If there's always one thing we love about traveling, it's hotel gift shops and shopping in hotels. Not only do we appreciate the kitschy flower shop at The Drake Hotel but we can also get down with fun-utilitarian shops like at The Blackstone Hotel. Our faves though are on-trend and design shops like what's happening at The Ace in the Flat Iron in New York, SLS in Beverly Hills or the Mondrian on South Beach.
Now Chicago's got its own design friendly hotel with a little design-friendly shop within. Haberdash at theWit, a new pop-up shop located in the lobby of hotel. The store has got a fresh collection of hard to find footwear, apothecary, and accessory brands including Sperry, Pendleton, Quoddy, Reigning Champ, Malin + Goetz, Filson, and Ashland Leather.
