ANTIQUE TRADER INTERVIEWS SALLY SCHWARTZ  
ANTIQUE TRADER INTERVIEWS SALLY SCHWARTZ    06/17/2011
Antique Shows Flea Market
Antiques show promoters have to roll with the punches. Besides having to work with hundreds of exhibitors they also have to make an event smooth and enjoyable for thousands of attendees. Hold your event outside and all bets are off.

In spite of all her staff's best efforts and simply put, an amazing array of the best vintage wares around, Mother Nature certainly rained on promoter Sally Schwartz's May Randolph Street Market show opening in Chicago. This season opener is a big deal - the coolest merch is found here offered by the coolest sellers this side of a May Brimfield.

So Sally and her intrepid crew are gearing up for the June 25-26 market with the theme of "June is the new May!" The show is held in monthly May through September at 1340 W. Randolph Street, Chicago.

Antique Trader chatted with Sally and learned how to kick summertime weather setbacks in the kebabs and come out planning another great show.....

HARRY RINKER REVIEWS RANDOLPH STREET MARKET  
HARRY RINKER REVIEWS RANDOLPH STREET MARKET   06/15/2011
Antique Shows Flea Market
After attending Chicago’s Randolph Street Market, I left feeling the future of the antiques and collectibles business is in good hands. The show was filled with young people, couples, and families. It has been over 10 years since I experienced this level of buzz at a show. Where has a show like this been? How did I miss hearing about it?

The show has something for everyone and everyone’s pocket. Although Modernism, outsider art, and crafts dominate, the antiques sector is well represented. My first impression from walking the show was how affordable everything is priced. The dealers come to sell and sell they do.

I have been preaching for years that today’s dealers need to give buyers what they want and not what they think they want. The Randolph Street Market does this. Sellers have material that matches current hot decorator looks and fashion styles. Vintage clothing and accessory dealers provide plenty of brand name merchandise.

Antique Shows Flea Market
We are so excited to have Martin Willis from San Francisco, driving all the way to Chicago to showcase his wonderful paintings! According to Martin, who started the Antique & Auction Podcast and knows and sells a great deal of expensive art, the pieces he is showcasing at Randolph Street Market are from his "twisted imagination". He can't stop painting, "plein air" to abstract, you'll see and be able to buy scenes from the Pacific coastline to Van Gogh-ish pastorals to cubist gems. Can't wait to see and be seduced by Martin's paintings!

Here's what Larry has to say about this sensational relic: "A relative of mine asked to sell this QRS suitcase windup functional phonograph. It has it's own supply of steel needles and sounds great. Has storage for a few 10" records and needle bin. Asking $150 The wind up is the center/front hole with a crank handle enclosed."

Antique Shows Flea Market
Talk about reinventing something, in a time when some people consider actual books to be old-school, Betsy breathes new life into beaten and battered tomes, with beautiful works of art! "Each of my books is carefully folded- never cut or glued- into an original design. Care is taken to select books that have been cast off, neglected, and have lost their value as readable books. By reworking them into small works of art, I like to think I'm giving them a second life."
