Elkhorn Flea Market

I'm totally excited to be going to The Elkhorn, WI flea market on May 18th. That's the flea market that the infamous button lady works at. I hope she's still kicking because I really want to visit her stall under the bleachers.

If you live nearby I urge you to check out the market. It is far cleaner than the Kane County, IL flea market and not as overwhelming large. And the roasted corn is the best. When I was pregnant I stopped at the end of each aisle to buy something. I'd do a row, buy a funnel cake. Do a row, buy a brat. It was heaven.

I'll be there with my mom and my sister. Just look for the blonde lady humping the leg of any good button seller. And I promise to take pictures.

I just found your blog-- hilarious. I didn't know anyone else knew about the Elkhorn flea market. One of my favorites. Makes me miss WI a little.

Fun times! Hey do you know a good place to buy pearl snaps. I'm making my sister-in-law a "duster" for her 50th birthday. I was telling her about it, she thinks its a joke, and said she only wanted it if it had pearl snaps. I've looked around but can't find any.

Oh, forget about you taking pictures. Make sure mom or sis gets a shot of you humping the button lady's leg. I would pay $3 for that. Maybe $4.

If it's two things that get me hot, it's man ass and FLEA MARKETS!!!

I WANNA GO!!

I think that I may like Flea markets more than man ass.

Kevin - You're not kidding. I'm all squirmy just thinking about all those goodies waiting for me to find them!

Picture of you humping her leg? I for one perfer humping anyones leg who can make a good old fashioned chocolate milkshake with real icecream. I guess we all have our weakness.

Hey! It's me... planning to go tomorrow and I "googled" Elk Horn Flea Market and there you were - of course. Are you ready to wrestle for the good buttons?!? Then we can share a brat and search out a beer :)

I just went to the Elkhorn Flea Market this past Sunday, June 28th, and visited The Button Lady that my mom has been wanting me to see for a long time. Her station was there, but she was not.... It was her LAST SHOW! I guess she is in the hospital and recovering from surgery. I was bummed about that, but excited to get to buy her buttons. Check out my blog for pics on our adventure.

Noooooo! I totally couldn't go this time!! I was going to go in August. Will any of her kids carry on for her?

ThePaperButton said...

I'm not sure. The two ladies that were there were her niece and some other lady that was probably her sister or something. They didn't say if anyone was going to carry it on...but it did sound like she was going to sell her collection still, but out of the home I assume. I just posted stuff about it on my blog.
