When and how did your business get started?
The Find Market event opened on Oct. 17, 2013, for it's first four-day market. It is a great venue to showcase over 40 vendors in antiques, shabby chic, industrial, vintage, cottage, mid century, rustic and primitives from over seven states.
What is your business best known for?
The Find Market event is preparing to open its doors to the public again Thursday, Dec. 19, introducing a whole new venue to the traditional antique/vintage bazaars we have grown accustomed to here in the suburbs of Chicago.
Unlike the regular rows of endless vendor booths, The Find Market event uses every nook and cranny in its 7,000+ square foot indoor location to bring vignettes to life featuring antiques, industrial goods, handmade shabby chic, vintage items, mid-century treasures plus cottage, primitive and rustic items.
40-plus vendors from a seven state areas have brought their "finds" to the Plainfield location and the talented design team have worked their magic to create settings that show not what a piece is but what it can be.
Everyone has fallen in love with a cool piece but hesitated to purchase it because they didn’t know what to do with it once it gets home. Here at the find market event, we make that easier by letting our customers see not just what it is, but what it potentially could be in their home.
December times are:
Thursday, Dec. 19 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Friday, Dec. 20 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Saturday, Dec. 21 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Sunday, Dec. 22 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Why did you choose the town you did to open your business?
The Route 30 Plex building allows easy access for all our customers both local and those who travel from out of state.
What's something interesting about your business your customers might not know?
We feature vendors that have never shown in any of the Chicago Markets before, so they are offering great new ideas and goods.
