Cool Places to Shop in Chicago

18 Oct

When you’re vacationing is it not inevitable to come home with a lot heavier of a suitcase than when you started?  Well, here are some tips on where you can go to fill your luggage with cool stuff.

Calling all music collectors, vinyl enthusiasts, movie lovers, and cd buyers.  Reckless Records is the place to browse and buy new & used music and movies.  This is a place where hidden gems are often discovered, no matter what genre you’re into.  Besides, it’s very close to our hostel

Threadless is a cool place with a constantly changing lineup of artist designed graphic tees.  These awesome and sometimes strange tee shirts make great souvenirs, and this place has become quite a hot spot for our guests.  It also helps that prices are reasonably marked in the $10-12 range.   This place is just a quick walk up to Broadway.

Clothes Optional is a good stop on the vintage shop agenda.  This place may be small, but there are always great retro gear to rummage through.  Take a stroll a little north on Clark St. and drop in.

Check out Vintage Underground in Wicker Park.  This place carries a ton of vintage jewelry, home furnishings, knick-knacks, and other old stuff.  The prices can be hefty, but this place is worth checking out….plus, there’s a lot to do in the neighborhood.
