Store Crush: We've Got It Bad For Vintage Smith

Chicago boutique buzz is hummin' with tales of Vintage Smith. Owned and operated by nicest-and-coolest-guy-ever Matt Smith, the store is stocked with vintage wares mostly for men, but with a powerful unisex quality that we don't mind at all. Rather than wax on like a 7th grader with a Twilight problem, we're taking you on a virtual boutique tour to pique your interest. Stop by Vintage Smith during your holiday shopping adventures, chat with Matt about his unreal collection of vintage Americana, and give better gifts than, well...everyone this year. Vintage Smith, 2041 N Damen Avenue (at Dickens Avenue).
