Andersonville is a really great neighborhood in north Chicago. We spent an afternoon exploring last weekend and found the cutest shops. Brimfield is my new love. I want my entire house to feel like the inside of their store. They re-upholster furniture and pillows in vintage plaid felt and wool blankets. It gives the furniture a masculine, cozy and casual feel. I am now in the market for more plaid wool blankets to make a few pillows for our bed and to re-upholster our ottoman. (I wish I had known about my new love before I went to the Vintage Market, I would have bought more blankets!)
**P.S. Also check out Scout, right next door to Brimfield.
