Not only is this one of the best flea markets in Illinois but it will also be featuring one of my favorite TV characters as a child, Bozo The Clown.

Illinois Loves Bozo The Clown

When I was growing up, every kid watched and loved "The Bozo Show," of course, starring Bozo The Clown. It was so popular that fans had to wait years to get tickets to be part of the live studio audience. My mom started sending in ticket requests when she was pregnant with me. The first time I went to the show, I was eight years old. That's quite the waiting list. I was lucky enough to go a handful of times.

Bozo was definitely the most popular kids show in Illinois, especially in the Chicago area. There were tons of Bozo toys and merchandise released back in those days. I remember having a Bozo doll. I wish I still had some of that stuff today because I bet it's worth a lot of money.
