When Wicker Park does vintage, the neighborhood doesn't hold back. Store B Vintage, one of the stores lining Milwaukee Avenue, is no exception: If you're in the market for pieces that look truly retro, you'll have a hard time leaving this store empty handed. Bold colors and kitschy prints are the norm at Store B, where you'll find everything from clothing to home goods from the 30's through 70's.
The prices at this store aren't low, but customers should see the goods for what they are: Rare, high-quality pieces that hold up over time. If you cant get to Wicker Park (or don't live in Chicago) you still have the option to browse through some of the store's merchandise. They sell goods on their Ebay site as well.
Unlike some stores in the area, Store B does not accept consignment pieces (though the store does sell pieces that have been consigned.) This is a place for vintage lovers to browse and buy pieces.
