shop love: an orange moon

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.
