The keyword for this wonderful shop in Chicago is NOSTALGIA. When I first had the pleasure to visit, I was stunned by the creativity of its owner and how she came to be.
The minute I walked through the door I knew I was on to something very special. There wasn't a corner in this shop that did not beckon. It was filled with all of the imaginable nostalgic elements that could ever be gathered. Someone had really hit a specialized niche that I had never seen....................ever! Plaids were everywhere and vintage fabrics that had once been curtains were now pillows. Vintage glasses on silver trays, baskets filled with unpolished silver and a rifle box loaded with aluminum serving pieces from the 50's.
One of a pair of reupholstered vintage chairs coordinated with black linen.
A successful hunting trip
Does anyone need a thermos?
Vintage leather cowboy boots
Skates, blankets and a thermos or two more
One of Julie's front windows
Before plastic water bottles were delivered
*Just a little note to consider....after attending a forcasting event
for color and patterns for 2012, it was noted that toward the
end of this year, plaids will be making a come back in
the world of design as will small prints.
