The Buyer's Flea Market- putting Bespangled and Bejeweled back in Feliz Navidad!

'Tis the season!
Strolling always feels more productive if it's with your offspring snug on your chest in his daddy pack. Especially if he's smiling a lot.
Today Aiden and I killed a couple hours walking the 30+ indoor and outdoor aisles of
The Buyers Flea Market
(4545 W Division St. Chicago, 8 to 5 Saturday & Sunday).
If I felt more comfortable whipping out my giant fancy camera while the vendors wondered what I was up to, I'd have more arty photos to share, but hopeful my bashful crappy cel
lphone snaps will give you an idea if this is, or isn't, the ideal place for you to do all your Christmas shopping.
Buyer's is full of auto parts, the most pimped out boom boxes and speakers, everything Ed Hardy ever put his signature on, bootleg toys, music and movies,
outfit's for the curvy females in your life,
and all the men's outfit's you'll need if you ever decide to move to a ranch.
And much more. Usually covered in spangles.
It's well worth the half a buck entrance fee to check it out every few years!

"Mitch, you're looking so sexy!" the ladies are always saying.
Now you know my little secret!

Of course, mannequins are necessary to get an idea of how you'd look in an outfit.
In this case, you'd get a pretty good idea of the clothing AND how you'd look on crack!

 A tip of the hat to the backfield in motion mannequins
that you'd never find at Target or Walmart...

It was quite the painful delivery!

This underwear packaging... OMG!
I didn't take a photo of it when I first walked by
because even I was too creeped out.
But right before I left I decided to rise above my personal
distaste and document it for you, my blog buddies!
I just hope these kids are still alive!

Where's the Andy Rooney?
