Trekking around Chicago with touristy purchases like Frank Lloyd Wright's mini stained glass windows, Chicago coasters and Culver Freezes' teddy bears isn't a lot of fun if you don't have that extra piece of luggage you KNOW you're going to need once you've finally finished your vacation shopping. I spent at least three days looking in Macy's and other department stores for some sort of sturdy tote carry-on sized situation, but couldnt find anything that was exactly what I was looking for. I was walking across the street to get to the parking below Michigan Avenue from the Taste and directly ahead of me was a luggage store that said, "We've got the bag you're looking for". Dude.
So, I went in and started looking around and an older woman who was surprisingly helpful, sprightly and chipper asked me what I was looking for (see above). She took me to the oversized totes for walkers and travelers, the section for duffle bags in pink and powder blue and showed me a few back packs that were not my style but fit what I was looking for in size and color. She was so helpful and non-pushy that I actually felt perfectly okay with opening the bags, putting my hand in to feel the fabrics and check to see how many inner pockets they had. It was very chill / no pressure compared to other luggage stores where they kind of hover over you and the luggage seems more like a piece of art on display - not to be touched, please - than something you might actually be interested in lugging on a plane.
So if you're somewhere around Michigan Avenue in the Chicago area and need an extra carry on, purse, backpack and/or rolling luggage set I would drop in and see what they might have for you, as well.

PROS: friendly, no pressure environment
CONS:
