Most men love to shop in stores where they can get in and out fast. They want a place where the selection is plentiful and the prices are right.
Gus Isacson, owner of Shirts on Sheffield, 3021 N. Sheffield, recognized this in 1995 and started offering this ideal combination to men in the Lake View area.
His 500-square-foot store stocks enough sportshirts, trousers and furnishings to keep a well-dressed man looking sharp.

But his specialty is the wide array of shirts by Wilke-Rodriguez, Michael Brandon and Ted Baker he showcases, neatly stacked on shelves and hung on racks. He operates under the philosophy most men own five shirts for every pair of trousers.

Hoosin Lampworks
Hoosin Lampworks Visit
1121 W. Belmont
Chicago 60657

This is a treasure chest. A treasure chest of unique gifts.
Basically, this guy is a true artisan. His works are incredible, and have been comissioned by some of the biggest names in Chicago. (Art Institute, etc). He makes beautiful stained glass/shell lamps.
But, these ain’t the shell lamps yo gramma has on her nighstand.
They are truly beautiful, like art that lights up. I bought one for my mother for Christmas and she absolutely loved it. It’s a very unique style, but classic and fits well with most decor.
Now, its not cheap (i bought the smallest lamp he makes for about $75), but it is reasonable for the obvious amounts of time he puts into his work. They come with a warantee, light bulbs (special, to not burn the glass) and he packages them very well to avoid breakage. He’s super friendly and has been in the neighborhood for eternity...
He keeps strange hours, so call first...definitely worth a stop in, even just to browse.

Eclecticity Visit
3162 N. Clark
Chicago 60657

This is the place for finding that one-of-kind greeting card, stationery, cutesy knick-knack shop. The place is arranged like a little girl’s dream bedroom with dolls and little rocking chairs strewn about. The prices are a bit steep, but you pay for the variety of merchandise.

Intaglia Visit
2831 N. Clark
Chicago 60657

What a great little furniture store--all the products are appealingly arranged, with enough space to walk around, try things out, etc. While there weren’t a lot of sales items, there was quite a bit of choice when it came to fabrics for the 2 chairs we picked out. The sales staff was helpful--offering suggestions and knowing when to leave us alone while we made our decisions.

Beansprout Visit

Really cute baby clothes and accessories. The salesperson was so helpful. I don’t have kids myself, so I had a lot of questions. I didn’t even notice that the store had been closed for 15 minutes when she was checking me out.

Chicago Music Exchange
Chicago Music Exchange Visit
3316 N. Lincoln Ave
Chicago 60657

The Chicago Music Exchange sells guitars, and if you’re living the life of the bluesman, with no money in your pockets and a traveling jones, they will buy your gear so you will have some cash to go down to Blues Fest. You can feel guitars older than you in your own two hands, and be overwhelmed by the sheer sprawl of instruments. They’re an authorized Fender and Gibson dealer and offer a full service Fender Custom Shop. They also boast an amazing selection of vintage equipment. The stock turns over relatively quickly, so each foray offers the potential to unearth a treasure.
Out-of-towners who like to get down and dirty can find the gear their idols use, and for even the curious folks without a penny to spare, looking to pluck out "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl" on a handful of amazing guitars, should make the voyage to Lakeview for a peek at this venerable establishment. Cost depends on how much guitar you’re looking to buy.
