Black Friday at Sunshine Daydream Chicago

We hope you had a grateful Thanksgiving and stuffed yourself silly. The crew here at Sunshine Daydream sure did! It's been a long year and we have a lot to be thankful for.

The insane time known as "Black Friday" is upon us. While we don't have any $79 high def TV's, or $3 coffee makers, we didn't want to be left out of the craziness, so Sunshine Daydream Chicago is having it's own version of "Black Friday" sales. Our sales will last all weekend long, so need to get up at the ass crack of dawn, but if you do, we will be open at 9:00 am on Friday & Saturday, and 10:00 am on Sunday. Can you believe it, 9am?

Hanukkah is next week, and Christmas is less than a month away and we have great gift ideas on sale all weekend long.

Some of the sales include, $15 baja hoodies, 25% off all T-Shirts, 20% off most women's clothes, 20% off posters, and lots more.

Remember, we have moved to Lake Zurich. If you haven't visited us yet in our new digs, this would be a great time to get those holiday gifts at a deep discount.

Have a happy & safe holiday season.

Peace & Love,
Sunshine Daydream Crew

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!

Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, & Beatles Musicskins

Want a cool way to protect your iphone, ipod or laptop, and jazz it up at the same time. We now carry Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, & The Beatles music skins. These high quality musicskins will not only personalize and style your device, but since they are made of premium vinyl, they will protect your device from the harshest scratches. The special adhesive is completely removable and leaves no residue so you can easily remove your music skin. MusicSkins add almost zero bulk so your device will still integrate perfectly with almost any case, bag, dock, iTrip or armband. These make great holiday gifts or stocking stuffers and we even have them for the new 4th generation ipods and iphones that just came out. Visit our store in Lake Zurich, or you can order them here online.
