Chicago Shop For Someone Who Has Everything

Virtu is a shop in the heart of Bucktown stocked full of goods all “made by someone, not by something.”

I especially love these Heart Measuring Spoons by Behive.  They are hand cast in lead free pewter on a twisted copper ring.

Virtu is located at 2034 N Damen Avenue

They have a pretty fab online shop as well.  www.virtuchicago.com

Tablevogue – The Gift of Easy Entertaining

I got a chance to test out the Tablevogue recently on my “prep gift table” that I set up in my office.

It changed the whole feel of my office.  My table went from a 6 foot white folding table with a black piece of fabric covering the top to a full, clean, elegant table that completely covers the bags and boxes I had stuffed underneath.

While I know most people don’t have “prep gift tables” – it is a perfect product for anyone who likes to entertain and keep things tidy.  You can even get creative for parties and use paint to spice up the table.

4 Seasons Chicago Print

This 4 Seasons in Chicago print caught my eye at the Renegrade Craft Fair in Wicker Park a few weeks ago.

I love everything about it.  It is four separate prints so you can frame them separately or all together.

Even better, it’s a local chicago artist, Ryan Kapp.

It’s the perfect gift for someone moving into a new chicago home!

$140 for all four

Chicago Pillow from a Chicago Shop

This Chicago themed pillow will definitely liven up anyone’s average old couch.

You can find this hand embroidered gift at a shop in Northbrook Court Mall called Royal Appointments.

They are pretty much a one stop shop for gifts of all sorts – great place to head if you’re stuck last minute without a gift.  If you have a little more time, they have lots of great items you can personalize as well.
