Bucktown's Hidden Gem- Valentia

Valentia has opened in the space formerly the home of Ms. Catwalk at 2042 N. Damen Avenue and what a refreshing boutique and warm addition this shop is. Valentia is focused on eclectic collection of housewares, home decor, glassware, fair trade clothing, accessories, jewelry, some furniture & baby items...and more. Some of the items are even made by local artists and students.

The first thing you notice upon entering is the one-of-a-kind fair trade clothing: shirts, dresses in rich gem tones and the interesting way the shop is set up. The owner is an interior designer so each part of the store is set up to reflect the way in which the products will be used.

For example, the kitchen items are displayed in the kitchen, the bedding is showcased in the bedroom, bath items in the bathroom etc.

What we personally love about Valentia is these items are truly one of a kind.Where else can you find a lobster clutch or small pig salt & pepper shakers?  The key here is to buy something you like when you see it. Because they are one-of-a-kind, there's no restocking. So if you miss it, you miss out.

The other thing we love about Valentia is that the items are affordable. Since Valentia is located a tiny bit north of Armitage on Damen Ave, it could be easy to miss. So make a point of stopping by. You'll be glad you did.
