001 Yearbook

Tucked in the southwest side of Chicago is the charming shop, Yearbook. Store owners, Jef & Noel, have created a unique collection of academic paraphernalia mixed with essential home goods. It’s almost like they walked into the movie set Dead Poets Society and took all the beautiful props. It’s meticulously merchandised in a way that you can’t help but be inspired to decorate your home with one of their products. I personally fell in love with their vintage collegiate selection. The framed yale flag, school house chairs, jacket pins, trophies…I wanted it all!

what’s one of your favorite shops that has inspired you lately?

    Next time I’m in Chicago, I’ll definitely need to stock up on any ‘Cuse memorabilia!

    This looks like a fantastic store to get lost in!

  4. I absolutely love the way the store is curated!

    Thanks for featuring this spot! I’m sooo going to visit when I’m in Chicago this fall. Here in SF, I get a ton of similar inspiration from The Perish Trust and Big Daddy Antiques. I featured both with tons of pictures, too.

    Aw man! I was really hoping this place was in San Francisco! Oh well, now I have to plan a trip to Chicago!! :)

    ..absolutely inspiring place!

    This is very cool, and great inspiration for my upcoming trip to Chicago! At home, liberty is always a magical, inspiring place – imagine beautifully curated, artfully crowded wood panelled rooms.

    Swoon, this place looks spectacular, the kind of bazaar that belongs on a set. I agree with Beth that Liberty of London is definitely the most inspiring big store in Britain.

    There needs to be more unique stores like this, you could spend hours looking at this kind of stuff.

    Okay, so I’m a bit biases since I work at this shop but Noun: A Person’s Place for Things in Portland, Oregon has a great selection of vintage goodies that you might enjoy.
    Check it out next time you’re in PDX! :)
