Customers shared laughs with vendors as they discussed the history and background of pieces of furniture and vintage clothing Sunday on the second day of the Zurko Antique and Flea Market at the Lake County Fairgrounds in Grayslake.
"This is the premier show in Chicago, size wise and quality wise," promoter Bob Zurko said. "It's a good mixture of everything from high-end to medium to collectible stuff. People are interested in all kinds of antiques and collectibles from old bottles to high end porcelains, pocket watches, and Disney collectibles, country furniture, superhero collectibles and stuff like that."
Thousands of antiques and collectibles were on display during this market, which had a special accent on vintage clothing and accessories. Other items included country furniture, estate jewelry, postcards, art glass and porcelains, advertising items and old toys.
"It's a great show," said vendor Pam Dallstream of Lake Barrington. "Yesterday was busy even with the storm. We are just hoping to have a lot of traffic today."
The next Grayslake antiques market will be May 10 and 11. For more events at the Lake County Fairgrounds, visit www.lcfair.com.
