We love to browse a store that somehow manages to pack every square inch with random, fabulous things we never knew we wanted--and that’s the genius of Madison Hall at the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel. The just-opened boutique stocks a curated collection of accessories, sundries and apothecary items, and it’s divided in half by gender: goods for ladies on the West side and finds for gents on the East. Here are seven must-haves we’d buy on our dream shopping spree there.

71 E. Madison St.; 312-683-9586 or madisonhallchicago.com
