I neglected to add the Modern Vintage Chicago show to the event list for this weekend. Hundreds of vintage and indie-clothing vendors will be under one roof. Eras represented range from Victorian times to the swinging 70s. In the indie category, you'll find organic and environmentally sustainable clothes and accessories as well as one-of-a-kind pieces. Abigail Rutherford, director of vintage couture and accessories at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, will be on hand to answer questions, and there'll be a seamstress on-site to nip, tuck, and let out your treasures where needed.
There's a pre-party tonight for $25; admission Saturday and Sunday is $8 if you prepay on line; $10 at the door.
