A Secret Closet
Chicago is home to innumerable vintage clothing stores across the city, but none can beat the loving tenderness of the Lincoln Square neighborhood’s A Secret Closet. Piled high with costume jewelry, arrayed with any number of sunglasses, shoes and handbags, and two well-dressed mannequins, the proprietors of this little shop across from the Davis Theater in Lincoln Square change their window display daily. Without exception, every day. And every day it is decked out with amazing fifties- and sixties-era wares for sale at bargain basement prices, constantly drawing pause from pedestrians to admire the day’s selections. And you should, too.
