    This place is the king of mid century finds. Truly a gem in Chicago. There’s a lot of cool stuff here, however, bargains are hard to come by. Still it’s a great place to browse and marvel at these finds. Staff is friendly and it’s well maintained compared to other antique malls we have been to. It’s metered street parking on Broadway and close in on the side streets. On the plus side you are less than a block away from Ann Sather’s on Granville. Think cinnamon rolls to die for.

    This place has a lot of hard to find pieces. The staff is very helpful and all prices are negotiable...think American Pickers. That said, items are still pricey even after the negotiation. You better come prepared with your wallet.

    The atmosphere of Ravenswood is intimate and fun to navigate, with intimate nooks and crannies. Unfortunately, the quality of curation is slightly lacking. Older, less accomplished translations of world literature were present, as well as advanced reader's copies of books. Selling that in a bookstore is just – no. The organization of genres could be better. The literature section was predominately popular fiction, which was quite surprising. If you are looking for a serendipitous discovery, or something more serious, then you might be disappointed. The classics were well-stocked, though.

    Additionally, browsing takes exerted effort. I love bookstores with piles and stacks to navigate, but this was just too much. Moving 16 books to look at the next section in the alphabet became exhausting after a while.

    Went to 4 antique malls/stores in one day, and this was my favorite. Heavy on the 50s to 60s items. Most prices were reasonable. Not too crowded. Fun to go to.

    We were visiting Chicago, and were told about this antique store from our concierge. It was a beautiful spacious Parisian like gallery! It is a must see while you are in town!!! They will pamper you with a glass of wine, as you look around at the fine antiques and then at one of a kind architectural pieces!

    This is a very eclectic place for weddings and other events. You are surrounded by items that would be on an episode of American Pickers. The location is a very large 2 story warehouse in an upcoming neighborhood. Visit the store or book an event that is out of the ordinary!

    Chinatown Square is a two-story outdoor shopping mall located in Chicago's Chinatown neighborhood, a mile south of Chicago's Loop and north of Chinatown's main street, the Wentworth Avenue District.

Opened in 1993, Chinatown Square is bordered by Archer Avenue to the south, Princeton Avenue to the west, Wentworth Avenue to the east and China Place to the north. One of Chinatown's most significant landmarks, the Pin Tom Memorial Park, is located to the north of Chinatown Square on the banks of the South Branch of the Chicago River. In the heart of Chinatown Square is the Pan Asian Cultural Center and 12 beautiful, bronze zodiac figures. In addition, the "Chinese in America" mural is located here. It describes the history of Chinese immigrants in the United States as well as Chinese cultural beliefs. It contains 100,000 individually cut pieces of hand-painted glass from China made specifically for this mural.
