One afternoon the boy and I were on a walk and stumbled across Brimfield in Chicago's Andersonville neighborhood. I was blown away with the style and finds at this adorable antique and home furnishing store. The space is chock full of great plaids, hand made afghans and just a really well edited collection of things anyone would be happy to have in their home.
I walked away with a Kentucky Derby glass from 1973, the year Secretariat won the title. This store is amazing. The prices are great, and it's firmly on my list of things that make Chicago great.
