World Market in the old Sears building is really cool

I finally got down to Lake street to check out the 'World Market' that's in the restored Sears building.

Neat: I felt like I was in an artisan marketplace in Mexico or something - everyone there I talked to was so invested in their visions & ideas and what they're selling: it's their mom's hommade soaops, or arts from their homeland of Tibet that's controlled by China, or it's Mexican candies & religious nick-nacks just like you'd find in stores in Mexico - just, so authentic.

I really enjoyed talking with the people there & I encourage you to check it out, and buy local when you giftshop or whatnot. It's good.
