On Your Marks…Get Set…Shop!
Well one of my favorite times of the year is right around the corner. “Is it Halloween?” you might ask, or “Is it Christmas?”. To both of these I would have to answer a resounding “No!”. It’s Market Place Magic time and holiday shopping at its best! I look forward to this event every single year and have for, well, for the last 4 years that I’ve been attending. I really don’t even like to shop all that much but this one time of year, I make the exception. If you’ve never had the chance, made the time or maybe you’ve just never heard of it. You, my friend, are missing out on a “Girls Shopping Dream”. With everything from Harold’s Hot Mustard, Simply Wine, to Cool Water Jewelery and one of my all time favorites….The Nut Shack. You will find just about everything you need (and then you will find out there’s more that you need, that you didn’t even know you needed!). Confused yet? Well don’t be. Head down to Market Place Magic at the Metra Expo Center and see for yourself! It all starts on Friday, Nov. 2nd, open 12 p.m.-7 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 3rd 1 a.m.- 7 p.m., and wrapping up on Sunday Nov. 4th, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.. Admission for Adults is only $3(or you can get a weekend pass for only $5, so you can keep coming back to get the extra stuff you forgot you needed) and children are free! I don’t mean that you get “Free children” there either. However, you can bring yours along, without there being a charge. And the kids will love the Children’s Museum area too! It’s guaranteed to be one of the most fun shopping experiences you’ve ever had. Come down and join me there! I’ll be the one trying on the hats, scarves, jewelry. Pretty much anything I can get my hands on that makes my “Eyes Pop” without making my husband’s, “Pop Out” of his head!
