February in Chicago generally can be a chilly, gloomy month, fortunately The Vintage Bazaar popped back up last weekend with a special cocktail shopping soiree event to help liven up the winter scene. Friday the 15th marked the third anniversary of The Vintage Bazaar, they were back in the space where it all began, the Dank Haus German Cultural Center in Lincoln Square. The curated market featured 25 vendors selling clothing, home decor, jewelry and furniture. I attended the evening kickoff event that included cocktails by Scofflaw, tacos by Big Star and photos by Smilebooth.
I'm posing above with my friend Kaitlin, we're both showing off our finds from the market.
Fortunately all the vendors were familiar faces, Linda of Morning Glory Collectibles must know that vintage cats are my Kryptonite! Look at those black ad white cat photos above and the cat knick knacks in the following photos.

Plants for sale in Apt528's booth had me dreaming of Spring.
Wonderful merhandising as usual in Hot House Market's booth. Doesn't the fox below remind you of a children's illustrated book?

Things got a little out of hand when Sarah got a hold of the photobooth remote!
