If you thought last year was a record year for the growth in popularity for the Vintage Market scene in the city, just wait until this year. Vintage Promotions, the same company that produces the Vintage Garage off Argyle in Uptown is cleaning out the closet and prepping for the season opener of The North Shore Flea May 12th.
More than 2,000 people shopped the season opener of Vintage Garage Chicago last month and that number is just going to keep growing throughout the summer. Entry to the market for shoppers is free and at this inaugural market, there's also no price to be a vendor, meaning that you'll have a ton of stuff to shop from.
