Rad Pop!: A Vibrant Vintage Haven and Hair Salon in Edgewater

Edgewater, a vibrant neighborhood on Chicago’s North Side, has welcomed a unique and captivating fusion of style and creativity with the grand opening of Rad Pop! Vintage Emporium and Rad Hair Salon.

Vintage Charm Meets Edgy Style

Nestled at 5820 N. Broadway, Rad Pop!’s vintage emporium is a treasure trove of carefully curated trinkets from six passionate sellers, including owner Rachel Dennis. With a keen eye for thrifting, Dennis has assembled a diverse collection that includes colorful glassware, charming figurines, whimsical taper candle holders, and vibrant clothing.

A Hair Salon in the Heart of Vintage

Step into the cozy salon room tucked away in the back of the emporium, where Tim White, a skilled hairdresser, offers his expert services. The salon’s intimate atmosphere provides a sanctuary for clients looking to enhance their hairstyles.

Queer-Owned, Community-Inspired

Dennis, a lesbian-identifying entrepreneur, is proud to have created a space that celebrates the LGBTQ+ community. “I envision Rad Pop! as the next generation of queer-owned vintage stores,” she says. “It’s a place where everyone feels welcome and appreciated.”

Sellers with Distinct Finds

Brendan Fallon, a seller at Rad Pop!, specializes in natural materials like glass, wood, and leather. He joined the collective after meeting Dennis at an estate sale, recognizing the shared passion and community spirit.

Patti Jakab, another seller, underscores the importance of vintage shopping in adding character and uniqueness to any space. “Vintage pieces have a charm that modern items simply can’t replicate,” she remarks.
