I love my friends at Humboldt House! Friendliest artists trade work for space at this amazing neighborhood treasure. It's a must place to take visitors from out of town to take home a Chicago made trinket whether it be a $5 Laura Berger stationary print or a $50 pair of Leah Ball's ever so famous "Feminist As Fuck" hoop earrings. Truly an inspiration each time you step into this little treasure chest of a shop.

When I walk into Humboldt House, I know that in a perfect world this is what my apartment looks like. This is not a perfect world and my apartment doesn't come close, but every time I visit I get the tiniest bit closer.

Absolutely love this shop! So many great items from amazing jewelry by local artist like Lindsay Lewis & Cities In Dust, to stellar house decor & furniture. Every time I visit I'm in danger of buying way too much. If you're looking for that unique standout piece to decorate your home, you'll definitely find it at Humboldt House.


I am obsessed with this store! The second I walked in I wanted to decorate my apartment with everything in it. The store has the perfect mix of moroccan inspired rugs, modern furniture,quirky and fun ceramics and more. Its a great place to find christmas gifts as well!
