I’ve been invited to participate in the Editor’s & Designer’s Choice for Charity event at the Randolph Street Market. This is America's largest urban antiques market, and I'm happy to be participating in this.
As one of the invited participants for this event I'll be highlighting items for sale at the market with a blue ribbon. If the items I select are sold, a donation is made to the charity I've chosen.
About my Charity, Su Casa Catholic Worker:
Su Casa operates a family shelter, particularly for people who have experienced domestic violence, and also run a soup kitchen and pantry. On site is a garden, which gardening comrade, Breanne Heath, tells me is one of the hidden garden gems in Chicago. Breanne works at the garden with Growing Home to train people in their landscaping program to prepare for employment. They also grow fruit, vegetables and grains on site to be prepared and served in the shelter and soup kitchen. Breanne also informs me that the site is Chicago's first certified organic farm and they had their first honey harvest about a month ago.
So come to the Randolph Street Market and shop to your hearts content during the Editor's & Designer's Choice for Charity on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 29-30.
I'll be selecting decorative and useful items for the home and garden. As well as things that can easily be repurposed and given new lives in your outdoor and indoor gardens. I may have a beer budget, but I've got champagne taste and I'll certainly pick some of the coolest things available at the market.
