Lincoln Park Shops
1013 W. Webster Ave., Lincoln Park
After years of putting her MBA to good use as an ad exec, Chandra Greer left it all behind for more creative pastures and never looked back. Greer is the kind of stationery-slash-gift shop you can pop into in a hurry and emerge with the perfect present (say, a Xenia Taler trivet or Lucia candle) or time permitting, pass an afternoon perusing the artfully cluttered displays. All the usual suspects—Rifle Paper Co., Delfonics, Ferme a Papier—are well represented, as are less-known indie makers like Antiquaria and Tiselle. Don’t miss the house line of miniature just-because cards, aptly called Civilettes.
1885 N. Clybourn Ave., Lincoln Park
This beloved vintage furniture/décor/botany mecca was a major contributor to making the Chicago goop Pop the experience it was. Even if you’re not in the market for say, a crushed velvet fainting sofa or crystal chandelier, perusing the bright space is an inspiring experience. Can’t do in-person? The online shop is the next best thing.
Jayson Home Chicago
1885 N. Clybourn Ave., Chicago
This beloved vintage furniture/décor/botany mecca was a major contributor to making the Chicago goop Pop the experience it was. Somewhat rare, Jayson Home designs floral arrangements that are as exceptional as their furnishings. Perusing the shop's bright space is always an inspiring experience, but you can also order flowers and plants from their online store for delivery in the Chicago area.
