And now the latest from Curbed's shopping blog, Racked Chicago...
WICKER PARK— You can now get a weekly dose of, um, Dose. Starting on Sunday, the market that specializes in fashion, food, and design will take place every week through December 15. And, it has a new home: the shopping bonanza will now set up its stalls at 1st Ward at Chop Shop, the brand-new event space in Wicker Park.
COLD COAST— On Friday night, Luxaby Baby & Child celebrated the opening of its Oak Street store with an Alice in Wonderland-themed fete. The twee boutique is filled with celebrity-approved baby goods, including the Angel Dear blankets J.Lo allegedly swore by for the twins. On that note, we asked guests: If you had to invent a crazy celerity baby name, what would it be?
PILSEN—Market Supply Co. is now open in Pilsen. The vintage boutique stocks clothing for men and women. A handmade jewelry line called Clyde's Rebirth features designs made out of vintage and reclaimed goods, and on Fridays and Saturdays designer Merl Kinzie crafts custom baubles for guests as they shop. Also: there's a barber shop in back.
