A modern day general store
Chicago, IL and online
is the description of Art Effect
on their site. It really is a very apt description. If we need a gift, we can ALWAYS find something here.
The products in the store
range from clothing, shoes and jewelery to toys (and cds, books, bags and makeup) to what we are really
interested in here at AT - home goods. Over the years the percentage of housewares Art Effect carries has seemed to increase, but it can vary by season.
Great selections: candles
, fancy soap, cute aprons, unusual mezuzot
Prices cover the spectrum - its possible to spend under $10 or well into the hundreds, but the scope is as wide as the selection of goods. The diversity of objects continues with its sourcing. There are mass-produced items, crafty small-production items and vintage one-of-a-kinds.
We've been tempted by all sorts of things on our visits: knitting baskets, glassware, trays, cookbooks...
What will you find?
