about us

learn a little about our boutique

our story

Art Effect opened in 1984 and the shop has evolved over the years to become a true Lincoln Park shopping destination. We are a modern day general store with a chic high-low mix. Our staff is friendly, our atmosphere is relaxed and our space is expansive, perfect for browsing. 

Our jewelry cases feature both fun pieces at affordable prices and a carefully curated selection of hand-crafted fine jewelry from designers such as Jamie Joseph and Margaret Solow. Clothing offerings range from perfect basics such as Michael Stars tees to special pieces from designers such as Johnny Was and Velvet.

our philosophy

Our constantly changing selection make us a favorite of locals and tourists alike. People love Art Effect because they can “one stop shop”. Decadent bath and body products, fun knick-knacks and one-of-a-kind items in a dazzling variety, we have it all.

We have gifts for every occasion, things that are funny, whimsical, even a little crazy! Find just the right thing, even for that person who has everything. 

“Art Effect is a never-ending treasure chest of eclectic goods and extraordinary finds. There's excitement around every corner.” - Esther Fishman
