Time for Some Shop Talk

Updated 1/ the comments for great specifics about the additions!  At this time we're just making a list of shops, (not shows or flea markets). 

Last week I asked for the names of fun antique shops & malls.  The kinds of places that make your heart beat faster when you walk in.  Your eyes are darting around at all the goodness and  you can't decide which way to go first! 

We've got some great suggestions so far, but I know there are far more to be found.  Let's keep growing the list, and once it gets longer I'll add it to my sidebar permanently.

Chicago:  Posh - State Street
