Week in Awesome XVIII / by Julie Schumacher

Do, Go & See

Friday, December 4th, Production Mode's storefront/exhibition space, Department of Curiosities, is hosting a show of work by the League of Women Designers, including Sharon Burdett, Maria Boustead, and Erin Huizenga. Most members own their own businesses and manufacture here in Chicago, so lots of local/women-owned goodness!). Curated by Eve Fineman and inspired by the golden age of department stores. Spend this week shopping the catalog in preparation.

It's chilly (finally!). Head to one of Food & Wine's 11 best indie coffee shops, Heritage Bicycles General Store, for something super warm and yummy.

FIFTY new kantha blankets are available from Hand & Cloth.
