Back from the Mart…and dog tired!

Merchandise Mart Chicago

Oh man! If you’ve ever seen the Merchandise Mart in Chicago, you know how huge just one floor is. I paced up and down every single hall on two floors today. I don’t know if this is still the case, but the Mart used to have more square footage than any other building in North America. That’s a LOT of walking.


I found many really cute additions for the shop, including product from two new vendors who specialize in reproduction vintage-style glassware. I ordered a ton of new stuff including jadeite and pale blue pressed glass measuring cups, mixing bowls, salt and pepper shakers, butter dishes…whew! Also picked up several new Amy Butler bags and some really pretty antiqued garden lanterns. In a couple of weeks it’ll be like Christmas around here!
