Where To Do Your Holiday Shopping
Chicago’s best boutiques branch out
Are you making your list and checking it twice at the Walmart in Lakeview?
We didn’t think so. When it comes to holiday gifting, we’re on board with the shop local movement.
This year, a few of our favorites are even branching out of their neighborhoods to try seasonal pop-ups in new locations. Here’s where you can check them out:
The North Center boutique is selling its amazingly giftable Midwestern-themed prints, plus cards, T-shirts, kitchen accessories and more at a new South Side satellite. Through December 23, 1506 E. 53rd St.
Jayson Home This fabulous Lincoln Park furniture and home accessories mecca is making a statement in an all-glass cube pop-up in the center courtyard at the Old Orchard mall in Skokie. Everything in the shop screams “wrap me up,” from cool photo frames to coffee-table books for design junkies. Through December 31, 4905 Old Orchard Center
Amy’s Candy Bar Ravenswood’s most charming sweets shop is in it for the long haul with a six-month outpost in Hyde Park.
