I promised a post on this wonderful vintage shop: Renew.

It’s in downtown Geneva, right on the Fox river, so you can walk there from my friend Ll’s place.


I have mentioned before that Chicagoland has great thrift stores, but this place is really well edited.  Even if I don’t find anything I want to actually buy, I always have fun looking here.  And yes, this is where I found the pink embroidered cowboy boots!  (which were still there last time I checked)

The stuff I’ve found there isn’t the usual mishmash of vintage; it’s very well curated so there’s a lot of whimsy, texture and color.  They also have a section just for bridesmaids and wedding dresses!  Oh so much tulle!  And Satin!  There’s just something inherently funny about used wedding dresses.
