This store is a true treasure trove. I loved the fact that when I walked in there was music playing and the fragrant incense that set the tone. The store's owner, Sister Rose, is a true jewel. The store sells all types of African masks, drums, shea butter, black soaps, African fabrics, clothes. This store also carries original artwork i.e. pictures, hand carved wood statues, and jewelry. I love it. Not to mention that it has all of the Obama buttons, hats, and shirts.
Mr. Ash is a local treasure and no visit to Chicago is complete without stopping by his shop. Who cares if it's a little "cluttered" there are treasures to be found everywhere you turn! I was told Jeff McBride spent hours digging through the shops vast inventory. When you're done at Willis Tower ... stop by and see a real landmark!
