Best Once-a-Month Market for Vintage Wares, Small Plates, and Boozy Snow Cones 

Dose

You probably won't find a bargain at Dose, but that's not to say you won't find something precious. The year-old monthly market, which celebrates its birthday on June 24, brings together, for a day, some of Chicago's most interesting electronics (vintage suitcase speakers from Gentleman's Boombox), accessories (Laura Lombardi's delicately urban necklaces fashioned from recycled material), must-have pantry items (including the retail debut this Sunday of house-milled flour and fresh pasta from Nellcote—winner of Best In-House Pasta over in our Food & Drink section), alcoholic treats (spiked snow cones from Jo Snow), and other adorable eccentricities, such as vintage camp gear and dollhouses that double as adult decor. If it all sounds very Wes Anderson, it is.
