Happy New Year!


Shop Small Chicago began as Tonya Gross Millinery in 2006: from hedge fund to headwear to head of fashion programming for the City of Chicago, Shop Small Chicago's roots are in leveraging business experience, couture design and creativity to forge a sustainable business that showcases our brands, American-made products made by other regional brands, and premier events that promote shopping with women- and minority-owned businesses and local manufacturing.

Shop Small Chicago designs a line of accessories including apparel, totes, patches, and hats (of course) and offers bespoke, custom design services for special event headwear including weddings, Kentucky Derby, and fancy parties and shopping event production.
