Scenes from Randolph Street Market!

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

Gang:

As you know if you follow us on Facebook, this past weekend John and I were invited by our dear pal and interior design guru Kenneth Ludwig to display our vintage wares at Chicago’s Randolph Street Market. So John and I packed up the trusty Subaru with all sorts of fun finds and headed to the Middle West. Once there, we unpacked and combined our treasures (along with larger pieces that we had left in Chicago on a recent visit for this very purpose) in the striped Sally’s Cabana with Kenneth’s gorgeous upholstered pieces and case goods. Along with Kenneth’s terrific staff and his wonderful partner, Darren, we hawked and hustled and had a blast.

Here are some scenes from our long weekend at Randolph Street Market. Enjoy!

Escape from New York!

All packed up and ready to go. We left the dogs behind in NYC with a pal who house sits for us often.

The Big O!

Randolph Street Market sits just down the street from Oprah's studios. If you are a fan of Oprah's, this might impress you.

Men of the Moment!

John with the incredible Kenneth Ludwig, our host. Kenneth runs a divine showroom in Chicago's Merchandise Mart AND has Studio KL nearby. If you don't know Ken, you should.

It Takes Two!

Hanging out with the wonderful and hilarious Darren Fink, Kenneth's partner. Darren is a treat!

Banner Day!

Here's one of the Madcap Cottage banners that we had "run up." Fun, no?

All Wrapped Up!

John unpacks our wares...

Propping, propping!

John and I hung loads of Chinese lanterns and created charming "vignettes" throughout the tent. Amazingly, the green-painted pine hutch didn't sell, but it can now be purchased at Kenneth's Merchandise Mart showroom, #1445.

Stripe Tease!

Here's Sally's Cabana in action... Chic, nest-ce pas?

China Syndrome!

Two of our fabulous vintage Fitz & Floyd china figurines that we sold...

Top Germans!

Here I am hanging out with the gal who ran Randolph Street Market's rollicking beer garden. Lord have mercy.

Mildred a Go-Go!

The delicious Mildred who works with Ken gets packed up by Miller and John Covington... Mildred is a pistol and goes by the nickname "Whitney Houston."

Packed Up

The trusty Subaru is packed up and ready for the long haul back to NYC. The drive is fine until you reach Pennsylvania, and then it is endless and D-U-L-L!

Eastern Promises!

Monday, November 26th, 2012

Swatch Watch!

Here's John with the divine Lydia Pomey in the swatch room at Eastern Accents, a sprawling factory in Chicago's Avondale neighborhood that makes the most amazing pillows, bed linens, headboards, and other home goods.

Gang:

I hope that everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving!

John and I were in Baltimore for the holiday are are now currently in London and loving every second of it.

But let’s backtrack two weeks (we certainly keep you on your toes, n’est-ce pas?)…

John and I flew out to Chicago to tour the amazing Eastern Accents factory in the city’s Avondale neighborhood and to discuss some possible business. Might there be private label Madcap Cottage pillows in the works?

Do stay tuned!

Meanwhile, here’s a little tour of Eastern Accents.

Trim Time!

John goes bananas for the vast selection of trims to be found at Eastern Accents, including the myriad ribbons.

Fabric of Life!

Eastern Accents boasts massive machines that cut the fabrics with lasers.

Sew What?

Here's the immaculate and light-filled sewing room at Eastern Accents. John and I love anything Made in America.

Details, Details!

An Eastern Accents worker sews delicious details into a pillow.

Don't Give a Down!

Here are bundles of down feathers ready to be stuffed into pillows.

Fabric of Life!

John and Lydia peruse Eastern Accents' vast fabric library. We unearthed some real treasures that reflect the Madcap Cottage duo's passion for color and pattern.

A Visit to Chicago’s Jayson Home!

Tuesday, November 13th, 2012

Jayson, Jayson, Jayson!

John and I paid a visit today to Jayson Home, a terrific--and inspiring--shop in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood.

Gang:

Whew! It’s been quite the week… HGTV filmed Madcap Cottage in upstate New York on Saturday then John and I zipped back to NYC and then on to Chicago on Sunday. And then our fifth One Kings Lane Tastemaker Tag Sale kicked-off this morning. Have you scoped our fabulous wares? Honestly, I think this sale has the best selection of merchandise that we have offered yet. Our sale ends on the 16th, so go do some shopping! We have loads of holiday-ready gifts…

But back to Chicagoland!

This morning, John and I visited Chicago’s very chic Jayson Home, a retail outpost that mixes vintage finds with contemporary goods… And we were both quite impressed. Magical retail spaces that inspire seem to be something from the past, but, happily, Jayson Home really gets it and challenges the consumer to craft environments that are unique and bespoke.

Affair with a Chair!

Jayson Home is known for its whimsical displays, including vignettes such as these chairs that seemingly spill to the floor.

Faux Bois Brilliance!

There's nothing better than some faux bois paired with cement mushrooms! I just love a wondrous woodland vignette!

Cook the Books!

John peruses the terrific book selection at Jayson Home. We just love a good coffee table book about fabulous interiors.

Talking Trends at KBIS!

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

Video Vixens!

John and I were recently in Chicago to attend the KBIS show as guests of Silestone. Click on the image, above, and watch the video of us talking about our five favorite products that we spotted at the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show.

Gang:

Between our far-flung trips to China and LA, John and I managed to squeeze in a few days in Chicago to attend KBIS, the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show. We had been invited by the fabulous folks at Silestone, the makers of kitchen countertops and quartz bathroom surfaces, to attend the show and use Twitter and Facebook to talk about the trends we spotted.

Naturally, John and I spotted and spotted and then spotted some more, and let’s just say that our Tweets were not necessarily G-rated. Would you expect anything else?

Here’s a decidedly more toned-down video that we did at KBIS in which we discuss five of our favorite products that we spotted on the floor.

Check us out.
