I was also a lucky duck and got to be part of the grand opening party for Room 363 in Naperville. I wasn't sure about who was doing the pictures for this event so I just snapped a few pictures with my phone and tried really hard to make them decent on PicMonkey. At the end of the post I will link to a few more places where you can read about the grand opening and see a lot
Mark, the owner, did a fab job of styling the front courtyard of the house wedged in between the newer more modern shops and eateries in downtown Naperville. He even provided entertainment - as if we needed more than the store itself...
The store is AMAZING. It is packed with all the coolest vintage stuff you could imagine. And I do mean packed. On top of all the stuff there were about a million people shopping and gawking and rushing around grabbing up all the really cute clothes Mark sells. I'm not even a fashion kind of girl, but I know great vintage style clothing when I see it!
They even have a few things for the boys!
The vignettes were incredible.
I would consider this a MUST SEE shop if you live in, or are visiting the Chicago area.
Not convinced? Check out more pictures at Room 363 blog. Jen Rizzo took the pictures - and clearly got a sneak peak because there weren't any people in most of her pictures.
Then run over to The Gilded Junqeyard and check out the write up and pictures by Jeanie - one of the three Gilded Junqeyard girls. I got to meet her at the grand opening. She's a real cutie! She has more pictures of the clothing. Good stuff.
