CHICAGO (January 24, 2012) – The Vintage Bazaar, the pop-up flea market which since its founding in 2010 has “popped up” in a series of vacant storefronts and event spaces in Chicago including Congress Theater and the Empty Bottle, announced today the next incarnation of its traveling, temporary vintage markets will be a return to the market’s original venue: the DANK Haus, at 4740 N. Western Ave. in Lincoln Square. The event will run Saturday, February 11 from 12pm-6pm and Sunday, February 12 from 11am-5pm. Shopper admission is $5.
The Vintage Bazaar focuses on unique and affordable home furnishings and clothing for budget-minded shoppers with discerning taste.
