Sunshine Daydream Holiday Shipping Update

We are still shipping for Christmas Delivery


We want to help make your Christmas a happy, hippie one. So we are bringing the boys at Fedex on board. Normally we only ship the US Postal service, but we have decided to add  Fedex to help all you last minute folks out. They also deliver till Christmas Eve. We have negotiated some good rates, but it is still going to be more costly than our regular shipping charges. No one said wait till the last minute!

If you want to guarantee that your order will arrive in time for Christmas, please call our store at 847-550-9999 to place your order.

We also need to have a daytime phone number to reach you. We will not sell your info and won't make crank calls to you late at night. Not everyone checks their email and with Christmas around the corner, the phone is quicker.

Sunshine daydream 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway

We are having a 12 days of Christmas contest and giveaway on facebook. Everyday, someone on our facebook page will win. 12 days of Christmas - 12 winners in all.

Here's how it works: Each day, go to our website and find something you wish to find under your tree. It can be anything we sell. Tie Dye, stickers, tapestries, incense, if we sell it on our website, you could win it. Post what you wish for on our facebook page with a link to the item on our website, and each day starting today at 11:00pm, we will pick someone and they will win their wish.

Now the fine print: You must be a fan of our facebook page to win. Each day you must pick something different and post it to our facebook page. You can only win 1 time during the whole contest. Make your wishes reasonable. The economy sux and I am not giving away $50 hoodies for 12 days straight. I might for 1 or 2 days though. If you win, you can pick your prize up at our store. If you’re not local, we'll ship it to you. No purchase required. The head hippie decides all winners.

Happy Holidaze!

Hippie Holiday Shipping Update


Order as early as possible to guarantee delivery and best selection. Our hippie elves are
getting most orders out same day or within 24 hours. Some orders are being held
because we are missing something and are going to be restocked this week.

When ordering please make sure you include a day time phone number, so  that
we may contact you if we are out of stock or have a question. We will also try and email you, but our emails often get caught up in peoples spam or junk filters. Be aware, that we ship in stock items only and do not backorder. You are only charged for what ships. We make every effort to keep the website updated with
current stock status, but it doesn't always work that way. You can always call  us (847-550-9999) to check stock of an item, and then complete your order online.

We use the U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail (for better or worse) to ship orders.
Overall, they have been pretty good with our packages. As the clock winds down, Express Mail will be the only option for holiday delivery. They are the only ones who will deliver on Christmas Eve & Christmas Day (depending on where you live).

Grateful Dead Alpaca Hoodies

One of the coolest Dead related things we have seen in a while. Every once in a while I'll be at a show and see someone wearing one of these Grateful Dead Alpaca Hoodies. I finally got myself one and in the process I was able to get some extra to sell in the shop. 

We don't have a lot of them and I am not sure if we will be able to get anymore before Christmas. But these are the shit! 100% baby alpaca wool from a cruelty-free alpaca farm in Ecuador. The front has the dancing bears and the back has a huge Steal Your Face design, and boy are they toasty warm! It has 2 side pockets and zips up. They come in a few different colors, but we don't have all sizes in all the colors. We have so few that we are not even putting them on our website, so for now we are only going to sell them in our retail store in Lake Zurich, IL. 

Come on down to the shop and try one on. They are super soft and NOT itchy at all. This is a perfect gift for your favorite deadhead this holiday season. Sunshine Daydream Chicago has lots of new goodies coming just in time for the holidays!
