Chicago Shops: Art Effects

Armitage Street contains some of the most adorable stores in Chicago, nestled in the heart of Lincoln Park and easily accessible from the "El" lines. My stop to and from work happens to be Armitage, right off of the purple line, and Art Effects is the first store window I pass by {and usually stop in}. They occupy two enormous store fronts filled with clothing, accessories, gifts and home accessories, it is all very enticing and usually calls me in every single time.

Yesterday I discovered numerous gifts that I think would be perfect for anyone on your list! Here we go...

Salt & Pepper shakers make the cutest little hostess gift. I especially love these by Michael Aram.
Find them here and here.
These Tree of Life candle holders would look fabulous on my table.

And who doesn't love a good wine stop? Especially from this gentlemen.

I really dig bookcases, and these would help someone create their own.

Marble Chicago coasters to represent our beautious city.

A personal gift to warm you up on these chilly winter days!

And this is probably weird, but I love mercury glass and I think a good bookcase would like this too.

Happy Shopping!
