Priding itself on carrying unique, handmade clothing and accessories, Milk Handmade is the product of owner and native Chicagoan Hallie Borden’s childhood dream. The new Andersonville store opening Tuesday is filled with pieces from local Chicago brands including Mohop, Nicki Jean, Nicolet Candles. Designs sent even from Australia and Rome round out Milk Handmade’s collection of one-of-a-kind treasures. I met with Hallie this past weekend to discuss the store’s opening, the distinctiveness of handmade and her favorite place in the city. Read on for the full interview.

Kids These Days rapper Vic Mensa going in on a Blended Babies/Chuck Inglish produced track. Video produced by the very talented Austin Vesely. Fun to see “Blazin” take on more meanings than just smoking weed… big things ahead for him. If you’re in Champaign make sure to check out Kids These Days performing at Anniversary Plaza for Union Fest. 1401 Green St., expect the band to perform around 9:30 PM.

Milagres was in town last Sunday night for a performance at Schuba’s. Chicago was given an intimate show to cap off their weekend by a Brooklyn-based band excited to play.
