Whoa ladies! Throw down your tea cups and run over to Crate and Barrel on North Avenue at Clybourn because things are about to get ultra springy up in this Lincoln Park joint. We just got word that one of Marimekko's shops within a shop will be making its Chicago debut on May 5th. This is the second 'shop in shop' in the U.S. after the Crate and Barrel SoHo. Take our word for it, you better get in line days in advance because demand is high for the products at this 'shop in shop' which will carry exclusive items that won't even be available online. The selection includes bead spreads, bags, pillows, bolts of fabric, jackets, books, side tables, and best of all, tea cups. [Racked Inbox]
