Normally held on the third Sunday of every month, Vintage Garage Chicago is a dream destination for anyone who is passionate about all-things-vintage. This flea market is home to anywhere between 75 and 100 vendors each month, displaying retro goodies and antiques on the first three levels of the garage.
Rain or shine, this flea market is always open. The garage is covered, so vendors and customers needn’t worry about getting rained on. It’s also pleasantly surprising how beautiful and Pinterest-like a parking garage looks when it’s filled with knick knacks and vintage oddities.
The admission fee is $5 and lasts for the whole day. The Vintage Garage Chicago welcome families and (friendly) dogs, in fact children under 16 are allowed in for free! Discover vintage clothing, original artwork, intricate jewellery, ornate furniture Midcentury furniture and specifically a lot of items from 1940’s to the 1980’s.
Something fabulous and unique about Vintage Garage is that every month has it’s own theme. The organizers are active on Facebook and create events for every flea market. If you are arranging a wedding anytime soon, make sure you visit the market in August for their Vintage Wedding theme. You will find furniture, ornaments, kitsch bunting, bridesmaid gift ideas and most of all, lots of inspiration!
Other themes include Rockabilly and Record Ramp. Visit their website for more information about their special events. They also encourage dressing up, so choose your best vintage outfit and have some fun. Also, it’s important to note that a theme is just an added bonus, Vintage Garage Chicago will always have a plethora of vintage goodies from every category for sale.
