I just love to shop for bargains and the Buyers Flea Market certainly has plenty of it. Its an indoor flea market and has an admission fee of fifty cents which, I think, is cheap considering all the bargains youll find. They have a large selection of items being sold like stereos, television sets, jewelry, clothing, cosmetics. They also have a great selection of ethnic foods available to try while you shop.
I was so delighted when I first discovered Boyajians Bazaar located in the Hyde Park neighborhood. It is a small shop that sells novelties and knick knacks from all over the world. The have tons of different items like Austrian crystal, candleholders, African masks, jewelry boxes and many more. I like to come here to find unique gifts for friends, relatives and, especially myself.
Krista K is one of my favorite boutiques selling womens clothing and accessories. Its located in the Lakeview neighborhood and sells very cute designer clohing. They carry clothing from designers like Rebecca Taylor, Catherine Malandrino, Miguelina, Petit Bateau. They even carry very stylish maternity wear which are difficult to find at most malls stores.
I have been going to Roque Salon for a long time now to have my hair cut and colored. I wouldnt go anywhere else. The staff is friendly and talented. I have always been very happy with the superior customer service and quality hairstyles that I have received. The salon is also such a pleasant place to be in too with an aquarium, fireplace and fresh flowers.
PROS: Friendly and talented staff, comfy environment
I sometimes shop at Fertile Gardens for plants for my garden. They have a very nice selection of plants available. Their plants always look healthy. They staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about the plants that they carry. Although their prices tend to be more expensive than other garden centers, I have found some good deals whenever they have their sales events.
La Salle Flower Shop is so convenient to get to for me since its so close to where I live. I always go to this florist shop for a fresh bouquet of flowers for my home since they always have such a nice selection in their store. The flowers are always fresh every day and the staff is so friendly and courteous.
I have ordered a balloon bouquet from Balloonz once as a gift to my best friend on the arrival of her first baby. The staff is very friendly to deal with and they are able to make many suggestions as to the type of bouquets that they can create depending on your budget. Their delivery is also prompt.
Children In Paradise is such a great bookstore for kids. They carry a wonderful selection of books and gift items. The store is definitely geared toward kids in mind since the employees are a great resource to what kind of book a child of a certain age would be interested in reading. The staff is very knowledgeable and very friendly.
The Peace Museum is a very good museum to visit. It provides an educational look into the impact of war and peace through the arts. They have exhibits on domestic violence, wars, prisons, human rights. The museum is located in a building that looks like a church with a gold dome in the center of the building. Its a interesting and eye-opening museum.
The Sears Tower Skydeck is one of the destinations we take our out of town visitors to see so they can experience the tallest building in the city. The building has 110 floors and if you are afraid of heights, then I would recommend you stay away. Their elevators have televisions so you can pass the time while you wait to arrive on the top floor. The views are amazing.
