Of course you love Chicago. And we know you love stuff for your home. From high end to thrift and back - you know where to shop. We are working on creating a BEST OF CHICAGO for 2006 and we'd really appreciate your help. Here's how it works : we'll put up a post dedicated to one category of store and readers should nominate their favorite stores by adding comments. After a few days, we'll go through the comments, collect the nominees and repost the category as a survey to find your best. Sound complicated? It will be super clear after a few days. Don't worry. With your help, by the end of the year we'll have an excellent rundown of the BEST OF CHICAGO 2006. We're kicking off the project later today with our first category - Best Shop for Modern Gifts....keep an eye out for it and feel free to nominate your favorites.
