May Day Weekend Roundup

Like the opening sequence of the Simpsons, the clouds are scheduled to move on, and one day soon we’ll catch a glimpse of blue sky.


From the oeuvre of posts on Craigslist, it looks that garage sale season has officially opened in neighborhoods around the city.

boxes1May first is also a heavily-trafficked move in/move out day, as Chicagoans choose a change of scenery from their apartment windows. Take a new route home or out to get coffee and you might find something useful or a piece awaiting your rehab.


Saturday, the Chicago Antiques Market rolls out the asphalt carpet for celebrity shoppers like you and me at the Swap Meet in Soldier Field. Shout out to Ally, who sent a reminder of the event.  I plan to make the scene, along with blogger Green Cricket.  The doors open at 7 am and close at 3.  What’s up for you this weekend?  Meet you back here on Monday and we’ll swap stories.
