Meet my new idol. Her name is Lynne McDaniel and she owns An Orange Moon, a crazy gorgeous, inspiring and carefully curated (I am so sick of that word but it seems so appropriate here) shop here in Chicago. I met Lynne’s bubbly, exuberant, super-sweet self last year at an estate sale in Hyde Park. She gave me a great price on my first grown-up piece of furniture and I finally made it to her brick and mortar shop this past Friday. Am I using too many superlatives here? Take a look at her shop; you would, too.
I had a ball going from room to room and browsing Lynne’s wares. Everything in the shop is merchandised beautifully and best of all, it is fairly priced. In a city that likes to gauge you on everything from parking to … well, everything, it’s nice to visit a shop with such value– especially for the items An Orange Moon stocks.
Tanisha picked up this beautiful lamp for $79.
The occasion for the gathering on Friday night was a silent auction. Poetry and food by Tamale Spaceship and live music by a Chicago crooner whose name I didn’t catch but who provided our ladies night with some much needed soul music rounded out the evening.
Visit now! Better yet, invite me to come with you and buy me stuff.
