Treasure Hunt

The North Shore offers a plethora of stores, boutiques, and galleries. In Winnetka, book-lovers can browse at The Book Stall. Those seeking coastal accoutrements for their homes or beach cottages shouldn’t miss Winnetka’s Seagrass. In Glencoe, fashionistas can zero in on Nicchia for chic clothing and Shirise for high-end designer shoes. In mostly residential Lake Bluff, the Friday farmers’ market makes for a delicious outing.
