Attitude is on steroids in this well-stocked boutique, with edgy fashion and laugh-out-loud gifts for any occasion. Victoria’s on Main, located at 116 N. York in Elmhurst (331 642-0116), promises “a little of this and that.” Handbags by Brynn Capella of Chicago are distinctive, and difficult to resist, as are the butter-soft leather jackets for men and women. One-of-a-kind jewelry items, leather and sterling earrings and wallets made from cork are among the best sellers.
Can soap be sarcastic? The wrapper on one bar describes it as “Bright, fresh and piney with hints of nobody cares.” One of many gifts for teachers is a mug that says, “I became a teacher for the money and fame.” Some books are serious, others not so much, such as Words That Don’t Exist for Feelings That Do. Beer and wine accessories, steak saws and a wine bottle glow-cork are among many whimsical gifts you’ll find in this trove of treasures. Open Tue - Sat, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sun, 10 a.m to 6 p.m.Edit Module
