Needle in a Haystack

Since opening last July in Lake View, the vintage boutique Haystack (2934 N. Broadway; 773-549-1225, haystackvintage.com) has augmented its original stash of antique objects and clothing with a mix of fun items by local designers, such as graphic T-shirts by Isotope (two for $30) and adorable stitched artwork by Jac Jemc from $40. The owner, Phil Tadros, acquired his original stash of goods from a pair of 70 something-year-old twins whom he befriended during a stint working at a mobile-phone store. You’ll also find a quirky cache of Schwinn bikes with banana seats, retro chairs, old books, glassware, and even jewelry. It’s a one stop shop for all your vintage needs, and expect to spend a good chunk of time trolling through this adorable Haystack.
