Citywoods is a beautiful little gallery located in downtown Highland Park, IL and specializes in unique handmade pieces from all over the country. This gem of a shop first opened in 1988 and is still run by its original owner, Diana and Robert Schaps. Citywoods showcases a vast variety of art pieces ranging from beautiful wooden furniture and room decorations to fine handmade jewelry and clothing. Nearly five years ago, at my first One of a Kind Show, a buyer from Citywoods came by my booth in the emerging artist section and bought an original Luna Pendant with peridot for herself. A couple of weeks later, they contacted me with a wholesale order. Citywoods was one of the first galleries to sell my jewelry, and it has been a wonderful relationship ever since. They continue to feature the Luna pendant with a variety of gemstones as it's one of their best sellers.


We love Citywoods, because we share a similar mission - making art more accessible to people and enriching lives with one of a kind pieces of art. So if you are ever looking for a unique gift idea, drop by Citywoods, or check out their online shop here, because chances are you will find just what you are looking for!

    Rebecca, I enjoyed reading your description of Citywoods. My husband and I run BlackTree Studio Pottery, in New Carlisle, IN. We recently were part of the Lake Forest art festival where someone from Citywoods saw our work, and subsequently sent an email inquiring about selling our work, etc. It’s really great to read first hand experiences from artists who have worked with a particular store. Looks like it has been a positive relationship.
