Did You Miss Us on WTTW's Chicago Tonight?

Remember the fun of browsing through an old-fashioned, independent, mom-and-pop antique shop? The kind that hardly exists in this day of online shopping? Well, there's still one here, on a shady side street in Evanston, Illinois, that's battling the odds by continuing to sell the old and the authentic, as it has for going on 30 years.

Eureka! exterior

Eureka! Antiques and Collectibles specializes in paper — postcards, local historical documents, political memorabilia, sheet music, every kind of ephemera — and assorted "smalls". We don't have much furniture and very little crystal or fine china (we can send you to other, nearby shops, for those.)

If you're looking for vintage Valentines, colorful costume jewelry, movie stills, opera and theatre programs, advertising collectibles, Black memorabilia, or anything from a World's Fair (particularly if it's one of the Chicago World's Fairs), try us. We're a crowded shop full of surprises, just like the best ones always were — and friendly! And of course, we're always buying!
