Vintage Shopping in Chicago

Whether it's Mad Men fever, a recession-fueled interest in secondhand duds or the fact that everything just looked cooler way back when, vintage is hotter than ever. Lucky for us antique lovers, vintage stores tend to cluster together, allowing you to easily hunt for old-school clothes and furniture. We've highlighted our six favorite districts, each one filled with aged oddities from the 1900s to the 1990s. (Yes, the '90s are vintage. You're that old.)
