Bleeker Street

Refined rustic is the vibe at this antique shop that culls goods from all around the globe and a variety of decades. Huge antlers are strewn throughout the store alongside cool, chunky English white ironstone pieces, white wrought-iron chairs, large wooden troughs, and rough-hewn wood tables.

The Painted Lady

This Bucktown shop is filled with bright, glowing furniture that owner Beth Brace has picked up at Midwest flea markets and given a new life with fresh coats of shiny white paint. The look is shabby chic, with pretty white linens, vintage crystal-laden lamps and chandeliers, and small accessories.

You'll find blankets, chairs, pillows, and even a coffee thermos covered in the iconic print, as well as chairs reupholstered with charming vintage wool patterns.
