Local Finds, Local Gems, Shopping, Shopping Events

Today, I’m partnering with Marc Jacobs and Glam to share with you a few “hot spots” in Chicago. No, we’re not talking about places where you can come up on some free wifi. This is all about the spots that provide the best of what Chicago has to offer.
Narrowing it down to four proved to be quite difficult, but I’m never one to back down from a challenge. With that being said, here are four destinations that should be on everyone’s “to-do” list, locals and tourists alike.
Luxury Garage Sale
1658 N. Wells St
I hate to use the term “one stop shop”, but there really is no better way to describe Luxury Garage Sale. High-end consignment, discount designer goods, and vintage accessories are all here for the picking. What used to be an eBay-only store is now one of the most immaculate shopping destinations in the city. I’ve spent many of days perusing the racks, which always ends with me trying to figure out what I can consign to help pay for the slew of things I want in the store. It’s a revolving door of fashion retail, and a well-organized one at that. Shop owners Brielle Buchberg and Lindsay Segal have a keen eye for statement pieces, which means the store is filled with the stuff ideal wardrobes are made of.
Not yet sold on how great this store is? Just follow their Instagram account. It will ultimately result in you jumping out of your pajamas one morning to rush down there and grab whatever it is before it’s gone (one of my readers actually did that recently for a Celine Nano crossbody bag). You’ve been warned.
