One thing that was a high priority when opening the shop was the playlist. Music completely sets the tone. Not too stuffy. Slightly playful. Vintage yet trending. Basically everything I want the shop to be. Every time music is heard in the background when I share Stories on Instagram, I get soooooo many DMs. What song is that? Well, I gotcha cuz today I made you a mixtape of goodness. This comes in a 4 part series, so check back for more.

Well that was a bit of radio silence, huh? So sorry. I gotta tell you guys, that One Room Challenge really wiped me out. That and all last week my in-laws were visiting from Germany, oh and I was playing reindeer games last Sunday too! Let me tell you about it! Susan and William of House Of Brinson were shooting in town, so Nicole of Making It Lovely and I thought we’d entertain them a bit. Plus, we all wanted to meet face-to-face…finally!
First stop was Randolph Street Market. We found loads of goodies, stuffed our faces with homemade empanadas, and I might have been sipping on some champagne. Ya, that’s how we flea in Chicago. Beth from South Loop Loft (check out her new fancy website) met us at her new location where we gawked over her chandeliers, Chesterfield sofas, and Canary Lane’s incredible vintage rugs. And yes, there was more champagne, and everyone watched me snarf down my very first macaroon. Seriously, why have I never had a macaroon before? I’ve been missing out on life. After that Kodak moment, it was on to The Savoy Flea. It was a vintastic day had by all.
