Mark your calendar for some major vintage action: The Randolph Street Market Festival returns to the West Loop September 28 and 29. The sprawling antiques market is packed with vendors slinging clothing, jewelry, and accessories. There's also a full bar, which makes it even more fun to try on funky old hats and oversize sunglasses.
And, good news if you're looking to replace that "Starry Night" print with something a little fresher. New to this market is a "Starving Artists" tent, which features the work of five School of the Art Institute of Chicago graduates.
