Tips for Getting Here:
If driving north on York from St. Charles Road, make a right at Palmer Drive. This will take you under the only train underpass in the city. There are frequent freight and metra trains that could add 15 minutes to your travel time. Palmer will bring you right back to York Street, and almost to our front door. Park across the street in the free municipal lot on the right, just before York Street.
If traveling northbound on I-294, you will eventually need to get on to I-290 westbound because there is no exit off of I-294 to get to the shop. In order to do that, please make sure that you take the I-294W exit toward Rockford/Chicago/I-290E. Then you will keep left at the fork to continue on to I-290W. After getting onto I-290W, you will then exit at IL 64W/ E North Ave. (exit 13B) You will go about a mile and then turn left onto York St. The shop will be on your right in about 1/2 mile. Park across the street in the free municipal lot (you'll need to turn left onto Palmer Drive to enter the parking lot).
If traveling by Metra from Chicago: take the Union Pacific West line to Elmhurst Station, which is at York Street. Then go north on York a little more than a block (past York Theater) we will be on the left.
