Why did the bambino cross the road?
To get to Threadless Kids, opening today in Wicker Park. The shop sells mini versions (sizes newborn to 12 years) of the brand’s graphic-printed apparel that’s designed and then voted on by the public.
Browse comfy cotton onesies, “hoodsies” (a hoodie-onesie hybrid), and tees — all made in limited quantities. Also up for grabs: nursery decor, including Blik wall decals and original prints of popular Threadless designs.
A coloring corner stocked with wall-mounted drawing pads and crayons keeps kiddies occupied.
It’s all worth a trip to the other side.
