Wild West Market Travel Theme

Where’s My Backpack’s travel theme photo challenge is street markets and everyone is invited to participate and shop:  http://wheresmybackpack.com/2012/05/25/street-markets/

My travel theme is a wild west world of a market.  I took the photographs at an open air market with a wild west theme that is located in Illinois.

I knew I had arrived at the right place when I saw the giant rooster on a truck.  The market is huge, a few miles long, with a colorful assortment of things for sale.

Coyote Ugly or Quick Draw

Lots of colorful ceramics and clay art like the painted mask.


An assortment of dried chilies to choose from.

Bye from the Market.  Enjoy your Memorial Day.

  1. Yeeehaww! Those jeans are only for the very brave. I don’t know why I find those little lizards so adorable, but I do, I think maybe it’s their little mouths hanging open. Makes them look very thirsty. Very fun! xxx 🙂
