Now that the parade has passed through the neighborhood, the fair in Grant Park is going full speed. There were 54 vendors this morning - and then the ice cream truck showed up, so now there's 55, making it the biggest fair in the 11 year history of the fair and parade.
There are lots of deals to be found on Perry, too: the Buddhist Temple is having a huge yard sale with clothes and kitchen gear. Down the street, The Windfall is having a bag sale: all the second hand clothing you can fit in a grocery bag for $5. The new shop in the little white house next to Lorien's - Veda Lux - is celebrating its grand opening today, featuring lots of handmade jewelry and vintage clothing.
