Chicago part 2 - Vintage Shopping & Wicker Park

earwax cafe (now defunct)

The day we spent wandering round Wicker Park was one of my favourites. There are so many cool shops and cafe's there! We initially wanted to eat in Earwax cafe as it is a favourite place for comic artists like Jeffrey Brown to go and draw but sadly it had closed down. However we found the Wormhole cafe which was great - the inside was filled with 80's memorabilia, there's even a DeLorean in the window! Other cool shops included the strangely titled Boring Store (which was far from boring inside) and Rudy's Roundup which was amazing. I bought a few things there as gifts for people but if I'd had more money I probably would've spent a lot more inside.

We also visited a cool shop in Andersonville called Woolly Mammoth, a vintage shop filled with curious objects (and rather a lot of taxidermy, plus a mummified cat eep!). I could've spent all day looking at the strange things inside there.
