  • Beautiful space filled with interesting and strange little collections. It's a fun place to spend a bit of time just wandering around. 
  • Easy access to excellent very beautiful artifacts, a little confused in IDs, many cool jewelry.

  • A great spot to go searching for that architectural piece to complete your restoration / renovation - or to just see what interesting things they have. 
  • Amazing pieces. I especially love the mid-century Italian table soccer games. I would take a star off because the designer prices are a little steep for the average person who isn't trying to fill the walls of a theme restaurant with conversation pieces. However they are obviously very successful and know their market, so they shouldn't suffer due to my lack of wealth. The owner has a remarkable eye for interesting and unique items. Maybe they should do a TV show where they scour dusty barns and off the beaten path junk yards for collector pieces to fill the shop...oh wait...
  • It's a neat place to browse around. Cool layout. 3 floors. Lots of interesting antiques from all over the world. It doesn't seem like anything is actually priced to move. It would be neat as an event space and it looks like that's how it's often used
  • Had a contract for three months, put a deposit down, and they cancelled our contract due to a double booking on their end. Offered no help and no accommodations for our date. Rude and not helpful to work with. Also, not the first time other venues have heard of Artifacts double booking. Save yourself!
  • Pretty cool place to walk around or for events, but prices are outrageous.
  • This place is such a treasure. It's 3.5 stories of some of the strangest and coolest stuff you'll find in Chicago. The guy that runs it travels the world collecting eclectic pieces, everything from antique furniture to German mopeds from the 1950s to really creepy mannequin babies. And so much more! Most of the stuff for sale there is pretty expensive, but it's set up more like a museum so you can look around at everything without feeling pressured to buy something. You could easily spend a few hours in there and not even see everything. It's a fun place to play hide-and-seek in.
