Chicago's 38 best vintage shops each have a distinct personality. One Wicker Park shop carries dainty bridal dresses dating back to the nineteenth century; a West Town store has Spice Girls mini purses. There are Mad Men-style bar carts at some stores, and Parisian jewelry from the 1940s at others. But, as we rounded up these shops (some mobile, some brick-and-mortar), we noticed a common theme: so very many of these spots have shop dogs, and an overwhelming majority of them are dog-friendly. So if you like vintage finds, shopping with your pooch, or a little bit of both, this is the guide for you. As usual, the stores are arranged in a loose north-to-south order and represent our favorites in the market.
