The world-renowned Randolph Street Market is the largest and liveliest urban antiques market in the USA. Based in Chicago, it features 250 vendors spanning over 8 acres and has drawn thousands of loyal followers from Saudi Arabia, New York, Beijing and beyond. The award winning market caters to collectors, art buyers, stylists, and vintage aficionados including celebrity shoppers such as Vince Vaughn and Nate Berkus.

The market led the way for other great vintage markets and was conceptualised because founder, collector and party planner Sally Schwartz often had to travel miles outside of Chicago to shop for authentic period props for parties she was decorating.

“It didn’t make sense that there wasn’t a big antique market in the third largest city in the country,” says Schwartz. Celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, the Randolph Street Market is now the largest and liveliest urban antiques market in the US and last year attracted more than 80,000 shopping fans.

On July 27 and 28 the opening event of 2013 officially kicks off and will include fashion shows, artisan food and drink vendors, body paint artists, relaxation treatments, and live music. Seasonal tickets are available on Randolph street market’s official website for $150 each.
