If you are searching to find somewhere to go before summer ends, consider taking a small road trip north to Chicago. For those who enjoy vintage splurging, Comfort Me is the perfect boutique for you. Comfort Me, a Chicago-based boutique with two locations, one in Lincoln Park and the other in Hyde Park, is everything a girl could ask for when it comes to vintage finds. Not only does the store carry vintage pieces, but the store's interior decor, which often changes from time to time, comes from rummage sales and auctions.
Comfort Me is owned by a mother-daughter trio, who happen to be the kindest and warmest women on the planet. The three women not only select their designers for new pieces, but the three women also visit flea markets and auctions, hoping to find hidden gems to add to their store's merchandise.
There are always new additions to the vintage merchandise selection - ranging from necklaces, rings, and scarves, all the way to buttons, picture frames, pocket watches, and "vintage creations." Some memorable items showcased at Comfort Me include a silk scarf that looked like vintage Hermes (think Bride de Cour); a yellow gold, refurbished pocket watch with a thick, yellow gold beaded chain; and last but not least, a navy blue and cream polka dot broach that doubles as a fascinator made from a used necktie - a perfect example of a "vintage creation!"
After a trip to this boutique, it is guaranteed that one will rarely walk out empty-handed. Remember, the best part of buying these unique pieces is that they are likely one-of-a-kind. No one else will be rocking the same thing! It truly is a treat to visit a boutique like this - where great service, great pieces, and affordable prices are under not one but two roofs.
