****For Immediate Review and Release. Please share. July 3rd, 2016.**** While Celebrating your 49th Anniversary show, we had an unfortunate circumstance caused by a brief lapse of judgement in what one vendor chose to display in his booth. It impacted and offended many. It was dealt with on the spot, as soon as it was recognized. This was not a dealer making a political statement. It was a dealer selling war memorabilia who, when questioned, recognized the potential hurt it would cause. He was quickly receptive to the education and ensured it was no longer on display. We have regretfully had to deal with situations in the past, and find that when something is discovered that offends, is illegal, or poor in taste, we are able to redirect and rectify any wrongs. If this does not occur, most customers will give us a chance to respond and remedy the situation by reporting it to our main office, one of our gates, or to an employee so that we can do the right thing immediately. As a gay male, fortunate to be part of a supportive and diverse "flea market" family, I am very sensitive to injustice and hate on all levels. I live my life by a quote from Elie Wiesel, the Auschwitz survivor and Nobel Laureate, who died this past week. He states, "The opposite of love is not hate, it is indifference." I would argue this is demonstrated by inaction and standing by as a passive observer as wrong occurs. Regretfully, things occur that we cannot control. We cannot control what we do not know, so please inform us so that we can respond by recognizing, intervening and solve any issue. Moving forward, we will be expanding our policy and practice of respectfulness and tolerance, and we will work to keep the Kane County Flea Market the best in the midwest or anywhere. Together we can make this happen. If you already frequent the flea market, we thank you for the last 49 years and look forward to growing in the next 50 years with you. If you have not been to our show, we would like you to come and experience the great, diverse group of people that make up our dealers and customers. If would like you to stop by the office at our next show, please do. I would like to chat in person. My sincerest apologies, Benjamin Robinson On behalf of the Robinson Family and KCF Market.
ATTN dealers: Please note- We have decided to open our gates on Saturday morning for set up one hour earlier. The gate will now open at 8AM please pass this on to friends
We were just named as one of the 10 Best Flea Markets in the World by Jet Setter Magazine.
We are ranked with markets in Oslo, Paris and London. This is something all the buyers and sellers always knew to be true... Now so does the rest of the world. Thanks for the ranking Jet Setter.
Remember you can always fly into O'Hare ( ORD) or via private plane to Dupage Airport and stay at Pheasant Run Resort next door to the Airport. We will help you load the plane.
