I have upgraded over the years........

Button Beginnings

For those of you who know how I got started in antiques, know how I began with a boatload of buttons. My mom was a huge sewing collector, probably one of the largest in the Midwest. She was a member of the Illinois Button Society as well as the NSBS. Well, as a kid it really wasn't my cup of tea.
Years passed.....
When she moved, I did the best I could to sell buttons on Ebay, Craigslist and in person with other dealers and collectors. Now, I am pleased to announce, I am offering them on Etsy....the real good ones.

The ones that were carded, juried for competition and the rare and best of the sewing collectible market. So stay tuned and BUTTON UP!

Cat's PJ's Fashion Show in Elgin

Last year my goal was to finally exhibit at the Cat's Pajama's show in Elgin. Thanks to my lovely friend Pinar, I finally accomplished that goal. We loaded in right away, checked out the AMAZING assortment of Midwest vendors and then got dolled up for an evening of Rockabilly music, dancing and drinks....and selling vintage of course!
