This shop is a must for architecture buffs, as well as anyone who just loves clever design. From kitchenware to kids' toys to Chicago architecture books to countless trinkets, if it looks good and functions well, this store is bound to have it. Look for an entire section devoted to one of Chicago's favorite architects, Frank Lloyd Wright.

I never have a problem finding the perfect gift for every occasion at the CAF Shop!

The CAF store has unique gifts for just about anyone--it's all about cool design!

It's a great place to find Chicago-influenced gifts for friends and family.

Looking for unusual gifts for every occasion and every age - CAF's shop is the place to go. When you are done shopping you can go on a tour of Chicago's incredible architecture. It's a two-fer!

If you're looking for a gift for anyone who loves Chicago, this is the spot. Obviously there are plenty of architecture-centric gifts, but there are also loads of other great gifts—books, art, home goods, etc. During the holidays they also sell great ornaments!
