Do you like your goods handmade? If the answer is yes, there’s a new shop called Union Handmade (3860 N. Lincoln Ave.) that you must check out.

Owner Leigh Deleanardo (you might remember her first shop, Made To Fit, which was on Clybourn until 1998) has filled the store with classic, unique designs made by hand in small batches.

In fact, the tagline of the store is “Quality Goods,” and that’s exactly what you’ll find. It will be tough to choose your favorite at this simple, well-appointed shop, which carries everything from Deleanardo’s own clothing collection to jewelry, hats, cards, body products, and textiles, including this fresh bedding collection from Auntie Oti.
