Don't Hurry Yourself 5/7/2006

I think it may just be a stereotype that gay men love kitsch (think John Waters on the Simpsons), but this store feeds the stereotype. All kinds of TV and movie memorabilia fill this store on Halsted in the heart of Boystown. Everything you could need or desire from all of your favourite tv shows from 30 years ago, as well as more current fare. If you need a Family Guy doll, go to Gaymart. A life-sized Jack Skellington from Nightmare Before Christmas, go to Gaymart. It's kitsch, it's camp, and there is a lot of it. Give yourself plenty of time, and go with the right person, and this shopping experience will be a lot of fun. Or take in your great-aunt from Iowa, that'd be funny, too. There is lots of gay paraphernalia as well...I mean, it's called Gaymart. more

This is a great place to go for silly specialty t-shirts and other fun stuff. If you've got a friend visiting you from out of town and want to send them home with something Chicagoish, get them a treat from Gay Mart.Then again, If you want to buy some comfy gear that will get you noticed, this is a great place for that too. more

Dip me in honey and toss me to the lesbians 3/17/2006

The first time that I walked by this shop I saw a shirt in the window that had "Dip me in honey and toss me to the lesbians" written on it. I thought that it was so funny that I had to go in and check out the rest. You can find shirts that have the Home Depot sign on it, but instead of Home it has Homo. This place is awesome. If you live in the area then you should pick up something just for kicks. Hilarious. more

The one and only 8/11/2005

I once spent a whole hour browing through Gaymart. It's way bigger than it looks from the outside, and contains a huge selection of eccelctic items. The store is in the middle of Boy's Town in the Belmont area, so it's part of the whole Queer Chicago atmosphere. If you're in the area, you should stop by and pick up a souvenir. They're pretty affordable here. more

No blue-light specials here!! 8/4/2005

Yes kids you read the sign right- it's GAYmart...located in the center of boystown right on Halstead (where on earth else would it be??). Even if you aren't playing for "that team" Gaymart is worth a visit. It is an extremely fun store- full of witty t-shirts, great cards, unique home decor items, collectibles (think Wizard of Oz, Lucille Ball or Queer as Folk) and the healthy helping of everything you can imagine in rainbow colors. So if your "here and queer", shopping for the beloved homo in your life or simply sight seeing you shouldn't miss this shop. And if you buy something make sure you tell people you bought it at "gaymart" and enjoy the quizzical looks you get! more
