The Leather Daddy and the Queen Anne Side Table

I wonder if this counts as business casual...Buy this lovely pie safe.  Perfect for storing china, linens, and your IML whip collection.
Happy Memorial Day Weekend, everyone! (I sense the holiday weekend starting early this year – if only in my head…) Heads up on two weekend events that may tickle your fancy. Or, um, whatever you choose to have tickled.

Starting today, you can enjoy the annual delights of the International Mr. Leather gathering. Get a weekend package and come for the whole thing. Or, just wander over to the Hyatt Regency and peruse the daily Leather Market.

Of course, if leather isn’t your thing (you Trixie prude, you), there’s another market this weekend that might feel more inviting. So leave the Sunday Times until later and motor down to the new Chicago Antique Market. Starting this Sunday, the Chicago Antique Market will be open the last Sunday every month through October – at Randolph between Ada and Ogden. Doors (gates?) open at 8am for people who want to shell out $35 for an advance peek at the indoor vendors and at 10am for the rest of us ($8 admission fee). There’s free parking, y’all. And a chance to peruse all sorts of items that you really don’t need but feel compelled to purchase anyway. Joy!

*The only thing that makes me sad is that accommodations for the Antique Market are at the Palmer House – and that’s where last year’s International Mr. Leather was as well. Think of the exciting confluence of events had IML stayed at the Palmer again this year…

    Perhaps I will appoint my newly acquired leather daddy (or house footman) to carry the freshly purchased decanting table I so carefully purchased from the antique market to my home.
    Alas, It shall be a grand Memorial Day weekend. So it is it is said…so it shall be done.
