Best of the Best

July 15, 2019

After a second round of voting in the Daily Herald's Reader's Choice awards, The Little Traveler was named Best of the Best in 4 categories. The Daily Herald's readership spans a huge geographic area, pretty much the entire Chicago suburbs, so this is kind of a big deal. Thank you to everyone who voted!

Congratulations are in order for these women and their teams:


As you wander the store, look up and be dazzled by our eclectic assortment of chandeliers, from contemporary to traditional in crystal, iron, glass, you name it. We also have several lamps throughout the store, many of them in the Tiffany style, as well as outdoor lighting and bathroom fixtures.

Congrats to our Home Decor buyer & manager, Marcia Hardin, and her team.


The fashion industry is international and so are the collections in our Clothing Galleries. Find top quality fashions from leading designers in the USA and around the globe. We buy with you in mind, so you're sure to find the latest trends as well as classic essential wardrobe pieces that never go out of style. 

Congrats to our Women's Apparel buyer, Leslie Waterson, and all of our resident fashionistas.


The Little Traveler's toy shop is filled with mind-tingling and tummy-tickling games and toys for every child. We've got a marvelous selection of brain-teasing games, toys, and books for children of all ages, plus stuffed animals, trains, cars, helicopters, things that light up, things that ding, things that will take your imagination places it's never ventured before. 

Congrats to associate Janice Gallagher (a/k/a the Toy Lady) and again to Marcia, who also buys for and manages our Toy Room, and to the whole Toy Room crew.


When you visit our front room, dedicated to teas of all kinds, we think you’ll agree that we have one of the broadest and most unusual collections of teas in the area. The Little Traveler has everything from traditional Earl Greys and black teas to fruity teas and flavors you'd never even imagine. The latest trend in teas is wellness, so come in to find the blend best suited to soothe what ails you.

Congrats to our Tea Room buyer, Jane Bristow, and all of Team Gourmet.
