If you have not been to Roost yet (located in Andersonville at 5634 N. Clark) I demand to know why not. I love this store SO MUCH. The guy that owns it is a genius. His merchandise, his displays, and the overall vibe of the store is phenomenal. I walk by it daily on my walk, and I have a bad feeling that will end up being very expensive for me. I watched these planters for weeks before I broke down and bought them:

These are going to be SWEET on the back porch this summer.

The prices aren’t thrift store prices but I think they’re TOTALLY reasonable for this type of store — much less expensive than most of the antique stores lining that stretch of Clark these days. ¬†Five stars and two thumbs up.
