Armadillo’s Pillow Bookstore

Armadillo's Pillow Bookstore

Nested within the friendly neighborhood of Rogers Park, The Armadillo’s Pillow is easy to spot, with its quirky spectacle and outdoor shelf of $1 books that is hard to resist browsing through when walking along the stretch of Sheridan Road.

They “specialize in common, uncommon & hard-to-find used books.” Aside from a big selection of literature, they also sell art, incense, and local crafts such as handmade notebooks and jewelry. My personal favorite is hunting for vintage books that are either first printing or just simply old and/or rare. I bought a few old books printed in the 1950s and 1970s.

With their peculiar furniture selection, eccentric interior displays, and obscure business name, The Armadillo’s Pillow truly offers a unique book shopping experience.

    1. We have quite a lot of them here in Chicago! Local independent bookshops are the best. (; You can also find great deals on used books. Thanks for dropping by my blog and I am also enjoying yours – crocheting is such a unique hobby!
