While I wish I could take credit for it, but Jen Gordon of Sojourn Bags beat me to it. She has created several bags (from handbag to mesesenger bag) named after Chicago neighborhoods. This Lakeview resident is donating 10% of all proceeds of the "Chicago's Finest" bag, which looks like a Chicago flag, to the Gold Badge Society which supports families of Chicago firefighters and paramedics who have died.
