Don't you love a bargain?

Jan Weber sure does, but she admits that when she goes to a flea market, she tries to limit her purchases by leaving her credit cards at home.

"When my cash is gone, I'm done," she says. "But then sometimes I go to the cash station and get more."

The longtime Des Plaines resident says she has done so more than once at the annual Flea Market and Craft Fair at the First United Methodist Church of Des Plaines.

"Last year I bought the best Minnie Mouse chair for my granddaughter, and it's perfect," she said.

This year the fair is from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, June 1, at 668 Graceland Ave., in Des Plaines, just south of the Metra tracks.

Local musicians will be on hand, and there will be bratwursts, hamburgers, hot dogs and chips for sale.

The fair will also include a community blood drive from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.; walk-ins are welcome. Those who volunteer to give blood will be entered into a drawing of products and services donated by local merchants.

Parking this year will be available in the city lot on the east side of Graceland and at the church parking lot off Webford Avenue.
