I stopped in at Patina in Ravenswood this weekend at 4907 N Damen in Chicago (finally) and met the owner Alan Shull. The store has been there almost a year and a half now. He definitely carries furniture and art that I'm interested in and my house is only two blocks away...so it's a bit ridiculous I have not been in previously.
Thanks Alan... and with a few more closings this spring I may be able to pick out a few favorites from the store.
