The best shops in Rogers Park

Flatts & Sharpe
  • Shopping
  • Music and entertainment
  • Rogers Park
  • price 3 of 4
Need a sax or sheet music, quick? The Rogers Park shop remains one of a handful of places to pick up traditional (read: the stuff you hated to learn in high school band but now wish you'd stuck with) instruments and sheet music. Plus you can enroll in a music lesson or two and really drive your neighbors nuts.

Funk Trunk Records
  • Shopping
  • Rogers Park
  • price 1 of 4
This small vinyl shop gives Rogers Park the record store it has so long deserved. The selection of groove-heavy music—funk, soul, house, rock on 12" and 45—feels like digging through a good DJ's personal stash, and that's essentially what it is. The wax, sorted in just a few bins, is used and cheap and all worth digging through. It's a place for getting a collection started rather than deep digs.
Lost Eras Costume and Prop
  • Shopping
  • Costume shops
  • Rogers Park
  • price 2 of 4
Since 1969, this costume shop has been providing dress-up apparel that runs the gamut from prehistorical to the roaring '20s to modern movie characters. If you're looking simply to add some flair to your own costume, makeup, animal noses, masks and wigs can help with that. There's also a great kids selection, as well as tons of props. Not on a costume search? The shop stocks vintage clothing, accessories, and jewelry, too.
