Finding Inspiration for the Fall & Winter Holidays

Maxwell Street Flea Market

in.spi.ra.tion n. any stimulus to creative thought or action; an inspired idea, action, etc. 

“You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.” 

The Maxwell Street Days flea market in Cedarburg, Wisconsin - like most other flea markets or craft fairs - is a magical mix of people, history, design, community and creativity. Just approaching the entrance gate is enough to get the gears turning. 

Once inside, the patrons travel in groups of one, two or five...all on a hunt for 
personal treasure. 

Inspiring displays of old and new.


This crowd of faces catches the eye.

The rusty chair and lantern work their magic!

Yup, you're in Wisconsin!

The quilt piece in frame proves everything looks significant under glass!

Let the games begin!
