When you walk into Asrai Garden the overwhelming scent of flowers and candles hits you right away. It's a good feeling, stepping from a busy Wicker Park street into a little oasis of crisp, clean smells.
Asrai is stocked with bunches of flowers, soaps, scented candles, housewares and unique gifts, including cards from Tennis Anyone and handmade dolls by Tamar Mogendorff. They also have a Ukranian Village location on Superior Street.
Although Asrai doesn't have a website, they have received some online press coverage, including an interview with owner Elizabeth Cronin at Centerstage Chicago.
