Your interest in hunting falls somewhere between curling and motocross.
Tracking down one-of-a-kind vintage and up-and-coming designers is another story.
Wicker Park’s newest shop, Caza (Spanish for “the hunt”), is an easy target. Former Lenny & Me owner Alison Veit recently joined ranks with a new creative team (Ana Autrey, Whitney Faile), overhauling the space and melding midcentury with modern to create what the trio calls a boutique-style department store.
Contemporary items, like Baggu bags, mingle with those from indie sources, like Saudade jewelry. On the vintage end, shop 1920s dresses, colorful Versace blouses, and conversation-starting furniture (Kimball baby grand, anyone?). Deck your tabletop with Japanese-inspired ceramics and ’50s dishware.
Gifts and accessories with Scandinavian, Southwestern (woven purses, chunky necklaces), or art deco flair round out the selection.
And aim to please.
Caza, 1459 North Milwaukee Avenue, between Evergreen Avenue and Honore Street (773-227-7774 or cazachicago.com).
