On New Year’s Eve we went on a little field trip to Chicago. After hitting The Boring Store, we headed up Milwaukee Ave. to explore all the cool stores we saw as we were driving in. It was a frigid day, so we only managed to visit a few.
Rudy’s Roundup was so inviting with it’s baby blue lettering. Inside was a collection of treasures. All the vintage clothing was 50% off. I wanted to buy so many pieces, but I ended up sticking to the hats! This year our church services are in the afternoon, which means I have a few hours in the morning to take the kids to the Easter Parade. I am pretty excited.
These hats have so much potential for fun pieces, I am really excited that I scored them at such a low price. I also love getting something like this as a souvenir, because I will always remember that frigid day in Chicago when I found those hats at Rudy’s Roundup.
Transit Tees was cool. I wish I had bought this shirt with the embroidered train on it. We also visited Lomography. I heard the gal that worked there talking to someone about shooting with film and how it makes her more thoughtful about what she is going to snap a photo of . I REALLY need a dose of that. I take TOO MANY photos.
I WANTED to visit Fluevog and Free People and all the vintage resale shops on Milwaukee, but it was too bitter out and we had to head home. Next time.
