Do you find yourself drawn to a vintage style wedding, a shabby chic setting, a rustic-styled photo shoot, or a chic party? Do you spend hours swooning through wedding blogs and Pinterest looking for inspiration? Is your special event or target date fast approaching?

Now is the time to start finding these treasured items that you love and Shadowbox Dreams can help you!

Time is precious and so is your budget, so we are here to help alleviate the stress of finding that particular item, such as a victorian sofa, rustic table or vanity dresser.  We offer one of a kind (OOAK) items that you won’t see anywhere else in the Chicago area – or the country!  Take a peek at our inventory, or come visit us in person. 


Now that you have an idea of your vision, you may become frustrated trying to pull it all together. ShadowBox Dreams will help you simplify the process.  We have created a variety of  vignette packages to help relieve the creative hurdles you may encounter.  Each vignette will have the basic props that are needed to create the perfect setting for your guests or audience to enjoy.
We will gladly meet you for a FREE consultation to brainstorm and to ensure that we are the right fit for your event.
Additionally,  we also work with local vendors who specialize in custom/DIY items. If you refer to our Vendor page,  you will be amazed at all the talented people we are affiliated with.


We would love to meet with your event planner/coordinator to help finalize the details for your event. If you do not have an event planner or coordinator, we will step in and provide our professional services to style and prep your vignette for a very reasonable rate. Contact us for a quote


If you do not require delivery, you are more than welcome to pick up your order 24 hrs prior to your event.  Please contact us at least a week in advance to give us ample time to pull and pack your order. We kindly ask that you return the items the morning after your event.   Items should be returned packed and wrapped the same as when they were delivered. For larger items, our delivery crew will drop off and pick up our props within 20 hours.  Just contact us to make an appointment.
