Calling all Chicagoans and those who pop into the Midwest was time to time: Chicago has some amazing vintage shops that are worth a shout-out!
1. Belmont Army: (Lakeview) This building is packed with five floors of apparel and goodies. There’s a skate shop, apparel, shoes, army surplus, and a vintage & resale floor. For all you vintage lovers, the top floor with the vintage stuff is probably where you want to head to.
2. Knee Deep Vintage: (Pilsen) This is an adorable little shop in the colorful neighborhood of Pilsen. Perhaps a little too stuffed with apparel, but the teal and wood paneled walls make up for this in charm. Pictured below.
3. Clothes Optional: (Lakeview) At Clothes Optional, you can find tons of awesome vintage apparel from the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s. As one Yelper says, it is “well edited” meaning that the clothing has gone through a good selection process.
