MEET OUR VENDORS! The People of Wolff's Flea Market

Love at First Vend

By Guest Blogger Candice Lee Conner

You can find anything at the Flea. And as Carol and Rich found out, you can also find true love. 

Back on Memorial Day 2006, Carol was selling during her first year at Wolff's Flea Market, Rosemont. Rich, a vendor of 15 years, started talking to Carol to find out her "selling secrets". According to Carol, she was doing great and selling a ton of items. Rich...not so much. From this predicament, a romance quickly flourished! 

"He would leave a rose on the left side of my van every (sale) day," Says Carol.

And they've been together ever since.

Today, Rich and Carol still sell at Wolff's Flea Market...and still in separate spaces. 
Rich says it's so that Carol won't shop and leave Rich behind with all her merchandise, but I think it's because this lovely couple likes to compete with each other.
