Randolph Street Market

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

On Saturday I ventured over to the Randolph Street Market with Alaina, Alex + Shari. This is one of my favorite things to do in Chicago. I went twice last year and couldn't wait to go again this year. My best friend even scheduled her trip around this event last September. True story.

It was my goal to find the perfect end table for $100. I am happy to say that I found the most gorgeous bar cart for $75! It is 1000x better than anything I could have hoped for. She now resides next to my bed. I shall call her Joan. If you watch Mad Men, you will understand why when you see this...

 Isn't she beautiful?

And this one change inspired me to finally sell my dresser, move the gorgeous white dresser from my living room into my bedroom and purchase a new TV console for my living room. That all went down this weekend. All the moving + building has left me feeling exhausted but I am finally loving my bedroom. Thank you, Randolph Street Market!

A few more fun + beautiful finds.

That's me, Alaina is behind me. You can see Alex + Shari to the right.

Would die to have the space for this piece. Love it.

We had such a nice time walking around. I even treated myself to a strawberry popsicle. It's the simple things...It was so fun looking at all the gorgeous furniture, jewelry + accessories. I could spend hours there. And that it exactly what I did.

One more thing scratched off the summer bucket list!
Cannot wait to go back again next month!


  1. Oh I love Joan! It's such a great addition to your home.

  2. joan?!! LOVE it. when does mad men come back on? xoxo jillian:: cornflake dreams

  3. Love that bar cart! and what a great idea to use it as your bedside table!! You sure found some great things! Even if you couldn't take them home, the images are still great to look at! ( sometimes that just satisfies me a bit to where I don't feel like I need it anymore ;)

  4. Can't wait for the next one! It is definitely one of my summer faves and I have been so busy on the weekends with no time to go! Love that beautiful bar cart, such a classy lady.

  5. Yay for the post! I will have to combine some of yours and Alaina's pics for my post. If you have any other ones please send. Can't wait to see you tomorrow!

  6. Just got reallllllly excited!! MUST go to this next month!! AND I love Joan :)

  7. Nice! Looks like you scored some good finds! I wish this would have been a little earlier in the year so I could have gone. I love this kind of thing. And thank you for naming the cart Joan. I do watch Mad Men and definitely think it's appropriate. :)

  8. I love using a bar cart next to the bed. You're so inventive. Me on the other hand, I'm lazy.

  9. Definitely just put the July 30th-31st dates in my calendar. I need a coffee table!!

  11. That bar cart is a steal! I'm hunting for something similar, fingers crossed!
