Meet Nini at the Kane County Flea Market August 31, and September 1


The Kane County Flea Market in St Charles is known as the "Best in the Midwest or Anywhere," so Nini decided to give it a whirl. This Market has been in operation for the last 51 years . As one of the longest running, best antique and collectable Flea Markets in the world, it promises to be fun! Nini will be in the Trades building with air plants, fairy and gnome garden items, halloween miniatures, jewelry, and some surprises. Shopping hours are Saturday from 12pm-5pm & Sunday from 7am-4pm. Admission $5 per adult, children under 12 are free when accompanied by an adult, and parking is free. The market is located at the Kane County Fair Grounds at 525 South Randall Road, St Charles, IL.

  • The Market at Richardson Farm is done for the season. I met some great people there and enjoyed selling air plants, succulents, fairy garden items, and more. I will be taking a break from venues for the next couple of weeks, but folks can still contact me to make an appointment to stop by my humble abode to peruse fairy/troll garden items and air plants. Soon I'll post information on my next venue. Meanwhile, enjoy the last of summer and getting the kids ready for school!
  • Nini will be in spot 11 at the annual Antioch Women's Club "Garage Sale" from 8 am to 2 pm this Mother's Day at the Williams Park Pavilion. Williams Park is just up the road when you turn off of route 83 towards the Antioch Public Library. Nini plans to bring air plants, jewelry, and some fun surprises, so bring Mom and get her something pretty from Nini!
  • I'm considering a couple of workshops that will kick off with a complimentary wine tasting with cheese & crackers for those over 21, followed by making a project. One workshop project would be to make an air plant display in a wine glass ($25). The second workshop project would be making a log planter container garden with a little pond, a fairy, & a miniature swan ($55). The photos below show examples. For the air plant display, the wine glasses, plants, and baubles may vary slightly according to what is available at the time, but would be of the same quality as shown. The log planters, ponds, & swans will not vary from what is in the photo, but the pictured fairy may not be in stock. You would choose your fairy from the selection that is in stock at the time. Nini keeps a nice variety of cute fairies and gnomes in stock, so you'll have a variety of choices. More miniature elements will also be available at additional cost. If you live near Antioch IL and think you would be interested in either type of workshop, please let me know via email to ninisgifts@gmail. Then I can keep you posted as plans for the workshops develop.
