As I arrived at the Lake County, IL Fairgrounds on a sunny July Sunday for the Grayslake Antique & Collectibles Market, I could see why the show's organizer, Zurko's Midwest Promotions, bills the event as "Chicago's Massive Monthly Antique Market" With over 350 quality dealers filling several buildings and acres of outside space, it certainly fits the description. The monthly show has a 30 year history, with Zurko's taking over management of the show a few years ago. Increased promotion of the event has translated into improved attendance and sales; there's now usually a waiting list of for indoor dealer space. Easy access from I-94 and plenty of free parking insure an easy day trip from just about anywhere in the area.
It was my first time attending the Grayslake Market. Bob Zurko graciously took some time from his buys day to show me around the fairgrounds. I saw quite a few familiar faces of area dealers, but with over 350 of them, most come here from over seven states, including East Coast Dealers.
As a clock buff, one of the first booths that caught by eye was that of dealer Bart Piet. He had quite a few nice clocks, including an unusual early battery operated anniversary clock. It was made in 1904 by the Tiffany Never-Wind Clock Corp. in Buffalo, NY, and had been professionally restored and rewired to accept modern batteries. It was priced at $695. Right next door was the booth of Unforgettable Purses. They carried, as you can imagine, a wide selection of vintage purses; but also lots of great handbags I'd ever seen was found here. With a frame encrusted with rubies, sapphires and emeralds, it certainly justified its $1,500 price tag.
First time dealer Mary Miller put together a great display at her booth. I especially liked an early 20th century cased English picnic set. It was in fine, complete condition, and was priced at $295. At the booth of Division Street Antiques, a wide array of unusual European treasures awaited. I was fascinated with a 19th century German nativity "Putz." Kind of a little glass-fronted diorama, it featured dozens of tiny painted figures, molded from salt dough. It carried a $1,575 asking price.
Dealer John Popyk featured an eclectic selection of "manly" stuff. What a great gift the vintage mint-in-box "Little Atom" miniature cap gun cufflinks would make - only $150 too. They still had the unopened vial of tiny caps included. Also in his booth - a really great looking cast-iron wood duck sprinkler in original paint, with a more serious price tag of $1,250. Well, closing time quickly rolled around, and, as usual, I didn't get through even half of the booths. Luckily, the next Grayslake Antique & Collectibles Market is always just a month away!
Zurko's Midwest Promotions is now in its 35th year of operation, managing shows all around Illinois and Wisconsin. Their Wheaton Antique Market was recently ranked as one of the world's five best flea markets by the travel channel.
