Midwest Living Review
Located at a busy corner in the heart of Chicago's Greektown, this shop makes candles and sells an intriguing variety of religious merchandise. Ornate Greek icons are behind the counter, along with crucifixes, incense burners, Christmas manger sets and framed pictures. The shelves are stocked with bottles of potions and cleansing products alleged to remove jinxes and ward off the devil. Whatever your religious beliefs, Athenian Candle Company is a fascinating place to poke around.
