vintage-inspired to modern chic

something for everyone

Located in the City Centre of downtown Elmhurst, Evelyn on Second specializes in unique gifts. Handmade goods coexist with a carefully curated selection of merchandise from all over the globe. We feature women’s accessories, specialty gifts, and sweet things for the littles with an eye for design, trend and quality.

Evelyn on Second is the big little sister of Evelyn Jane Boutique in Downers Grove, which opened in 2013. The shop was so much fun that we decided to open a second location in 2017.

come on in

have a look around

We take great pride in storytelling through our merchandising. Our customers love to meander around the shop, often lingering to take in the delightful scents of our candles and peek around the corner to catch a glimpse of something they didn’t see the first time around. The shop is constantly evolving with unique, new merchandise and fresh displays. Come in and see why our customers call us their go-to gift shop!

love notes

The other night at book club we talked about how much we love this gem of a shop! The selection is unique, the prices are reasonable, and the merchandising is on point. It’s a unanimous fave! The entire experience is enjoyable from the beginning to a beautifully packaged end. Please don’t ever go anywhere!
