Recently opened mother-daughter owned Hardscrabble gift shop in Bridgeport at 3333 S Halsted celebrates this week. Shop nostalgic and sentimental gifts for all occasions, alongside many handmade, fair-wage and Chicago-centric gifts. For example, this chandelier made of Barbie Dolls (click to enlarge). Stop by the shop on Saturday, November 10 from 10-6 for refreshments and to knock off names on your holiday shopping list. [Racked Inbox]
