Vintage furniture shoppers might recognize Julie Fernstrom from her former Portage Park shop, English Cottage, or the various Chicagoland antique markets she traveled to every weekend. These days she’s staying in one spot: Andersonville. Named after her favorite plaid, the store is “Ralph Lauren meets a Paris flea market,” she says. The shop is stocked with plenty of antique, vintage, repurposed and found objects for every budget—and since the store is named after a checkered pattern, the space wouldn’t be complete without plenty of plaid–blankets, tin boxes and more. The shop also offers reupholstering services, so you can get a custom slice of Brimfield that is truly unique.
