Antiques/Kitsch

I enjoy three shops in my neighborhood, Edgewater.  They are within 2 blocks of each other on Broadway.

Broadway Antique Market - 6130 N Broadway, (773) 743-5444 - an interesting shop with a variety of mostly antiques, a little kitsch adding to it.   This is the "fanciest" of the three shops.

Green Element Resale - 6241 N Broadway, (773) 942-6522 - a most wonderful kitsch shop, with huge quantities of many different things, a great place to wander

Edgewater Antique Mall - 6314 N Broadway, (773) 262-2525, a carefully organized place with craft booths for many many vendors, a lot of interesting stuff.
