WDMS is Sally Schwartz, the Midwest’s Leading Antique Show Queen and Producer of Chicago’s most successful antiquing events for a 10th season in 2013: Randolph Street Market Festival, Chicago Antique Market, Modern Vintage Chicago are some of her progressively vintage brands. Over 500,000 customers have shopped her events in search of vintage treasures. Through her event company, “Paint Me a Party/Image Pilots”, she began producing vintage markets to avoid having to schlep out of the city for themed period decor. (We said she was a Queen-- Who else starts their own show just to shop closer to home?) She's on the mommy track now but lost her first and only serious job out of college for wearing stockings with seams up the back. On that note, she collects vices including cigarette lighters, cocktail swizzle sticks and playing card sets. Sally also started a line of couture pet products called “Jet Set Pet” and loves to pick up strays… animals, of course. Sally lives with her teen age daughter & multiple pets in Hyde Park, Chicago. Her dreams involve a small beach shack in Hawaii.
OH, and Sally was the first antique show promoter in known gentile society to show vintage pornos and live nude models in the Salon des Arts Erotiques -- a proud first for this age old industry.
Of special ironic and vintage note from Sally: "Danny lives in the building my mother grew up in and it may be the ghosts of my grandparents stalking Danny and making sure all his trash ends up properly disposed of .... sorry to end a sentence with a preposition (see Manners Bitch) but the big D can be a hot mess on the outer drive after he's unpacked his pickings."
