Stl. 8 12 MEMBER FEOEIUI DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION By Marie Sissula* This week I want to tell our readers something about flea markets. There is lots of controversy between antique shows and flea markets. I've been guilty of saying that most flea markets have nothing but a lot of junk. Well - today I'm "eating my own words". The reason -We packed boxes for hours, loaded our station wagon and headed out to Kane County fairgrounds in St. Charles. We left our shop shortly after 5:00 A.M. Sunday, arriving there around 6:00 A.M. By the time we arrived, then- were cars, station wagons, trucks and trailers lined up for almost half a mile. We waited until 7:00 A.M. before the place opened. Then it was a mad scramble. We set up our tables outside. It was foggy and the grass was wet so we moved fast to stay warm. By 8:00 the weather cleared and it was a beautiful day. Before the crowds thronged in, I walked around to some of the other booths close to ours and believe me, I was really sin - prised to see so many beautiful things on display. There was everything from lovely old furniture to the most gorgeous art glass and the most surprising thing of all is that the prices were so reasonable. We started packing what we didn't sell about 4:00 P.M. I was almost sorry to see the day end. From the time we got our booth set up until we left, there was a constant crowd of people. I've never seen anything like it. Everyone was friendly and so nice. The atmosphere was one of relaxation and there wasn't that strained tense feeling that I've felt at some antique shows. Everyone was there to sell their merchandise, yet there wasn't that feeling of competition that I feel at antique shows. I'm not "knocking" antique shows. They're great too but this flea market was a real experience and I heartily recotn- ment it to anyone. Any time you have a few hours or even minutes to spare, a good flea market is a great place to spend it. After eight hours in the fresh clean air, I slept almost 12 straight hours and I feel like a million. Try it sometime! Middle School P.T.A.
