Antique shops are filled with great finds, but they go quickly, so be sure to buy something you fancy.

Nothing says vintage like an antique shop filled to the brim with old items and treasures. In an age where vintage is very popular, heading to an antique shop may be one of the best ways to find accent pieces, old fashions and jewelry for a steal.

If you've ever watched "Antiques Roadshow," you've witnessed how old, seemingly worthless items are discovered to be worth a fortune, or at least have a fun background story. And while not every item you find in your local antique shops can boast the same status, you may very well discover a treasure of your own.

If you're ready to start shopping, here's a list of 15 mighty, independent must-visit antique shops in Chicago.
