Lindsay Lewis Doses a fresh collection of original, exceptional adornment, as does Cities in Dust, Margaret Buckman, HVNTER GVTHERER and more. Two of these brainy beauties are also showing new, handmade artware for the home. Pure love. Get some!

Chef Jelena, a woman you already know and love for her fantastic Caffe Streets scones, launches Time Machine Juice, a cold-pressed offering bubbling up from her many years dishing out the most nutritious dishes for private clients. Can we get a hell yes? Hell yes.

Ann Everett debuts with a wide assortment of Chicago-perfect wardrobe staples including this smart tote whipped into shape from a hide of Horween leather. We heart it and adore her knit linen sweaters and organic cotton blouses: well-made basics win forever.

Speaking of smart (and sumptuous and handsome), get a load of CHCG, a line of perfectly cut and appointed men’s t-shirts and loungewear and, above, smile-making boutonniere’s for the coolest dudes rocking suits, handmade by Dose newcomer Shah Riaz. One in every color, please.

We couldn’t be more excited to introduce you to the gracious hospitality of Hinton Cannery, everything from scratch. Named for their Southern great grandmothers, this duo will Dose for the first time their perfectly pickled vegetables, fruits and relishes while serving up scone and croissant sandwiches to enjoy with Dark Matter‘s 2Pacas, our favorite roast.

Anna Brown is another one fresh on the scene and we couldn’t be happier to support this young talent coming up in a quiet/gigantic way: her work is deeply personal and highly wearable, a combination that makes for pieces you won’t want to take off. Hello Fall look, you made it.

The walls inside Billy’s Galerie F tell stories we always want to hear and we’re excited for you to take home a piece of this showcase collection featuring many of Chicago’s best working street artists. Also, HAM, a new West Loop gallery, joins us this Sunday, ensuring not an inch of your wall space goes unloved. We love supporting promising talent and both of these galleries do so in a big, affordable way.

Chelli of CHC has made huge strides building and evolving her collection and she enters this season with an expanded yet tightly controlled collection: Dawn|Dusk. Easy to adore for years and years, these forever pieces are for both men and women to carry all day.

The Chowaniec bros are making it fun to get down with authentic Polish recipes, turning the dial on the traditional in order to edge it up for the well-educated palate: say hello to The Chow Brothers at Dose this Sunday and leave with super krauts and a belly full of truly unorthodox pierogis, aka pure pleasure. Above, the pair’s beet salad is a runaway hit.

With the contents is even sexier than the packaging, Kolossos is the go-to oil for our own kitchens and the best gift for all house-warming parties. Launching a trio of organic wine vinegars this Sunday, consider us excited to get in and stay in the kitchen when the weather turns.

Oh, and … so much more! Plus, get a load of this: Lauren of Lo + Co Custom Sneaks is taking orders for her super rad hand-painted kicks this Sunday! The pair above, custom for the Head Dosette and photographed by Low Res Studio, make our hearts sing. Dose in shoe form is ALMOST as nice as the real thing …
