As religious goods stores disappear, I took to the internet to find Infant of Prague clothes. I have several Infants & always purchased in the neighborhood.Before the store closed the lady who owned it said that she use to get the clothes made by the Sisters, but they no longer did this & the clothes coming out of China were of poor quality. I found this site & thought the gowns looked nice. Trust me the pictures do not do them justice. I ordered the satin beaded in white & it is absolutely gorgeous. Well made & beautiful. I will definitely order again!
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!
