A Clarendon Hills institution for 35 years, Joelle's Hallmark Shop offers much more than greeting cards. The family-friendly store stocks kid favorites like Silly Bandz and Beanie Babies, while adults can purchase everything they'll need to throw a great party. Of course, Hallmark cards are also popular. Joelle's Hallmark is also a card "specialty store," which means they sell certain lines of greeting cards other Hallmark stores don't offer. Owner Gerry Thoeming and his wife Carol have run the store for over three decades, and they make sure their shop maintains its small-town appeal.
