Last weekend was the Ravenswood ArtWalk, so Mark and I took the opportunity to explore our neighborhood a little more. The area has a great arts community, but ever since we moved to this area of the city, we haven't seen all it has to offer arts-wise. Anyway, we decided to venture to Architectural Artifacts, which houses all kinds of beautiful objects ranging from letterpress type, to giant old signs, mannequins and light fixtures. Every corner was a total surprise, which is what made it so fun! I especially enjoyed all the interesting old type I found on packaging from years and years ago.
