Happy Holidays from Quimby's!

Step into the wintery wonderland that is the Quimby’s holiday window display! Designed by our Artist-in-Residence Ashley Wilfong* (an actual position here that is totally not made up) and assisted by employee-and-artiste Echo Elise Gonzalez (check out her Dream Bindery notebooks!), the window features staff favorite books, zines, and gifts peppered among miniature buildings and festooned trees. Don’t miss the Chicago skyline in the background, the garland of colorful zines, and the tree hanging with mini-zine ornaments. Stop by anytime from 12-6 Th-M and peruse our collection of books, zines, comics, and curiosities. The store is filled with perfect gift options of every size–come in and grab something for your friends, family, maybe even yourself? We won’t tell.

* Ashley relocated this year from West Virginia to Chicago, where she is constantly reminded of the magic of our city. This is her first time making a public display and she designed it to be a place where a tiny two-headed mouse would like to live. Check out her neighborhood favorite cocktail bar Nighthawk in Albany Park.
