The summer time in Chicago is full of non stop things to do and events! The majority of what am involved in is of course Vintage. This past weekend I had the pleasure of selling again at the Randolph Street Market. A monthly sale of interesting Antiques and Vintage collectors. Unfortunately this time around, my brother Jon wasn't able to sell with me, but man oh man were people asking for him! The weather was perfect, I seriously couldn't have asked for better weather! Sunny with a cool breeze = bliss! I met some of the most amazing people, readers of my blog and just vintage lovers, including a girl whom never has bought vintage! What?!?! I exclaimed. So I was very, very, very happy to be her first. And boy did she go all out! I am waiting for a picture from her so I can show it to all of you. I will have pictures later of the sale for you today/tonight:)

 In the meantime, this weekend! Let's talk about that:)

Come celebrate the 4th of July in style at Vintage Heaven for it's monthly Big Vintage summer sale! Featuring 10-15 local vintage vendors from all over Chicago with such a variety of styles suitable for all Men & Women!

Dethrose Vintage just got a whole lot of "new" inventory! Styles of the 1950s into the 1990s, literally something for everyone!  

50% of proceeds from Dethrose Vintage will donated to a medical fund for my mother, Sharyn, who has recently fallen ill. My mother does not have the proper health insurance to cover her hospital stay and upcoming surgeries. The first bill for a 3 day stay in the hospital was the sum of someone's salary. My mother has always been there for me and now it is my turn to do whatever I can for her. So I will be doing everything possible to raise enough money throughout the summer aiding in taking care of my mother Sharyn. Including donating 50% of my Etsy profits as well. All I want is my mother to have a stress free mind and body when going through this. So why not use what I love doing to support someone I love!

I hope to see you all there!!!

Hi Karyn, I am from Singapore, and have bought from your etsy shop:)). Sorry it is not possible to go to your vintage heaven summer sale, I bet it is lots of fun. Vintage is not popular in Singapore too, and I have never heard of this until I stumble upon some blogs somewhere in March this year. The long polka dots dress I bought from you was one of my very first vintage wear! Now I love sourcing for vintage wear from etsy!
hope that your mom will be ok, and recover soon. I'll check on your shop daily to see if you have any new updates, and will try to get some nice stuff:)). Do take care!
