Finding the perfect way to stash keys, notebooks, and whatever else you tote around (we won't ask) isn't always easy. Some like to saunter through town with a candy-colored Kate Spade, while others prefer to stow their goods in a recycled, fair-trade lunch bag. Between them, our roundup of Chicago stores carry both of those—and clutches made from gold-foil python skin, of course. As always, our map is arranged in a handy north-to-south format, ready for you to shop with ease. Now, carry on.
