Located on Armitage Avenue in Lincoln Park, customers love Art Effect because they can “one stop shop”. Our constantly changing selection of women’s clothing, jewelry, and accessories alongside unique home decor, and bath and body products make us a favorite of locals and tourists alike. We stock gifts for every occasion, things that are funny, whimsical, even a little crazy!
Esther Fishman opened Art Effect in 1984 to sell her artist-friend’s clothing and jewelry. The shop has evolved over the years becoming a true shopping destination and modern day general store with a chic high-low mix. Our jewelry cases feature fun statement pieces at affordable prices and boast a carefully curated selection of hand crafted treasures from designers including Uno de 50, Melissa Joy Manning and Julie Rofman. Clothing offerings range from perfect basics including Michael Stars tees and Splendid leggings to killer jeans from Henry & Belle and dresses from Bailey 44 and Velvet.
“We try to do trends, but things that can also go forward, that you’ll have in your closet for a long time,” -Esther Fishman.
