Shop in the ‘hood

Threadless (3011 N. Broadway). A grassroots company I can get behind. Plus I will always love the store that gave me the T-shirt that illustrates The Cure’s “Friday I’m in Love.”

Reckless Records (3126 N. Broadway). Deep personal secret time: in 2007, I bought a used set of “The Hills” DVDs from this store and the clerks didn’t outright laugh at me. I never forgot that.

This article has 2 other Chicago locations (Show)

Elliott Consignment (3015 N. Broadway). Pretty things at itty-bitty prices.

Unabridged Bookstore (3251 N. Broadway). So cozy and crammed with treasures, it glorifies the nerdy bibliophile in me.
