A chocolate lover's haven. Fudge, chocolate, white chocolate...all freshly made before you. Love this family owned place.
A staple of Chicago for decades, this used record shop is a must visit, even if you're just browsing. Used or new, this place is a legend.
Fun store filled w/ stationary, toys, kitchen and trinkets. From Doctor Who, things everyone should have in their kitchens and amazing cards to send to friends, Hazel is a great store to pop in and leave with a bag full of goodies.
Great custom design tshirt place. Local, friendly and can do it in 24 hrs. They can also print on what whatever shirt you bring in too.
One of my favorite stores to get friends gifts. A fun shop with unique gifts for everyone. Women, looking for a new wallet, they have a Chicago flag wallet that will get people asking.
I WANT ALL THE POSTERS HERE! The stationary & cards are so unique & fun. They also do framing too.
This outdoors shop reminds me of when I was in Queenstown, NZ. Knowledgeable staff that is more concerned about helping you then selling.
My favorite furniture store in Chicago. If you see something you like, don't think about it or come back later because it will be sold quickly. From bed frames, dressers, bookcases, tables and chairs, this is the place to get something unique and gorgeous to accent your place.
The Threadless store carries their current 2 weeks of t-shirts. But upstairs they also have a lot of clearance stuff you wouldn't expect. Bring in the tote bag to get a discount. :)
Ridiculously cute shop filled with unique items for the little ones (or someone who likes to relive their childhood).
This store caught me by surprise. Goods for the home for the women, kids and men found all over the store. Everything beautifully laid out and so worth a visit.
Fantastic local shop filled with Chicago centric (among others) art and prints. They support local artists and is filled with a great selection.
Great little antique and home decor shop. Check out the back room, they have a lot of beautiful china and kitchenware.
Amazing vintage shop that makes you wish had all the money in the world to buy their amazing items. From cameras, glassware, furniture and everything in between, definitely a store you want to check out, buy & perhaps keep your wallet at home.
Fun and really stylish hats that would make anyone dapper.
Need to get a fix? Whether it's coffee or your bike this is a great place. Hang out, get a cup of coffee while they fix a flat.
This is a man's shop. Want to class up? This is where you go for shaving, ties, shirts and everything to better your man wardrobe.
Great little import shops filled with lovely British & Irish goods. Can't go to England or miss having those wine gums? This store has all the goodies you expect from there. Plus, the owners have accents. ;)
GREAT & FUN local site that now has a store front. Always seen them at street fests. Great t-shirts, mugs and CTA oriented merchandise. Not to mention cool Chicago gear. They have everything for the true Chicagoan.
