Celebrate gay pride & amazing finds at the Randolph St Market this weekend
There is probably is no better time to celebrate gay pride than now—as the Supreme Court declares gay marriage legal across the U.S.! And where better than the Randolph Street Market’s own pride weekend celebration tomorrow and Sunday?
Randolph Street Market has been a bastion of cool antiques, knickknacks, jewelry, vintage clothing and furniture (and so much more!) since 2003. And any good Thriftista will buy her tickets online and save $2-35 or more depending on the how many of your friends you bring along. Kids under 12 are free and students just $3 online. You’ll get refund vouchers when you buy at many vendors, so you’re already saving.
Aside from the usual all-day entertainment, beer garden with carnival games and concessions, there will be rainbow-themed bites and drinks, fest fashions from 300+ vintage and indie vendors and photo booths… and more! I’ve heard rumor of a Statue of Liberty body painting “performance,” a print-your-own-stationery workshop, Chicago Center for the Print posters… you won’t be lacking in eye candy.
You can grab a trolley from Water Tower Place and also one in West Loop/Fulton St. Market trolley— it’s eight acres of shopping, so bring comfy shoes. It’s also pet friendly outdoors, though I’d advise you leave your pups at home if this weekend is toasty.
