We love vintage. We love great people. We love a good score.

Kokorokoko is a happy addition to the Chicago vintage scene, a spot unabashedly awash in the vain glory of the 80s, 90s and ‘aughts.

It’s a tiny shop, well merchandised, but not for someone that can’t appreciate a pack of MC Hammer collector cards.

There’s vintage floral bandage dresses, neon graphic tees, belts galore, sunglasses, jewelry, nonsense and good shoes. We recommend going if you’re looking for a little color – this is a good place to find it.

Like all vintage shops, you might want to make it a habit. Or just make good friends with the owner.
